IDC, Instructor Development Course
The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is a 10-day training program, which teaches you how to instruct recreational scuba diving.
During the IDC you will use the latest teaching techniques, the complete system of PADI support materials, and will be continuously assessed on your teaching and presentation skills.
You will be required to give additional teaching presentations beyond that of the usual IDC Program. This gives you an added advantage not only during the final Instructor Examination (IE), but also prepare you for your future career as a diving professional.
Upon successful completion you will be awarded an IDC completion form, which is your passport to the IE.
