Project Description


Want to “live the dream”? Do you feel like traveling the world, meeting people and teaching scuba diving? Looking for a seasonal job or a lifelong career? Bring your passion for the ocean to the next level with the Instructor Development Course (IDC)!

The course is made up of two parts: the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) course. By completing both you could attempt the Instructor Examination (I.E) and become a PADI Instructor!

Looking for an Assistant Instructor course only? Contact us for details!

The IDC course is scheduled over 10 – 14 days including EFR Instructor course (required). Sailing Club Diver runs the IDC with Rainbow Divers’s Course Director Jeremy P. Stein.
