What to Expect in Your IDC?
The PADI IDC Program at Oceans 5 Gili Air includes the Emergency First Response Instructor Course (EFRI course) and the Instructor Development Course (IDC).
EFRI Course – 2 days
Before you can be certified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, you need to have first completed the EFR Instructor course.
IDC Course – 10 days
The PADI IDC course contains:
- Dive theory presentations on physics, physiology, equipment, decompression theory and skills & environment
- Practice exams
- Classroom time for presentations about how to teach the PADI courses, and other topics like marketing and risk management.
- Confined water skill sessions to practice the 24 skills from the PADI Divemaster course
- Confined water and open water sessions: in-water workshops to learn how to handle students when teaching the PADI courses.
Additional teaching workshops during the IDC include:
- Knot tying workshop
- Lift Bag workshop
- Student control workshop
- DSD workshop
- CESA Workshop: preparing CESA lines and teaching the Controlled Emergency Swimming Ascent safely
These workshops are NOT standard IDC practice. They are additional workshops added into our IDC program. These workshops will give you more experience on teaching skills safely and efficiently.
Our overall objective is to teach you how to be a GREAT PADI Instructor. Passing the Instructor Examination (IE) is a secondary objective; it is NOT the primary objective, and this is what makes us different from other IDC courses. We believe that if you teach IDC students how to be GREAT instructors, then the IE is just a formality.
