Our IDC package prices start at 39,000thb. In addition to course costs you will need PADI Materials which you'll need to teach, plus all certification fees. You can order your PADI Materials through us for your IDC to take advantage of discounts we receive from PADI, so for your EFR Instructor manual and standard IDC Crew pack you need to allow an additional 16,500 Baht and 4,000 Baht for your EFRI manual, if you are also taking the Staff Instructor qualification you must also buy the Course Direct manual which is 18,000 Baht. The costs of your Instructor Exam [IE], your Instructor and EFRI cards and your Instructor membership fee which you'll pay directly to PADI is 1,286 AUD. You may want to check the current exchange rate and can check this directly on the PADI website. We do not include accommodation on Koh Tao as part of this package, however we can assist you in finding accommodation once you are here or we can book you into monthly accommodation that starts in price from 9,000 baht per month, ask for details.
