The Structure Of Your IDC Course In Phuket With Aussie Divers

An IDC takes 12 days to complete fully, with 2 days immediately after that for your IE.

The basic timetable for an Instructor Development Course is below.

Days Activity
-5 to 0 Diving, EFR Renewal, IDC Prep
0 – 5 Part 1: Assistant Instructor [AI]
5 – 12 Part 2: Open Water Scuba Instructor [OWSI]
13 – 14 Instructor Examination [IE]
15 – 20 Specialty Instructor Training

IDC prep dates are days that are put aside for you to use our classroom for any study you wish to do before the IDC begins.

If you need to do some diving before the IDC to refresh skills or just for fun, you need to do them before the IDC begins. There is absolutely no room or time after an IDC begins for fun diving activities.

EFR renewal if required needs to be completed before the IDC begins!

Specialty Instructor training if required is not a set number of days, it depends on the number of specialties your are completing with us.

Living The Dream After Instructor Graduation

Finding work after becoming a Scuba Diving Instructor can sometimes be a daunting task, you are competing against people with much more experience who have been working in the industry longer. The best thing about doing your Instructor Course in Phuket is that there is almost always work for new instructors and Aussie Divers will help you to get it. We have awesome and varied post graduation programs, ranging from 'Ride Alongs' with our elite instructors to instructor internships where experience & responsibility can be had in real world environments with real customers, getting you the qualifications & certifications you need to be attractive to employers.

The absolute best way to ensure employability after you graduate to a fully fledged (OWSI) Open Water Scuba Diving Instructor is to continue your training with PADI, especially when it comes to the PADI instructor specialties we teach here at Aussie Divers. Once you have five Instructor specialties under your belt you will become an M.S.D.T or Master Scuba Diver Trainer, which looks much better on your diving resume'. Specialties include being able to teach the PADI Deep Diver (40m), Enriched Air Nitrox, PADI Wreck Diver, Sidemount Diver, Digital Underwater Photographer courses, plus many many more!

The support I got through the IDC not only from Darren and Ash but from the whole team was unbelie [...]
