Instructor Development Course
The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts
- the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and
- the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.
Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.
Successfully completing just the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating.
Prerequisites for IDC:
- A PADI Divemaster (or equivalent)
- been a certified diver for six months may enroll in the PADI Instructor Development Course.
- At least 60 logged dives and 100 dives to attend an IE.
- Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months.
- A medical statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months
- During your instructor training you will also earn your Emergency First Response Instructor - EFRI.
In LEPIA we offer Instructor Development Course in late October or Early November (depending on the PADI date). For the IDC you will need 2 weeks and 2 more days for the IE. Please contact us for details on the dates.
