PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) – Kota Kinabalu – UPDATE !!

PADI IDC - Instructor Development Course (IDC) Update - Kota Kinabalu Sabah

IDC is in full swing with all six candidates working hard until late at night.

This is a particularly challenging course for the staff team (Richard Joseph and Susan along with James on IDC Staff Instructor Course) as we have two Malay and three Chinese candidates that all require translation even in the IE.

IE is just around the corner so keep up the good work guys & Roy please try to stay away (poor mite) !

Our candidates are now Assistant Instructors and with the last few days to go the pressure is increasing.

During the PADI Instructor Development Course (AI & OWSI which forms the IDC), candidates learn how to teach the PADI System of Diver Education through classroom and in water instructional sessions.

The course director and staff instructors who conduct the course teach and assess the candidates during the practical sessions, preparing them for the final Instructor Examination held by PADI at the end of the course.

At Downbelow we don’t outsource our IDC’s we teach them in-house using our own facilities.

Only PADI 5 Star IDC Centers and CDC Centers can conduct IDC’s.

PADI IDC – Instructor Development Course (IDC) Update – Kota Kinabalu Sabah

Courses were Excellent & Managed Professionally

Hi Gerry,

I just got back to grey, cold and rainy Stockholm and already miss Borneo and my wonderful long sunny days and diving adventures among the turtles, sharks and nudibranchs.

I wanted to thank you warmly for successfully arranging so many parts of my stay that turned out to be well beyond my expectations.

The two courses were excellent and managed very professionally. Downbelow’s staff is really warm and friendly and makes visitors feel comfortable. I will definitely visit you again, hopefully sooner rather than later!

I hope you are well and enjoying life. Give my best to everyone.

Take care,

Charles Silva
