Instructor Development Course

Stock No. IDC
£ 1,050.00

Run in conjunction with The London IDC, The Instructor Development Course or IDC is the full course comprising everything required to become a PADI diving instructor. An IDC covers 3 courses:

  • The Assistant Instructor Course (AI)
  • The Open Water Instructor Course (OWSI)
  • The Emergency First Response Instructor Course.


The course usually takes between 6-9 days depending on how it’s run. We normally run each component over separate long weekends thereby minimising the amount of time you need to take off work.

What’s involved?
