For us it is important, that you become a good instructor, not just pass your Instructor Course and Exam. But how can we achieve it?
Before you start your PADI Instructor course, we give you the option to come and get more experience as a Divemaster. Depending on your schedule, you can come for few weeks, and work with our professional Instructor team. This includes assisting on courses, go out with divers. We include skill circuits and dive theory workshops, so you will feel ready to roll on the IDC!
If you just recently finished your Divemaster course and feel ready, you don’t have to take this time before your IDC. We also had people who are residing in Malta, who took days on weekends or on their days off, we are flexible with timings. The offer stands naturally for the time after you have finished the IE and became a PADI Open Water Instructor! Tag along on running courses with real students, team teach with one of our instructors who can guide you to get the hang of teaching in real life.
What would this cost you? Only your time and effort! As we said before, it is important to us, that you become a good instructor.
Once you became PADI OWSI you can teach from Discover Scuba diving up to Divemaster. However if you are interested in other courses like Deep, Wreck, Enriched Air specialities, take the MSDT preparation together with your IDC. Takes a few days after the IE (Instructor Exam) where you can choose from 5
DPV, Sidemount, Gas Blender, Naturalist, Navigation, whichever you are interested for!
Taking speciality courses with a CD reduces the PADI fees by 50%, compared to if you directly apply to PADI.
Besides the course cost you will need to count with the PADI application fees as follows:
These fees are going directly to PADI.
