Here's a detailed description of our PADI Instructor Package:

Introduction

Life as Dive Instructor can be a very rewarding and challenging job, and of course extremely enjoyable one too. As well as being able to introduce others to the amazing underwater world not just here in Koh Tao, Thailand but the rest of the world, there are also many new opportunities arising for Dive Instructors all over the world.

The DJL Diving Instructor Development Course (IDC) aims to prepare new instructors to meet and take advantage of those opportunities. The program is conducted by experienced PADI Course Director Peter Nieuwhof.

Our IDC on Koh Tao follows a proven educational approach which focuses on real-life application of knowledge gained throughout the course. Business principles, marketing strategies and how to increase earnings through Instructor-level continuing education programs, are all addressed and discussed throughout the program and will be valuable and relevant all around the world not just here on Koh Tao or in Thailand.

Instructor Training Schedule

The DJL Diving PADI IDC schedule is conducted over 14 days(including the 2 day prep course and mock exam) and including free lunch at one of the best restaurants on Koh Tao, our very own dive school Pool Bar & Restaurant!! Peter basis his training schedule around you after, he does this by following his own tried and proven methods.
  • Firstly all candidates attending the IDC will begin with a 2-day preparation course which will allow Peter to shore up any lost or unclear Divemaster theory and work on skills training in our on-site confined water training facility. If there are any gaps in your knowledge this preparation course will allow Peter to identify these and then give extra focus to these areas during the IDC.
  • This will be followed by an 12-day AI/OWSI program which will include one day for EFR Instructor training. Most days are split pretty evenly between water work and classroom time.
  • Rather than condensing all the info into the minimum possible timsescale, we opt for shorter days [finishing between 4 - 5 pm].
  • We feel that the shorter days [spread over a longer period] allow for an enhanced retention of the material covered.
  • The last 2 days before the PADI IE we will conduct a mock IE on our premises. This is just a chance to build confidence and prove your readiness on the days before you progress to the IE.
  • We guarentee success in the PADI Instructor exam. If you don't pass, you can take the next IDC for free.

Once you qualify as a PADI Instructor ....

  • Once you've qualified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, you have the option to stick around and teach your first few certifications here on Koh Tao at DJL Diving.
  • You'll get the chance to build up teaching experience plus if you opt to do the Silver, Gold or Platinum IDC packages you can get certified as a PADI Master Scuba Diver Traininer [MSDT], enabling you to teach specialty courses [e.g. deep, enriched air, navigation etc].
