The PADI Instructor Course is the world’s leading Scuba Instructor program. It helps you transform into one of the most marketable dive professionals on the planet, and allows you to live the life of your dreams.
Magic Oceans has teamed up with the internationally renowned team at Pro Dive UK to facilitate some of the IDC courses. Pro Dive UK is run by Platinum Course Director Kerrie Eade and Elite Course Director Bethan Comley, they have gained an unequaled reputation for delivering superb training across the globe. Our IDC offering is truly unique and bespoke to you, encompassing the brand new syllabus only released in November 2019 (which Kerrie and Bethan helped to create). The Instructor Course is comprised of 3 separate courses, the Emergency First Response Instructor Course, the PADI Assistant Instructor Course and then the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Course. It is possible to take these courses separately but it’s best and more convenient to take them all combined in the PADI Instructor Development Course. The course uses cutting-edge techniques and workshops to ensure you are fully prepared to fly through the IE and become a great instructor.
Included in the IDC is free EFR Instructor training and free Dive Against Debris Instructor training as well as some valuable and bespoke workshops developed uniquely by Pro Dive UK.
We always run the instructor course to coincide with the PADI Instructor Exam, which is a 2-day written & practical exam conducted by a PADI staff member immediately after your IDC, so by the time you return home, you are a fully-fledge PADI Instructor.
You start with the PADI Instructor Development Course eLearning which will prepare you for your arrival at Magic Oceans and can be done in the comfort of your own home. The workshops during the course will then build on this knowledge and put it into practice. You need to have a very strong theory knowledge – which can be achieved using the integrated Dive Knowledge Workbook contained in the eLearning, and also using the Pro Dive UK Theory Made Easy document which you will be sent once you sign up. If you would like more help, you can also sign up to the IDC Preparation Day with Kerrie and Bethan, just before your IDC begins.
