become an open water dive instructor

Turning the dream into reality

There are many different environments that a PADI Instructor will encounter in the course of their career with many different challenges. The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) is designed to instruct you in how to lead divers and to teach others to dive and it is our intention at Dive Timor to help you not just pass the examinations but to achieve your ambition to becoming a successful PADI professional.

During the PADI Instructor Development course, you will learn about the PADI System of diver education, standards and procedures, effective academic teaching presentations, teaching in confined water, conducting open water training dives and other related topics. It also helps to further develop your leadership abilities to the instructor level and will ensure that you are able to effectively teach and organize PADI dive courses.

As a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor you can conduct the entire range of PADI experience programs and PADI dive courses, from PADI Open Water Diver through to PADI Divemaster but to teach Specialty courses and Emergency First Response courses, you will be required to undertake further training.

As a PADI Instructor, the world of diving opens into a whole new opportunity where you can show people how amazing it can be. It can all be yours once you GoPro with Dive Timor Lorosae.
