PADI Instructor Development Course ("IDC")
Are you ready to join the ranks of the dedicated professionals who teach the world’s most progressive and popular scuba diver education programs? Then Go PROSM with an Instructor Development Course.
At Latchi Watersports we run our IDC & EFRI program over 14 days. We time our programs so that the PADI Instructor Exam runs 1 day after our IDC has finished. During the courses, you will have 24/7 support from our in house PADI Course Director.
A PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months may enrol in the PADI Instructor Development Course. You also need:
- 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
You also need to be an Emergency First Response Instructor, but you can earn this rating during your instructor training.
Dive professionals who hold an instructor rating with another diver training organization may be eligible to enrol directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes prior instructor training and provides a path to become a PADI Instructor.
