IDC / Instructor Development Course

If you are interested in becoming a PADI Instructor, please contact us.
We can adjust your Instructor Development Course (IDC) to your needs.
There is more ways to do so than we can put on our website..

We work together with some of the most successful IDC-centers across the globe.
You can do part of your IDC here and finish up in a tropical location or even the other way around.
In Amsterdam, most young divers that want to become a PADI instructor do so because they want to travel.
As a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor or higher your certificate is valid throughout the world. So if you are getting bored with eating another Pad thai, you catch a plane and check out work opportunities in the Caribbean.

Our in house Course Director is Jake Childs, Australian born, currently living in Amsterdam.
This means the main language during your IDC will be English.
