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 15 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.

In order to start the IDC with us here in 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 proper, Blue Season Bali conducts our Instructor Preparation Course. These sessions 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.

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
Padi Instructor Examination

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!
