Our PADI IDC curriculum consists of three parts the PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) Course, the Open Water Scuba Instructor program (OWSI) and the Emergency First Response Instructor (EFRI) course.

Completion also qualifies you to participate in the OWSI program which we run in conjunction with our IDC program. During the IDC, it is important to understand that our staff will concentrate on your skill and knowledge development, not on testing. The resort setting that we work in provides a low-stress environment that allows you to relax, which makes the learning easier and certainly a lot more fun.
