Already an Instructor with another certifying agency? Then let us show you how easy it to cross over and become a PADI Instructor.
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. We will even include your additional PADI fees!
Your PADI IDC is made up of two parts - the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Most dive professionals will complete the entire IDC and then attend a PADI Instructor Examination (IE) which is the final step to earn your PADI Instructor Certification.
During your IDC you will learn to conduct all PADI core courses. You will be able to organize and present information, conduct skill development sessions and control open water dives. Basically you will become a better public speaker and get really good at demonstrating skills while watching out for diver safety. Key topics you will learn include:
At Sugar land Dive Center we believe it is most beneficial to complete your PADI Instructor Development Class in one contiguous block of time, though we realize that job or life schedules don't always allow this. That is why all our IDC's have weekend and weeknight schedules.
IDC Prep Course
With our training experience, we have found the most challenging aspects of the Instructor Exam (IE) are the Dive Theory Exams. The IDC Prep course is designed to give the IDC candidate extra dive theory 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.
All of our PADI Instructor Development Courses include:
