Instructor Development Course

PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor

If you like people, have a passion for scuba diving and want an extraordinary life - become a PADI Instructor. Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy - being in, around and under water. PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors and PADI Assistant Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they've completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals.

The IDC, taught at DiveMania Scuba, is designed specifically to be all about you. We have a highly experienced team of instructors who are ready and waiting to share their knowledge and help you be the best you can be. 

Your training will take place at our classroom in Romford, during our pool sessions at Blackshots Leisure Centre, remotely on zoom sessions if convenient, and at an open water site such as Stoney Cove or a more local lake in Kent. You will be involved from the very beginning regarding the course schedule as we want to make sure that you are confident not only with the diving skills you already have, but those you will learn and develop more throughout your instructor training. 

If you are already an Assistant Instructor and have the current set of required IDC materials, deduct £725 from each of the package prices below.
