“Your teaching is dynamic and full of energy. It is also fun for your students” – Katrina, Sheffield

How can I start RIGHT NOW?

Ocean View PADI IDC
Included in the price of the course is the PADI IDC online program. This allows you to study at your own pace before your IDC starts. There are nine interactive knowledge development sections.
We can then spend lots more time developing your skills that will make you a VERY popular PADI Instructor.

For an extra cost of £125.00 You and PADI course director Steve Prior can work together with my Distance Learning Program  to get you right up to speed with Dive Theory and Dive Standards.
Dive Theory is the most common area that causes problems on a PADI IDC, so let’s put that to bed while we still have time. Steve will help you improve your knowledge by using 10 mock exams, 5 theory and 5 standards, each exam will have the same format and the same content as the exams that you’ll find on your final Instructor Exam. Steve will help by giving feedback, often using video clips especially created for this program.

Where will the course be held?

Ocean View PADI IDC

The course will be held at Scuba Dream based at 8 Acre Lake, North Cave, Yorkshire.
