COURSE DIRECTOR: Jose Villegas O´Connell
CENTRO PADI 5 * IDC: Buceo Marina
Instructor Development Course
The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts:
the Assistant Instructor (AI) course
Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.
Dive professionals complete the entire IDC and attend an Instructor Examination, which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.
Successfully completing just the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification.
When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an Instructor Examination to earn a full PADI Instructor rating.
A PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months may enroll 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.
