PADI IDC Thailand, Phuket
Scuba Diving Instructor courses

PADI IDC Phuket, Thailand

In the PADI IDC Phuket Thailand there are 2 parts, the first part is the PADI Assistant Instructor and the second part is the OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor), these two parts together are the PADI IDC.  We run our IDC on 11 days,  7 days for the Assistant Instructor (AI) and 7 days for the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) at the end of the OWSI we have added a mock IE of 2 days (2 remedial days). There is the possibility to do one part at the time.

We have the possibility to review the dive theory before you arrive in Thailand with the Dive Theory online. If you arrive with a comfortable level of dive theory knowledge you will have more time to spend on the topics of the Instructor Development  course (PADI IDC).

Part 1 – PADI Assistant Instructor – 4 days

The objective of the PADI Assistant Instructor Course (AI) is to introduce candidates to the PADI system of diver education through a combination of presentations, teaching methods and presentation in confined, open water and in classroom. You will learn valuable skills to enable them to undertake certain teaching and supervision activities. We also concentrate on courses a PADI Assistant Instructor can teach.

Once completed, candidates can then enroll on the OWSI course.

Part 2 – PADI OWSI – Open Water Scuba Instructor – 7 days

The objective of the PADI OWSI is to prepare you to teach the full range of core PADI programmes from Discover Scuba Diving to PADI Divemaster, it will also prepare you to function as an effective PADI Instructor by thoroughly familiarizing you with the PADI system and all its diver training programmes

You will give teaching presentations in confined, open water and classroom

After the completion of your OWSI, you can enroll on the PADI IE and become a Scuba diving instructor.
