For many divers the passion for SCUBA is so strong they need to do it everyday and share their enthusiasm for it with the world. What better way to do it than to becoming an Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI). To achieve this, one must take part in an Instructor Development Course (IDC) and then complete the Instructor Exam (IE). This is a globally standardised and recognised program, but why settle for the industry standard when you can join a 5 Star PADI IDC Centre on a paradise beach and excel with the support of some of PADI’s finest Instructor Trainers?

Here at Blue Corner Dive we take the business of fun, seriously! With years of experience, Course Director Cody McDonald takes relaxed, hands on approach to teaching Instructor Candidates, he is ever present throughout each IDC and takes pride in teaching himself. With our motto of “A stress free IDC” always at heart, you will gain the most up-to-date style of teaching skills and confidence to take them out into the ocean.

Not only do our facilities boast state on the art boats and equipment, purpose built infinity training pool, private Air Conditioned classroom just for Instructor Candidates with a full reference library but all this is set on a white sand beach, facing sunset, with a gorgeous bar and restaurant and accommodation for all budgets right here on site. You will never need or want to leave! 

Our team of an award winning Course Director and 3 Master Instructors have decades of dive training experience shared between them and are here to help you during and after your IDC. Having made Instructors from every corner of the world we have developed methods of teaching that work for you, how ever that maybe. Providing bespoke teaching is what we do.

The PADI Instructor Development Course is comprised of 2 different components. The first portion is the AI (Assistant Instructor) program. The 2nd portion is the OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor) program. The IDC develops candidate's abilities to prepare academic, confined water, and open water teaching presentations. As a PADI Instructor candidate, you'll also learn about business principles, teaching children, risk management, and other important topics relevant for the dive professional. The IDC introduces you to the entire PADI System of diver education and concentrates on further developing your abilities as a professional dive educator. The challenging part of this course is your personal commitment to the training. The course requires you to prepare assignments for teaching presentations daily. Organization and dedication are key!

Our Instructor Development Course is conducted over 14 days of standard IDC plus an additional 3 FREE days of preparation, focussing on theory and skills circuits. We run 10 IDC sessions each year. The Program has a fixed curriculum but we offer flexible teaching styles and exceptional support before and after the conducted program. Below you can see the various sections needed to complete the IDC prior to attending the PADI Instructor Exams.

During the OWSI course you’ll learn how to apply the PADI System of Education by presenting;

  • Confined water teaching presentations
  • Knowledge development presentations in the classroom
  • Open water teaching presentations integrating two skills

You will demonstrate competence at;

  • Performing all  dive skills listed on the Skill Evaluation and revised open water course diver skills.
  • Performing a facedown, nonstop swim for 800 meters/yards using a mask, snorkel and fins.

During the course, you will need to demonstrate competency in Dive theory by passing a five-part theory exam scoring 75% on each part. Plus, an open book exam on PADI Standards and Procedures also with a passing score of 75%.

Upon becoming an Open Water Scuba Instructor, you will be able to conduct the entire range of PADI programs from Discover Scuba Diving up to Dive master. You may also choose to acquire specialty instructor ratings in areas of interest.

I did the IDC with blue corner Dive. The staff was perfect; friendly and professional. I had the best training to perform the exam. I got more than I expected.
I really enjoyed my time with you and now, I’m a Dive instructor !!!
