PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC)


Endless possibilities!

Being a PADI scuba instructor means you get to live the dream! PADI is the world leader in recreational diving courses and as a PADI Instructor you can get hired all around the world, from the cold waters of Iceland to the warm and tropical waters around the equator. No matter where you decide to go: your credentials will be recognised and accepted.

Career or hobby?

Whether you decide to change careers or you want to teach in your spare time, it doesn’t matter during our IDCs. Everyone gets treated the same and evaluated the same. If you’ve got the right motivation, then we’d be honoured to help you become a safe, knowledgeable and highly trained scuba professional.

Part-time or full-time course?

The IDCs we run in The Netherlands are all part-time courses. This means you don’t have to take time off from work or your studies. We teach on weekends and sometimes on week nights (e.g. pool sessions).

If you’d rather do a full-time course, 7 to 10 days in a row, we would recommend joining us for our IDCs on Gran Canaria, Spain.

This course consists of academics, self-study, confined water and open water sessions.
