The Padi instructor training or PADI IDC is one of the most intense courses you’ll ever take. For this reason it is quite important to choose an IDC center that you can trust, where you will feel comfortable and at home. At BB Divers we will give you a great training with a thorough preparation, but not forgetting the fun on the way. Our learning environment is very relaxed, it is what you expect of Thailand, the lifestyle of this great country, but with training up to international standards. We will be focusing on your strengths and reinforce the areas that are necessary to develop your own identity and style as a dive professional. At BB Divers, we wish to create dive instructors who will immediately be active and not just being successful at the Padi IE (instructor exam). Therefore, we initiated in 2017 a partnership with Your-IDC, a union of passionate Padi Course Directors with years of experience developing dive professionals all over the world. [www.your-idc.com]
Basic program for the IDC
At BB Divers, we are exclusively teaching the Revised Padi IDC curriculum which has been launched worldwide in the 4th quarter of 2019. You will start your IDC with a state-of-the-art E-learning program which can be accessed on your preferred mobile device, off- or online. It includes a dive theory segment which will allow you to cover this study completely before the start of the IDC, thus leaving us more time for practical training.
The IDC will be focused on interesting classroom presentations, dry and wet workshops, as well as water skill sessions and your teaching presentations in the classroom, confined and open water.
An IDC is usually structured as follows:
· Warm-up: to launch everything, review some eventual topics, check paperwork (2 days).
· IDC+ EFRI: the core of your Instructor Development Course (12 days) combined with the Emergency First Response Instructor course (2 days).
