The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is a program that prepares qualified PADI Divemasters and Assistant Instructors to become PADI Instructors. It also prepares you for the two day Instructor Exam (IE), which is usually conducted immediately after the IDC. The IDC is an intensive 8-day program involving classroom, confined water and open water training. Qualified Assistant Instructors from other training agencies will be able to take the shorter Open Water Scuba Instructor Course (OWSI)

The Dive Instructor Training Course takes place in Christiansted, St. Coix, the largest and most beautiful of the United States Virgin Islands. The classroom and confined water segments of the class take place conveniently in Christiansted, and the open water segments take place in the blue Caribbean sea. St. Croix has some spectacular diving with walls, reefs, and wrecks. It is a great place to dive and a great place to complete instructor training. The water temperature averages 81 degrees all year round.
