PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Course in Canberra

The next course start date:  26th November 2022

Our IDC runs over 11 days, providing you with plenty of opportunity to become a scuba instructor with a relaxed pace. It introduces you to the entire PADI System of diver education and concentrates on further developing your abilities as a professional dive educator.

The Fun Part

It’s about life transformations—both yours and those around you.

The fun part of instructor training is interacting with course participants while creating friendships that continue long after the course concludes.

You’ll begin networking with other professionals and begin to explore 'PADI Pro Diving Jobs worldwide'. You’ll also have the opportunity to continue your professional education by participating in specialty instructor courses, which train you to teach specialties after instructor certification.

As a matter of fact, we feel so strongly about this last part that we’ve included an optional 3 day Master Scuba Diver Prep program, giving you 5 Specialty instructor ratings.

The Challenging Part

The challenging part of this course is your personal commitment to the training. The course requires you to complete all the self-study Knowledge Reviews before the course begins and to prepare daily assignments for teaching presentations in the classroom, pool and open water.  Organization skills and dedication are key.

The Scuba Gear

You will need to equip yourself with all the basic scuba gear.

Check with Indepth Scuba for a great deal on gear needed for your IDC.

This is just the beginning.....

As a PADI Scuba Instructor, you can progress with us through to PADI Master Instructor.
