At Sugar land Dive Center we believe it is most beneficial to complete your IDC in one contiguous block of time, though we realize that job or life schedules don't always allow this.  That is why we aslo offer IDC's that are conducted over an extended period such as weekend or weeknight schedules.

IDC Prep Course

In our training experience, we have found the most challenging aspect of the Instructor Exam (IE) is the Dive Theory and Standards Exams.  The IDC Prep course is designed to give the IDC candidate extra dive theory and standards exam preparation to ensure their success on the Instructor Exam.  During a typical IDC, there is little time to review these topics.  The Sugar Land Dive Center IDC Prep Course reviews these topics and identifies any areas of weakness that need strengthening.  This is why our IDC Prep Course is included with all of our IDCs.

Our program comes with our exclusive Sugar Land Dive Center promise!

Our promise to you is simple.  If you complete your IDC with Sugar Land Dive Center, we guarantee you will pass your IE or you can come back and participate in another IDC at no additional cost. (PADI fees not included).

Our goal is for you to become a successful PADI Instructor!
