Already Assistant Instructor? We have more options for you  CONTACT US

Our IDC is over 10 days, which is, what our Platinum Course Director Nicolas Bergere find the best. Shorter would make it difficult to offer you remediation before your final exam. Longer, would make the course tiring.

At the end of this 10 days, you will have to attend your final Instructor Examination (IE) to become an Instructor. This exam is over 2 days.

Our Platinum PADI Course Director Nicolas Bergere does not have a “second job” at All4Diving, neither is the dive center manager, which allow him to allocate 100% of his time on your course, to give you the best possible experience. You will be free at 4.00pm every day, which give you ample time to have any required personal attention with Nicolas and his team at the end of day to ensure you good understanding of the course, therefore, your success at the exam and in your dive career.

Passing the exam is important, but more important is your success as a dive professional. You can be guaranteed to be given all the tools you need for your future, here.
