PADI INSTRUCTOR COURSE (IDC) Print E-mail

PADI INSTRUCTOR COURSE 

Buddha view - Koh Tao.For the IDC we work directly with BUDDHA VIEW 5 STAR IDC RESORT on Koh Tao. BUDDHA VIEW has their very experienced resident course director- Mark Soworka from Australia who works with his team of staff instructors to hold an IDC every 2 months and sometimes every month.

What makes these guys so successful is that they are very experienced and have been holding IDCs for many years so that whilst you learn in a professional atmosphere they are relaxed and you will have a lot of fun.

The big plus for BUDDHA VIEW is that they have their own separate IDC center for the IDC candidates only, with air con lecture theatre, digital projector, surrounds sound and all the materials you will ever need during your IDC. It is the only IDC center in Thailand and means you will not be disturbed by open water, advanced courses etc being conducted nearby.

Buddha view idc center.During the IDC you will go through the Divemaster theory exams again and you must simply get a higher percentage of questions right than in the DM course. Mark and the team will teach you how to instruct PADI dive courses the way PADI wants you to instruct and you will give lots of presentations so you know how to conduct the academics of PADI dive courses.

They will show you how to brief on the dive boat before diving and how to debrief after dives with your students and they will show you how to problem solve underwater. You will also learn how to navigate the PADI standards and procedures manual or CD ROM that every instructor uses.

Well done you are now a PADI dive Instructor!
