PADI Instructor / OWSI – Open Water Scuba Instructor
Are you ready to join the ranks of the dedicated professionals who teach the world’s most progressive and popular scuba diver education programs? Then Go PRO with an Instructor Development Course.
The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts – the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.
Prerequisites are being a PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months, 100 dives to attend an IE and a medical statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
You also need to be an Emergency First Response Instructor, but you can earn this rating during your instructor training.
The PADI Instructor Development Course “IDC” with Asia Divers is split into two components: the IDC Online eLearning and a 10 days onsite course here in Puerto Galera. This includes the EFRI course. You can start the online component any time and we are running the 10 days onsite IDC every 2 months, coupled with the PADI Exams right after.
Our IDCs are very quality and marine conservation oriented programs utilizing modern teaching techniques outside and in the water. Be prepared to teach all skills in neutral buoyancy to protect the marine environment and create much better divers throughout your career.Start E-learning Now! Reserve Your Space
Emergency First Response (EFR) Instructor
The EFR Instructor rating is a pre-requisite to the PADI IDC and we are conducting this course every 2 months as the first 2 days of our IDC or also upon request. Teaching people how to confidently help others in case of an emergency is a very rewarding experience and makes our own space safer. “Creating Confidence to Care” is the key slogan throughout this course – and we will discuss different ways how you can structure the course as well as how to make this a fun and rewarding experience for your students.
In preparation for the IDC you also learn how to provide feedback and positive encouragement to all participants, moving into the psychology of teaching.GoPro Now!
