Instructor Development Courses, Phuket, Thailand

Ever wonder why some people are willing to throw away good jobs, pack up everything they can fit into a single suitcase, sell everything else, say goodbye to all the people they know; to board a flight to a country you've likely never heard of? It is because they are about to embark on the biggest and greatest lifestyle change one can make. They are about to become PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Instructors, it's a calling for some, a must for others, an amazing adventure for all, Aussie Divers IDC Phuket is here to help you achieve it with minimal hassle. We are one of Phuket, Thailand's most professional and sought after Instructor Development Centre's & through this website we hope to educate you on exactly what it takes to become an instructor and why the lifestyle is like nothing you've ever experienced before.

Phuket also happens to be a very lucky place, sporting great diving, healthy tropical reefs & a very large dive industry that is busy all year round. This means finding work after graduating isn't a problem, nor will you be diving in cold lakes or frigid waters, in fact; you'll be diving in 28° celsius clear tropical waters teaching a variety of different PADI courses to happy customers. The only bad thing about doing your IDC in Phuket, is that you'll regularly be left wondering why you ever worked in a stuffy office, commuted for hours on end & worked a job you didn't even like when you could have been a scuba diving instructor in Thailand the whole time?
