IDC in the Philippines Schedule 2020

The IDC schedules are conducted around Instructor Exam dates designated by PADI. If the following IDC in the Philippines dates do not fit your needs please contact us to discuss the possibility of alternate dates.

***UPDATE***

Due to the COVID-19 situation our IDC’s are able to be rebooked/postponed at no extra charge. Conditions permitting we will strive to adhere to our scheduled classes however please be flexible if we are unable to do so. Unfortunately this decision will be made by our local government and is out of our hands. If you are unsure or have questions regarding this matter, please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your options. Don’t let this discourage you from signing up; there is a lot of preparation work that you can do during your time at home. We will try to accommodate everyone’s schedule after the virus has been contained.

How long is the IDC?

Many places offer an IDC schedule which includes long days in the classroom and listening to a lot of lectures. We have adopted PADI’s cutting edge system of online study which means you can pre-prepare and get access to the latest course content. This actually cuts down the time spent in the classroom and gives you plenty more time in the water.

All online portions can be completed prior to arriving for the IDC or in our multimedia classrooms where wireless is free and staff will be on hand to answer any questions that may arise. This ensures that you get the benefit of a streamlined modern lecture with an opportunity for hands on instruction. It really is the best of both worlds, using the latest of technology.

Our IDC Program covers a total of 18 days and is structured as follows:

      • 1. Preparation Days (Optional… but recommended & complimentary)
        • 3 days – Dive Theory, Skill Demonstration Practice, Rescue Workshops and Reviews
      • 2. Emergency First Response Instructor Course
        • 2 days – EFR/CFC Instructor Course
      • 3. Instructor Development Course
        • 11 days – Instructor Development Course
      • 4. Instructor Examination
        • 2 days – PADI Instructor Exams
