For those who would love to continue professional education in Diving after the Divemaster and would like to teach Diving Courses to others, in the IDC course you learn everything you need for it.
The IDC is conducted by a Course Director at Mister Diver Diving Resort and 5 stars IDC center.
If you are interested to do this course, we would love to discuss all the details with you. There has to be minimum 3 people to start this course. After finishing the IDC you have to participate the IE (Instructor Examination)

(Dive professionals who hold an instructor rating with another diving organization may be eligible to enroll directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes prior instructor training and provides a path to become a PADI Instructor.)

What’s an IE?

An Instructor Examination (IE) is a two-day evaluative program that tests an instructor candidate’s teachingability, dive theory knowledge, skill level, understanding of the PADI System, and attitude and professionalism. PADI IEs are standardized and conducted by specially trained PADI Instructor Examiners.
