What our IDC candidates say

I just finished my IDC with IDP. It was definetely the right choice! The course directors Berlinda and Tim were super helpful. No matter what question we had they have been there with the right answers. Also all the staff instructors were really nice and helpful. It was easy to recognise that everyone is very experienced with what they are doing. We all enden up feeling well prepared for the IE....and we all passed! Thanks to IDP and everybody involved. It was an amazing experince! I would choose IDP again!

Julia Heintz - IDC November 2018PADI Pro, Instructor - Dauin, Philippines

You won't regret doing your IDC with Instructor Development Philippines! The quality of teaching really shows through the years of experience from the 4 in house course there are lots of other staff instructors available to give teaching and support. It is clear to see that a lot of work has been put in to create the best programme for their candidates.
The facilities are spend the programme learning in two beautiful resorts. Whilst also getting some time in the ocean, experiencing the awesome dive sites of Dauin.
Finally, the included learn to teach programme really gives you a better understanding of how to run a dive course after you graduate. They really support you in getting involved with courses straight away...I finished my IE 2 days ago and I am already team-teaching my first rescue course! 🙂

IDP creates such a good learning environment. The high level of training, the passionate instructors, the way of teaching. They give you the space to grow and learn. This all gave me so much motivation to do the best I could. I highly recommend this organisation to everyone who is thinking about doing the IDC and becoming a PADI Pro!

Really good environment for the IDC. Staff are super passionate about what they do and the quality of teaching is very high. Special shoutout to Berlinda making me feel comfortable from the first email I received from her all the way to the end of the program! Definitely recommend IDP!!
