SDI & PADI IDC Dates 2024 Schedule

Here is a typical description of an IDC explaining the span of the SDI and PADI IDC Dates 2024. On the first day there is usually a free course preparation done to refresh knowledge that may be got rusty since the completion of the Divemaster. This is to make sure that all candidates are, more or less, at the same starting point.

After, most of the training days are devoted to the IDC. Candidates learn how to develop a class of confined water and another in the open sea. They are trained in preparing a theory class and studying new knowledge applied to dive theory. Participants must demonstrate a thorough understanding of the teaching methodology. In addition, they also have to demonstrate they have the skills they need to teach, control, and care for the students, good judgment, and teaching ability. These are all the requirements expected from a good Dive Instructor!

Two training days are typically dedicated to the Instructor Emergency First Respond (EFR) Course. Anyone who comes to an IDC is aware of how important first aid is in such a profession as diving. Therefore, all diving instructors besides teaching diving are also certified to teach first aid courses. That is, not only to know how to act in emergency situations but also to teach others how to act in those situations. The EFR Instructor Course also includes an Oxygen Provider Instructor Course for free!

Once certified as EFR Instructor and successfully completing the IDC, candidates go to the next stage: the three days of Instructor Exam, where an official examiner will assess whether they gather all the requirements to become an Open Water Scuba Instructor. To get this achievement, they must pass a diving theory test and another of diving standards. They also must direct two classes of confined water, open water and a theory class. In addition, they need to demonstrate mastery of certain diving skills in the pool.

After completing all the training, participants will receive a diploma that certifies them as an Open Water Scuba Instructor.
