PADI Course Directors Scuba Cat Diving, Phuket, Thailand

When you think about the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) there is one component that is vital to your success – the PADI Course Director.


PADI Course Directors hold the highest and most respected professional rating in recreational scuba diving.  They are among the dive industry’s most influential leaders and role models. Those who join this elite group of professionals pass through a stringent screening process that examines their experience and training just to get into the competitive and demanding Course Director Training Course. After successful completion of this course they are the only people who can complete PADI Instructor Training Courses.
