What does it cover?

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is the cornerstone of PADI’s professional-level training. The course focuses on preparing you to function as a PADI Assistant Instructor or Open Water Scuba Instructor by introducing you to the complete PADI System. The course focuses your ability to use all components of the system as a professional dive educator.

The "bumper bundle" of Crewpack's, including Instructor cue cards & exams for all core PADI courses, Confined and Open
Water lesson prep & Student planning slates for the OW program, a comprehensive library of Specialty Instructor
Guides, PADI's Guide to Teaching in hard-copy and digital formats, Diving Knowledge Workbook to brush up for those
important Instructor Exams, OW Prescriptive Lesson Guides and even a Positive Approach Selling program.

How does it work?

After enrolling, PADI's eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations and workshop that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.

After completion of the OWSI course or full IDC, you must successfully complete a PADI Instructor Examination (IE) and also be a CPR & first aid instructor before certification as an PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

How long do you have to complete the eLearning course?

The E-learning course will be available for 1 year from the time of course registration
