It's not just OUR love affair with ASIA that has seen OUR living in this region for over the last decade. One of great things I enjoy about training PADI Instructors in our IDC at DIVING CLUB and offering other courses through DIVING CLUB is the atmosphere, high standard and internship programs that we have designed in order to get you off to the best start as a PADI Instructor throughout ASIA destinations and around the world. Whilst you can be assured you'll love your IDC and we will get you to pass the IE we prefer not to use this as a benchmark of your success, instead we will work with you as a PADI Instructor, beyond the standard PADI IDC, to see that you have the most success youcan enjoy and gest the most from this amazing lifestyle!

If you tlak to our IDC candidates from a few years ago you'll find that many have enjoyed success as dive Instructors, resort managers, live abroad operators and some are even Course Directors themselves just to assess our IDC, come and find out why ? !!!

Our Course Director : Cedric Verdier with 17 years experience. Cedric Verdier speak fluently English, French, Spanish and German. As an Instructor Trainer and Instructor Examiner for most of the dive training agencies, Cedric Verdier have trained more than 1500 Instructors all over Europe and South-East Asia.

During this course, instructor candidates review PADI Standards, procedures, philosophies and teaching methods as well as hone their practical teaching ability, watermanship, and diving knowledge. PADI Instructor development has two phases – a training phase and an evaluation phase. Completion of the training phase may be met by taking a complete Instructor Development Course (IDC) The PADI Instructor Examination (IE) is the evaluation phase of the PADI Instructor development process. Instructor candidates who have successfully completed an IDC may enroll in a PADI IE. To be certified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, an individual must successfully complete a PADI IE conducted by a PADI Instructor Examiner.


We realize that choosing a top quality IDC with confidence is not easy. Our IDC classes are small. Our IDC takes 12 days allowing extra time to carefully prepare for the IE and have FUN. Nha Trang offers fantastic sites: with over 350 different species of coral, also various and rich underwater.

After the IDC?

After successfully completing a PADI Instructor Examination (IE 2 days), OWSIs take responsibility for introducing people to scuba diving through various PADI programs and courses. PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors may conduct the entire range of PADI programs from Discover Scuba Diving up to Divemaster (except for specialties which require specific Specialty Instructor ratings). We can help you to find a job in Asia or somewhere around the word.
