PADI IDC Koh TaoAnother new PADI Instructor

 

Why take your PADI IDC on Koh Tao Thailand with DJL Diving? 

Well we've put together a number of different PADI Instructor Developlment course (IDC) packages, so you can decide if you'd like to train as an PADI Assistant Instructor, PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer [MSDT] or a PADI Staff Instructor.

Our IDC package prices start at 39,900thb (33,900thb if you are already qualified as a EFR Instructor).  If you are already an Assistant Instructor or have completed the PADI IDC eLearning then contact us as this will reduce the cost of the IDC for you.  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 16,500 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 1,391 AUD (Check current PADI fees as they do change annually). 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 6,500 baht per month in a private fan room, ask for details.

(Please note PADI prices are up to date for 2019, but do change annually)

Here's a detailed description of our PADI Instructor Package:

Introduction

Life as Dive Instructor can be a very rewarding and challenging job, and of course extremely enjoyable one too. As well as being able to introduce others to the amazing underwater world not just here in Koh Tao, Thailand but the rest of the world, there are also many new opportunities arising for Dive Instructors all over the world.

Course Director Monique's Instructor Development Course (IDC) aims to prepare new instructors to meet and take advantage of those opportunities.

Our IDC on Koh Tao follows a proven educational approach which focuses on real-life application of knowledge gained throughout the course.  Business principles, marketing strategies and how to increase earnings through Instructor-level continuing education programs, are all addressed and discussed throughout the program and will be valuable and relevant all around the world and not just here on Koh Tao or in Thailand.

Instructor Training Schedule

The DJL Diving PADI IDC schedule is conducted over 14 days and including free lunch at one of the best restaurants on Koh Tao, our very own dive school Pool Bar & Restaurant! our team base the training schedule around you after, they do this by following their own tried and proven methods.

  • Firstly all candidates attending the IDC will be sent through some Divemaster theory as a recap once they make their deposit.  Then when you are here Monique can  work on skills training in our on-site confined water training facility. If there are any gaps in your knowledge this preparation course will allow our her to identify these and then give extra focus to these areas during the IDC.
  • The 14-day AI/OWSI program which will also include one day for EFR Instructor training.  Most days are split pretty evenly between water work and classroom time.
  • Rather than condensing all the info into the minimum possible timsescale, we opt for shorter days [finishing between 4 - 5 pm].
  • We feel that the shorter days [spread over a longer period] allow for an enhanced retention of the material covered.
  • The last 2 days before the PADI IE we will conduct a mock IE on our premises.
  • This is just a chance to build confidence and prove your readiness on the days before you progress to the IE.
  • We guarentee success in the PADI Instructor exam.  If you don't pass, you can take the next IDC for free.

Once you qualify as a PADI Instructor ....

  • Once you've qualified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, you have the option to stick around and teach your first few certifications here on Koh Tao at DJL Diving.
  • You'll get the chance to build up teaching experience plus if you opt to do the Silver, Gold or Platinum IDC packages you can get certified as a PADI Master Scuba Diver Traininer [MSDT], enabling you to teach specialty courses [e.g. deep, enriched air, navigation etc].
