Your way to become PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI)

PADI IDC in TenerifeThe training to PADI Instructor starts always with an IDC (Instructor Development Course) - the preparation for PADI Instructor and an IE (Instructor Examination) - the exam for PADI Instructor.

The IDC and the IE do not have to take place in the same place or at the same time. Me myself for example had my IDC here in Tenerife while my IE took place 4 weeks later in Lanzarote.

As it is better for planning, easier and less expensive we do plan our IDCs always at times when there will be an IE here in Tenerife. As mentioned before, you decide where you sign in for your IE and when you like to take the exam, but we recommend to do this asap after your IDC. 

PADI IDC Open Water Training in TenerifeWe offer a nice and quiet lerning atmosphere to our IDC candidates. For classroom presentations we have a seperate seminar room equipped with modern multimedia equipment and WIFI. Skills will be practised in our heated training pool in the hotel Maritim. For open water skills and dives we may use beaches on both sides of the island, this way we are independet to sea conditions. The water temperature is between 18°C to 25°C depending on season. The incredible variety of fishes of the Canary Islands make even the training dives interesting.

For accommodation and boarding we have the hotel MARITIM**** with all of it's installations available. On request we may also offer cheap accommodation in other places, which then will unfortunately not be directly next to the dive centre.


IDC - Instructor Development Course

IDC - Instructor Development Course - from Divemaster to PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor

PADI IDC Open Water presentationFirst you need to attend an Instructor Development Course (IDC).

In 12 days you will learn to teach and to act as a PADI Instructor in theory and in practise and which standards you need to follow.

This course is totally different to all courses you have done before. It is not about diving, it is about teaching diving. In the seminars you learn how to conduct theory lessons as an instructor.

In the pool you will practise to present your PADI skills in a perfect and exemplary way and how to instruct your students.

In the sea you will practise how to teach the different skills from Open Water to Divemaster safely and correct and how to control your students while doing these skills. Possible errors and risks will be simulated constantly so you learn how to detect and to avoid them later in your courses.

The IDC consits of 2 parts.

The first part contains the PADI Assistant Instructor training, this part lasts 4 days. If you are already PADI Assistant Instructor you do not need to participate in this part. 

The second part contains the training towards PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, this part lasts 8 days.

The IDC course days begin early in the morning and will last until late evening. There will be no free days. The IDC Program is packed with lessons and training, finally it's a complete job training !!! Therefore it is not recommendable to bring husband, wife, kids or friends to this course.

Participation in the complete IDC costs 1000 €
