Career Development IDC (Open Water)

Our Career Development IDC teaches more than just the required materials as we show you different aspects of the dive industry so that you are more marketable to employers.


We will take you from your current level to Speciality Instructor in readiness for your Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating. To this end the course focuses less on Divemaster work experience and more on Instructor work experience.

Tell Me About It

You will leave this Apprenticeship well qualified but also well experienced in diving, teaching, safety, operations, compressor and equipment maintenance, and the back office areas of scheduling, recruiting and booking. The aim of this course is to qualify you to work anywhere within the industry with a massive head start above other newly qualified instructors. The course includes all key PADI courses with a focus on interest areas up to instructor, and also includes all fees and materials. We focus on mentoring you through the ratings whilst gaining experience in real teaching situations. With this in mind the only thing you need bring is enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
