Aussie Divers Pro Gold IDC Package
This is our second IDC package and is extremely popular with anyone who is seriously thinking about working in the diving industry because of the specialty instructor training that is included in the package price. The more training you have and the more specialties you can teach, the more valuable you become to dive operations, shops, liveaboards and dive center’s.
the more specialties you can teach, the more valuable you become
We also don’t force you into doing specialty instructor training that won’t benefit you or that you don’t enjoy, we have a large selection of specialties that you can choose from, they are listed below.

What Are my PADI Fee’s?
If you wish to be a valid, teaching status, (OWSI) PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Instructor you will be required to pay the following fee’s directly to PADI. Aussie Divers Phuket have no control over these fee’s and none of them are optional, you pay them to PADI during your IDC.
We provide this calculator for your benefit so that you know approximately the cost of certifying as an Instructor with PADI. Fee’s are subject to change without notice.
Please be aware that the fee’s are listed in Australian Dollars, but depending on where you live and where you intend to teach they can be slightly different.
PADI specialty Instructor registration fee of (111$ per specialty) not included in PADI fee table
PADI Instructor Specialty Fee's
Each time you certify in a given PADI instructor Specialty, you will pay PADI a one time processing fee, of 111$. This fee is non-negotiable if you wish to teach that specialty as a PADI instructor. This fee will be charged upon completion of the specialty training, usually this happens after you have graduated as an instructor and begun your specialty training to become a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT).
When Getting Quotes Please Make Sure That The "Total Price" is the Final Amount you Pay
Let's be clear, becoming a PADI scuba diving instructor costs money, you need to pay for your training over the course of your IDC, you need to pay PADI to register as an instructor and there are materials such as the PADI Crew Pack that you are 100% required to have to even begin your IDC training. Some dive center's will not tell you about this until you arrive. It is their way of making an IDC look cheaper than it really is. Please check the final price before signing up with any dive centre. This is to include course tuition, accommodation, boat fees, PADI Fees, IE Fees and the like.
We pride ourselves on giving you honest pricing
Simply check the facts the true facts are above, we have listed ALL shop, materials & PADI fee's that are required to become a valid PADI Scuba Diving Instructor, if you are looking elsewhere at cheaper IDC's please be aware that you will pay the fee's and require the materials listed above regardless of if you knew about them or not.
At Aussie Divers we want you to dive and learn with piece of mind, we are Phuket's busiest Five Star Instructor Development Center and you will not be charged any hidden fees whether they are from us or PADI. We want you to focus entirely on your training while having a good time here in Phuket.
