As a companion to the Instructor Manual, this manual gives you recommended techniques you can use to help divers meet the confined and open water performance requirements, things to consider when organizing, and how to help you put safety first.
Philosophy and Approach Next you’ll find the Philosophy and Approach section, which discusses the PADI organization and the PADI System of diver education. It also reviews PADI’s approach to risk management and the quality management, assurance and recognition programs. There’s information about training dive leaders and other important references about instructional approach and philosophy.

Becoming a Padi Scuba Instructor, How long is the course?
The Padi Instructor Course can be completed either in a 5 – 7 day format – the IDC – or two separate sections AI & OWSI. We Prefer a less stressed candidates who is more than prepared for their padi idc exams. Our 9 Day Padi IDC Program, you’ll have no stress more you enjoyable and have fun during your PADI IDC.

You can join the Padi IDC program if you are a Divemaster or an Assistant Instructor. There is always the eLearning IDC Theory online, should you take this option, you will not need to attend parts of the Padi IDC Live Presentations as this is covered on-line.
Who teaches the Padi IDC program?
A PADI Course Director must conduct the full Padi IDC or the Padi OWSI program. We have our own IN-House PADI Course Director Joey A. Ridge, check to see if your Padi CD is just employed or is Full Time. PADI Staff Instructors can conduct the Padi AI portion of the Padi IDC program, should you choose to do this course separately.
When you take your Padi Instructor Course, IDC at Easy Divers Cyprus, you will be taught by Easy Divers PADI Course Director, a highly experienced PADI Course Director for many years experience and employed full time on staff.
Independent Learning Prerequisite, Prior to the start of an PADI Instructor Development Course, PADI Assistant Instructor course or PADI OWSI program, a self study is wise of the knowledge workbook and notes from your PADI divemaster theory is wise choice. Completing PADI Knowledge Reviews ( PADI Dive Knowledge Workbook), IDC Theory on line may be accomplished by self-study, the PADI Instructor Course eLearning online. You will be credited for taking the online dive theory and IDC Theory online during the PADI IDC Program. When candidates take the online part of the PADI IDC, you can be excluded from certain parts of the LIVE IDC Lesson Presentation. It will also give you a head start on your PADI IDC.

Lesson components of on-line academic Padi instructor course can be also presented during a LIVE PRESENTATION, this done by a PADI COURSE DIRECTOR during the PADI IDC as standard.
I personally think that you need to start studying your theory exams physics, physiology, equipment, skills and environment. These are what we learn during the PADI Divemaster Course and must be revised before the IDC. For an expert help in your pre-IDC study look at the PADI IDC Guide, it will also help you through the difficult questions and answers on the PADI IDC and IE.

What preparation do I need to do?
You will need to complete any knowledge reviews contained, prior to attending either the Padi Instructor Course PADI IDC or PADI AI program. This could be the Dive Theory Online or the Knowledge Workbook. Our advice is also to practice your skill circuit and revise your theory, in particular Physics, Physiology, Equipment, Skill & Environment and RDP/eRDPml using the knowledge workbook and practising on the Divemaster exams for these topics.
Many centres advertise the cheapest Padi Instructor Courses, why don’t Easy Divers?
With price brings Quality CHEAP or FREE, for those that can’t compete on quality, so they compete on price. We also keep our number of candidates to a maximum five, for quality! What would you like us to remove from the program to be able to make the Cheap PADI Instructor IDC – the experience of the Course Director and staff, quality, knowledge, professionalism, experience, patience, time, safety or…………?
What are Padi Fees 2014 EMEA Profesional Applications Fees and How Much To Pay
Padi Fees 2013 EMEA Applications Fees Padi fees are paid DIRECTLY to PADI and not the Padi Dive Centre or the Padi Instructor. Normally the Dive Center or Padi Course Director will charge yo just for the courses you take with them “The PRICES” and the Padi Fees are separate to the course.
How fit do I need to be?
You certainly need to be dive fit and have a current medical signed by a doctor. We are not asking you to be Olympian Divers but a high standard of fitness is required, as you will need to swim 800metres with mask snorkel and fins.
Many advertisers claim a 100% pass rate at there PADI IE ?
Beware of the false advertiser or certain countermeasures may have been costed into to your Padi IDC. Many centres claim this but do not say on which IE the candidates all pass the first, second or…. Also many will also claim this with the get out clause, being that if you fail on theory its not their responsibility. Successfully completing the IE is a logical conclusion of your preparation and subsequent development on the IDC program.
We have had a FIRST TIME PASS for ALL our Padi IDC Candidates in 2009 – 2010 – 2011 – 2012 – 2013 Padi Examination First Time 100% Pass Rate. Remember, you may have completed the Padi Instructor Course but if your not ready, we would not let you attend the PADI Instructor Examinations, just as you would never put a student in the water or certify a diver whom you did not think was ready for it.
Our Padi Course Director Joey Ridge will not recommend you attend the Padi IE until both you and he feels you are ready for it. Don’t stress yourselves out about this part, the PADI Instructor Development Course will develop you and make you a very successful instructor candidate, long after your instructor training.
I have heard the course is very stressful & intense is that true ?
The Padi Instructor Development Course is certainly and can be very fast moving, but enjoyable. However we will do our best to provide you with a relaxed low stress comfortable learning environment. People learn best when they are having fun, we think you should have fun too. This is why we choose a longer PADI IDC program, giving PADI IDC candidates time to grasp any new techniques, skills or theory.
After completing the course how long have I got before I have to attend an PADI IE?
You have up to 12 months to attend an IE before having to repeat the Padi Instructor Course training again. We have arranged with PADI to provide an PADI IE here in Cyprus, straight after your Padi IDC course, or we can provide you with a full list of exams local to you in another country should you wish to attend a PADI IE outside of Cyprus.
What happens if I can’t complete the program?
We will work within reason, with you to help you subsequently reach any and all performance requirements for the program. We will then help you with remediation until you meet the requirements during the normal course schedule.
Can PADI Assistant Instructors trained in the old program simply take the 4-day PADI OWSI program?
Yes – but remember it is up to the Course Director to evaluate candidates suitability, so some may be asked to attend the whole program. Since the new Padi standards for 2010 has changed, you will need to attend the full IDC.
Will I need my own equipment for the PADI IDC?
Yes – I think you would agree that as a dive professional you should look the part and not have rented or borrowed school equipment. Could you imagine a builder or a plumber coming to your home to make repairs and borrowing your tools???? Not Professional!
What if candidates do not have the opportunity to complete the PADI on-line independent study section?
Then the IDC must accommodate to allow for this study in class. We will cover this in the FREE Prep Course before the IDC.
What happens if I am unsuccessful or FAIL in the PADI IE?
Retaking your PADI IDC diving instructor exam! Should you be unsuccessful you may, at your second IE, retake only the sections in which you were unsuccessful, e.g. failure or failing on the Padi IE skill circuit would result in a make up only on the confined water sessions of the Padi IE Candidates will only be required to pay for the sections they have to retake at a second IE. Not Retaking your FULL PADI IDC – IE diving instructor exam again.
