Distance Learning  Preparation Course

This is a very popular course! Over the past 10 years almost every single candidate has taken advantage of this program.
The reason why it’s so popular is because as soon as you sign up, we can start with the Distance Learning part of the course. We can start right now! I’ll send you a series of 10 mock exams. 5 theory and 5 standards. Each exam will have the same format and the same content to the exams that you’ll find on your final PADI Instructor Exam. One by one you can send me your Exam answer papers and I’ll give you lots of tips on how to improve.
I’ll also give advice on how to prepare for skills demonstrations and how to organise your laptop/tablet for your IDC.

Anything more?

You’ll need some materials. You’ll need an IDC Crew Pack.  You can buy one from any dive centre, but please make sure that you get the most up to date version! PADI have just updated the Open Water course and the new IDC Crew Packs have a lot of the new materials.
You’ll need a medical certificate signed by a medical doctor within the past 12 months. The certificate must state that you’re fit to dive and have no restrictions.
You’ll also need an EFR instructor manual, or an EFR pack if you are doing the EFR instructor course.
Please contact me if you have having problems finding a PADI IDC Crew Pack. If you live in the UK, I can arrange for PADI to send you a pack to your home address. Otherwise I can arrange for a pack to be waiting for you at the start of your course.
