We want you to succeed and get the job of your dreams, so here are just a few ways that we go the extra mile to help you.
Before you begin your Instructor Development Course it's a good idea to pick one of our four IDC Preparation packages, to compliment the self-study you will be doing leading up to the course.
Option 1 GOOD - We will send you our “How to Pass the Theory Exams” booklet so that you can work through the main five areas of dive theory that you need to get familiar with, before the IDC starts and offer 10 hours of support whilst you go through this. There is no time within the IDC to teach theory, it’s expected that you have the knowledge as a prerequisite, so it is important that you take this seriously and spend some time on it. We will also send you a selection of IDC style questions to help with your studies. This option is £100 (or FREE if booked alongside the Budget IDC package)
Option 2 BETTER - We are massive fans of the Dive Theory online that PADI have developed and we highly recommend that you take this option if you are not already 100% confident across the board with your theory. It is beautifully presented and guides you through what you need to know in an easy-to-understand way. You do quizzes throughout and knowledge reviews at the end, which actually count towards your IDC, so it’s really relevant. You will also receive the Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving along with all the benefits from our "Good" package but with unlimited support all for just £200 (or just £150 if booked alongside either the Budget or Standard IDC packages)
Option 3 FABULOUS - If you aren’t a fan of working through things only your own, then come and join us for a two day IDC preparation course including Emergency o2 Provider Instructor training plus all the benefits from our "Better" package. We will work through all of the theory, and also give you some other hints, tips and hacks to make your IDC go smoothly and successfully. Dates for this are available on request, so please get in touch. The cost for this is £300 (only £200 if booked with either our Budget or Standard IDC packages)
Option 4 AMAZEBALLS - This is an extended version of our "Fabulous" package which will be conducted over 3 days and include the Adaptive Techniques Specialty Instructor training too. This is an awesome specialty that will truly get you "Thinking Like an Instructor" prior to your IDC and give you the edge over other instructors when you are certified. The cost for this is only £400 (only £300 if booked either our Budget, Standard or Awesome IDC packages)
Help Save Our Ocean Planet
We train each and every IDC candidate to be a Dive Against Debris Instructor - free of charge - because we are passionate that we should all be doing our part in rescuing the planet and the oceans, and we feel if we do this for you, hopefully you will pay it forward and do the same for your students, so there are thousands more divers around the world removing marine debris and logging their findings with Project Aware to enable better lobbying of governments globally to tackle this issue.
Free Emergency First Response Instructor Training
We are both DAN Dive Medic Technicians, meaning we have received some very in-depth training and experience in pre-hospital level care. Our EFRI courses therefore are like no other - both in terms of content, depth and fun! We believe that these skills are so crucial to all dive professionals that we do not charge you a penny for the training, zilch, nada, nothing. You're welcome.
Business of Diving
We can offer a comprehensive Business of Diving programme to all PADI pros that want help with how to improve their skills to make them a more well rounded and employable individual - it is also worth 3 PADI seminar credits!
Included in this programme is an overview of Business Principles, an interactive pricing workshop, resource planning, HSE considerations as well as other hands on activities tailored to your needs.
