*We understand that not everyone has reliable access to the internet. For this reason we also offer the option to participate in the IDC Online lectures in person within our IDC classroom. These presentations will be delivered by our IDC Staff and Course Directors live and in person at no additional cost. These live presentations are conducted two days prior to the Preparation Days.

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 17 days and is structured as follows:

      • 1. Preparation Days (Optional… but recommended & complimentary)
        • 3 days – Dive Theory, IDC online, Dive Skills, Workshops and Reviews
      • 2. Emergency First Response Instructor Course
        • 2 days – EFR/CFC Instructor Course
      • 3. Instructor Development Course
