PADI Instructor Course

The main objective of the IDC is prepare you for teaching in the real world – not just to pass the IE!

The PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) shows you how to become a good instructor & how to use all the available PADI educational materials to efficiently and effectively teach your students in the future.

PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors may conduct a broad range of PADI programs from the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course to the PADI Divemaster Course.
During the IDC, you’ll learn to use and adapt the PADI System of diver education to individual student needs. Comprehensive training, supported by a wide variety of PADI educational materials, earns PADI Instructors respect from both students and peers. You’ll practice teaching on your fellow IDC candidates and our staff, allowing you to see how others teach, what works for them, and tips that will make you a better instructor when you finish the course.



Once you have completed the IDC you will be ready to sit the I.E. (Instructor Examination), a 2-3 day exam hosted by PADI representatives on scheduled dates.
