PADI Scuba Instructor Course - IDC Bali
Our PADI IDC has completely changed since 2010. We are breaking with traditional high-priced PADI IDC packages and and leaving them in the dust by packing in valuable components not currently offered anywhere else. We do this to support our company mission of offering complete, high-quality professional training at affordable prices. Our 28 day PADI IDC package is truly one of a kind world-wide. Here's why:
By standards, a PADI IDC can be conducted in as little as seven days. Not here. There is so much valuable information stored in the heads of our senior PADI Instructor Development staff that we have developed exclusive workshops and seminars to get that information to you easily and effectively. To do this, we invite you to come and spend a month with us in Bali learning how to be a PADI instructor- in the real world, not just in the classroom. In the interest of quality, space is limited on these programs, so we do require that you book and pay in advance to reserve your place.
Our custom-written workshops and seminars include:
- How to actually teach an Open Water Course!
- Ascents / Descents
As with all courses, you will be need to give 100% commitment to get the most out of your training. You will be with others like you who are also working to become PADI Instructors. Working as a team is necessary and will give you much greater success. Our award-winning Course Directors will be with you throughout the course to ensure that you have the best possible start as an Instructor.
The actual PADI IDC is conducted over 11 days and is a really enjoyable experience for all involved. Our Instructor Development Team will be there to assist you with any problems and to guide you effectively through the journey to becoming a PADI Instructor. Our 100% success rate during the PADI IE in 2011 is unmatched by any other team on the island...
In order to start the IDC Bali it is important that you have all of the necessary PADI materials and diving equipment. Whilst scuba equipment can be rented we are unable to provide rental PADI materials. You are expected to have everything on the list before starting the IPC or IDC. If you need to purchase some of your materials or even equipment, we can help you out with great discounts here in Bali.
Scuba Instructor Preparation Course (IPC)
Prior to the start of the PADI IDC Bali, Blue Season Bali conducts our two day Instructor Preparation Course. These two days are focused on getting you up to the level necessary to begin the IDC. All of our IDC Bali candidates are welcome to join us before the IPC and IDC starts in order to gain more experience. With the preparation course we primarily focus on the following:
- Confined water skill demonstrations workshop - you will practice skill demonstrations and develop your abilities to effectively show students how to perform the basic scuba diving skills.
- Dive theory - you will be given dive theory exams to complete along with IDC staff elaborations for any materials that candidates need to work on.
- PADI Standards and Procedures - you will work on how to effectively use the PADI Instructor manuals including how to find and use PADI standards and procedures.
PADI Instructor Course (AI & OWSI)
Once we have completed the preparation course we will then begin the ten days of Instructor Development with Indonesia's top instructor development team.
The PADI IDC not only prepares you to pass the PADI IE, it also prepares you to become a professional dive instructor that can work effectively in the dive industry. You will go through a number of IDC curriculum presentations from your Course Director, plus you will present knowledge development, confined water and open water presentations during the Instructor course.
We add in a number of other special items such as the Duty of Care workshop and the Business of Diving workshop. For those candidates choosing this one-month package you will also receive the PADI Emergency First Response Instructor Course and five Specialty Instructor Courses: Wreck, Deep, Nitrox, Drift and Emergency Oxygen Provider. These are among the most popular PADI specialty courses and will help you jump start your scuba diving career. This training in beautiful Bali is priced at only USD 1950.00, including lunches and twin-share accommodation.
During the PADI IDC in Bali we provide you with best possible environment in which to learn. Our IDC classroom, swimming pool and your accommodation are all in one central location. This enables you to spend more time in the water and less time travelling.
Please note: these fantastic extras are included in your PADI IDC package only if you book and pay in advance. It's that easy.
PADI Instructor Evaluation - IE
Once you complete your PADI IDC program, you may attend the PADI IE here in Bali. This is where you can show the PADI examiner that you are ready to be a PADI Instructor. No one will teach you, no one will guide you. It is all up to you now. But you should not be worried as the experience will not be new to you as you will have already successfully completed many confined water, open water and knowledge development presentations.
During the PADI IE, you will have to successfully complete the following:
- Dive theory and Standards exams.
- Knowledge development presentation
- Confined water presentation - one skill
- Open Water presentation - two skills combined
- Skills demonstration circuit
- Rescue assessment
After completing the PADI IE, the only thing left to do is celebrate! You are now a PADI Instructor!
