Extended Prep (optional) – For a few of our IDCs we have added 7-14 days of Prep, and this is purely optional.

Make sure you are ready! We find that frequently candidates have not had much experience with helping on courses as a DM and so we are offering this Extended Prep to help provide this experience. It is run by Restuning, our Indonesian Master Instructor and IDC Manager, and she will also help with anything else that is needed to get you ready (need any skills brushing up?). We originally started this specially for local Indonesian IDC candidates, but we think it could be valuable to anyone and so its open to all of our IDC candidates!!

IDC – Our IDC is a 14-day long program and covers the Assistant Instructor, Open Water SCUBA Instructor, Emergency First Response Instructor and Care for Children Instructor Courses.

MSDT – Each IDC is followed by the optional PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer Course (MSDT) over 3 days. Candidates choose 5 PADI Specialty courses that they would like to become instructors for, and programs are conducted that train the candidates how to organize and teach these courses. Note: Speciality courses available may be subject to the location, please contact us for more information.

IDC Staff Instructor – this is conducted in conjunction with every IDC program. The IDC Staff Instructor course starts the same time as the IDC prep and runs until the end of the IDC Curriculum.
