After meets and greets, you will start the EFR Instructor Course. Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to teach EFR courses both in and outside the diving community.
The Preparation and IDC are held in our PADI 5 Star instructor training facility by our in-house PADI Course Director, Photis Petousis, who has an impressive 25 years in the dive industry! He will polish up your basic dive skills and knowledge in preparation for the IDC itself. By the end of the preparation Photis will know where your strengths and weaknesses lie, therefore creating an IDC tailored to your needs. This is one of the many reasons why we have an amazing pass rate in the IDC and IE's.
You will learn how to apply the PADI system of education by presenting confined water teaching presentations, knowledge development presentations and open water teaching presentations. You will also attend many curriculum presentations and show competence at skill demonstration, the 800m swim and dive theory exams.

5 Instructor Specialities
Once you have successfully completed the IDC you can start training for your 5 Specialities which can include Deep, Night, Navigation, Nitrox and Digital Underwater Photography. As an Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) you will be able to teach all of the PADI recreational diving courses as well as these 5 specialities.
To qualify as an OWSI you will need to pass some exams which will be conducted by a PADI examiner. We will support you through this and include transport to the exams. There's no waiting around, you will be told that you have passed there and then! Nobody likes to wait by the post box. At this point you will have become a PADI OWSI.
Learn how to teach 5 specialty courses. Completing this package of instructor courses with our PADI Course Director means you can teach your 5 specialties from day one. Usually you would have to wait until you have certified 25 students. Instead, once you've certified 25 divers, you can apply to upgrade to PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT).
