We have planned a Spring IDC/IDC Staff Instructor program for the greater Seattle area. We start on March 12, 2010 and we are using a weekend format for this IDC. That means we will be meeting on Friday at 3 pm- 9 pm, Saturday 8 am- 6 pm, Sunday 8 am - 6 pm, for two weekends. IDCs are open to all divers holding a Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor rating . Regardless of your original certifying agency we can help you obtain your goal. If you want to cross-over to PADI this is an excellent opportunity to become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
Seattle Underwater Sports is hosting the IDC as they are a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Facility. You will be participating in a PADI IDC, participation does not mean you are obligated to teach for UWS. But, we ask that you consider Underwater Sports for your professional development and career opportunities.
Keep in mind the IDC is a mandatory materials course, so you will need to have all of the materials listed in your PADI instructor manual. It is easiest if you have purchased the IDC crew pack. This crew pack will have all necessary materials, slates, textbooks, quizzes and exams.
The PADI OWSI program is an outstanding training program that is recognized world-wide for structure and the associated comprehensive programs (e.g. EFR Instructor, Specialty Instructor, Master Scuba Diver Trainer, and Distinctive Specialty Instructor). This program will afford you an opportunity to gain basic instructor level knowledge that will open doors for you throughout the world.
