What you’ll learn on a PADI IDC
Student divers are changing! Today modern technology has caused a widespread condition called “Digital Dementia”. It prevents most of us give appropriate attention and focus to things. Today’s student divers need PADI Instructors to allow them to learn in a fun way and using their own individual learning styles. That’s in the classroom, pool and in Open Water The old fashioned “Dinosaur” methods are way out of date! The PADI Open Water course changed in summer of 2014. It has been designed to produce more confident and independent divers. However, unless PADI Instructors update their own teaching methods, we’ll see no change in new diver ability.
