Our 5 star training center teaches the PADI Instructor Development Course on Phi Phi in multi languages however the the base language is English.
The Instructor Development Course:
Focuses on preparing candidates to function as PADI Assistant Instructors and / or
PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.
The PADI IDC provides individuals who already possess instructor-level dive theory knowledge, role-model waterman ship and rescue skills, and leadership abilities with additional training that allows them to implement the PADI System in confined water, classroom and open water environments.
The IDC also helps instructor candidates gain a complete understanding of PADI’s educational goals and philosophies.
The PADI IDC begins with independent learning and encompasses both the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.
The IDC offers potential instructor candidates several training options and flexibility for reaching their professional goals.
PADI IDC Options include:
- PADI Divemasters may choose to attend just the AI course.
- PADI Divemasters may attend all components that make up the IDC (7-day minimum) and, upon successful completion, go on to a PADI Instructor Examination (as long as all other IE prerequisites have been met).
- PADI Assistant Instructors may attend the OWSI program and, upon successful completion, go on to an IE (as long as all other IE prerequisites have been met).
- Scuba instructors affiliated with other certification organizations may attend an OWSI program and, upon successful completion, go on to an IE.
- Scuba instructors or dive supervisors affiliated with other certification organizations may choose to attend an entire IDC and, upon successful completion, go on to an IE.
These options allow candidates to plan appropriate breaks in training to further hone their knowledge, skills and leadership abilities or they can attend a continuous program that results in PADI Instructor certification.
