During the PADI Instructor Development Course (PADI IDC), you will learn the PADI instructor training system of Education.  This is accomplished through presenting Confined Water Presentations, Knowledge Development Presentations and Open Water Presentations. Over a minimum of five days, but usually more like seven or nine, the IDC teaches you to conduct all PADI core courses. You’ll be able to organize and present information, conduct skill development sessions and control open water dives. Basically, you become a better public speaker and get really good at demonstrating skills while watching out for student diver safety.

Upon successful completion of these three courses you will be ready for the PADI IE which is a 2 day standardized, objective evaluation conducted by PADI Instructor Examiners from PADI America who fly to Dominican Republic several times a year.

At Coral Point Diving we conduct our IDC courses directly before the PADI IE so you are fully prepared for the evaluation.
