Readiness Assessment

Been prepared to advance your career is always a good idea and there are lots of ways you can make sure that you are ready for your own IDC.

First thing is to check out the eLearning here (go to modern media section) Of course this is a diving course and one of the highest levels you can take so, we would expect your diving skills to be a very high level when you arrive.

If it's been a while since you have been in the water and preformed skills like, rescue, search & recovery or demonstrating the 24 basic open water skills then, its a good idea to get in some practice before you start your IDC. A good way to do this is to sign up to the Divemaster experience week here at Asia Divers. During the week you get to work with our very experienced dive team, practice the mentioned skills above and take a few theory exams, plus do a few dives on our fantastic reef system. If your time at Asia Divers is limited then, it would be a good idea to practice where you are now. We have lots of friends in the industry around the world so just send us your details, where you are and we will help put you in contact with someone close by who can be of assistance.

Signing up to the IDC Online is probably the best thing you can do, this will go through the necessary knowledge foundation needed for a successful PADI PADI instructor in a ever competitive industry.

It is also a good idea to sign up to the Theory online, which will go through the 5 theory sections that you will be tested on during your IDC and Instructor exam (IE) This is the most failed part of the exam so, getting a head start is imperative. You can sign up to both of these programs https://apps.padi.com/scuba-diving/elearning/?irra=2736 and complete them at home at your own leisure.

Marine Conservation Focus

Without the marine environment the dive industry would simply not exist, therefore Asia Divers makes this our main focal point.

This is reflected on our IDCs with the expectation that you will always be aware of your environment both in and out of the water. We also include a Dive Against Debris Instructor Course so, you will pass on the skills and attitude to your own divers in the future. This certification is also credited to your Master SCUBA Diver Trainer (MSDT) For more information on how to be come a MSDT please contact us here
