Make The Ocean Your Office

Become a PADI Instructor!

And share your passion about scuba diving and underwater word with others!

Our PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) is your gateway to turn your passion into an amazing career as a certified Open Water Scuba Instructor, ready to teach and inspire others to explore the Ocean.

Whether you dream to work, our PADI IDC opens the door to unique career opportunities.

PADI IDC Greece – Course Structure: The PADI IDC is conducted in Aqua Divers Club, 5 Star PADI Resort – Gialova, Messinia, W Costa Navarino Hotel, and composed of classroom sessions, confined water (pool) training, dry training sessions, and open water training. You will learn and practice teaching methodologies (classroom, confined water, open water training) and practical skills.

Duration: The duration of the IDC is 14 days. After, successfully completing the PADI IDC, you will take the Instructor Examination (IE).

We know how important is to prepare a candidate for the real world of diving instruction rather than just to pass the Instructor exams.  That’s why our IDC is longer. Also we start your preparation before the IDC, organizing zoom meetings to ensure that you don’t face any difficulties with the theory.

All the courses are conducted in a low stress, relaxed environment with a lot of fun. Our IDC facility is open all day, so candidates have more time to study, to prepare assignments, or to discuss any concerns.  We are also available for any remedial tuition at any time.

The ability to pass an IE is a natural progression of taking the IDC.
