PADI INSTRUCTOR DEVELOPMENT COURSE With Sugar Land Dive Center

Next PADI IDC starts Saturday, August 25, 2018

PADI 5 Star IDC Sugar Land Dive Center

The PADI Instructor Development Course (PADI IDC)  is made up of two parts - the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.  Most dive professionals will complete the entire IDC and then attend a PADI Instructor Examination (IE) which is the final step to earn your PADI Instructor Certification.

During your IDC you will learn to conduct all PADI core courses.  You will be able to organize and present information, conduct skill development sessions and control open water dives.  Basically you will become a better public speaker and get really good at demonstrating skills while watching out for diver safety.  Key topics you will learn include:

  • PADI Standards and Procedures for courses you can teach wth in water workshops
  • Learning, Instruction and the PADI System
  • Risk Management and DIver Safety
  • Marketing Diving and Sales Consulting

The PADI Instructor Development Course (PADI IDC) is the cornerstone of professional level scuba diver training. The Instructor Development Course (PADI IDC) focuses on preparing you to function as a qualified professional PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor by introducing you to the complete PADI instructor training system. The course focuses your ability on using all components of the system as a professional dive educator.  The PADI IDC is a combination of the PADI Assistant Instructor and the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor courses.

At Sugar land Dive Center we believe it is most beneficial to complete your PADI Instructor Development Class in one contiguous block of time, though we realize that job or life schedules don't always allow this.  That is why we also offer IDC's that are conducted over an extended period such as weekend or weeknight schedules.

IDC Prep Course

With our training experience, we have found the most challenging aspects of the Instructor Exam (IE) are the Dive Theory Exams.  The IDC Prep course is designed to give the IDC candidate extra dive theory exam preparation to ensure their success on the Instructor Exam.  During a typical IDC, there is little time to review these topics.  The Sugar Land Dive Center IDC Prep Course reviews these topics and identifies any areas of weakness that need strengthening.  This is why our IDC Prep Course is included with all of our IDCs.

Our program comes with our exclusive Sugar Land Dive Center promise!

Our promise to you is simple.  If you complete your IDC with Sugar Land Dive Center, we guarantee you will pass your IE or you can come back and participate in another IDC at no additional cost. (PADI fees not included).
