Ever thought about teaching people all about your passion? Teach people how to dive? Than it is time to become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. Being a PADI Dive Instructor is a great career. Dive Careers Europe gives to the chance to make that a reality.

Dive Careers Europe is created in cooperation with Sea Spirit Diving Resort and Dive-Careers.com. Getting your certification with Dive Careers Europe will give you the opportunity to work all around the world! The schedule of the IDC, Instructor Development Course, will look like the following:

The pre-IDC. This is the time to get an idea about your demonstration skills and your knowledge about the dive-theory. Together we will look what you already know about the different topics of the dive theory: Physics, Physiology, Decompression Theory, Equipment and Skills and Environment. Also we will have a look to the PADI General Standards & Procedures. In the water we will do a Skill Circuit which includes all the demonstration skills of the Open Water Diver Course. It is a great time to get to know each other!

Now it really starts! For 10 days we will be focused on everything you need to know and need to learn to become the best Diving Instructor. We will be practising Academic Presentations, so you know how to teach in the classroom. Furthermore we will be a lot in the water, doing Confined Water Presentations and Open Water Presentations. We will teach you the structure so you can teach your students in the best way how to learn diving – step by step -. We will repeat all the presentations several times and each time you will be evaluated by our Course Director. Another important part of the IDC is the PADI Instructor Manual where all the General Standards and Procedures are explained. As an instructor you will use this Instructor Manual a lot to organise your courses so we will teach you how to use it in the most optimal manner and how to find the right information.

After the IDC, you will be ready for the PADI Instructor Examination. During 2 days, PADI Examiners will evaluate on all the presentations we have been practising during the IDC and there will be a Theory Exam (Physics, Physiology, Decompression Theory, Skills and Environment and Equipment) and the General Standards & Procedures Exam.

During the IDC, we will also do the Emergency First Responder Instructor Course. A big plus in your career because with this certification you are able to teach EFR to your students before they do the Rescue Course.

The requirements are that you need to be already certified as a Dive Master (or the equivalent), have at least 60 logged dives (100 before you get to the Instructor Exam). Also, you must have been certified as a diver (open water or equivalent) for at least 6 months. You also must have proof of CPR and First Aid training within the last 12 months, be fit for diving and submit a Medcial Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
