PADI IDC Instructor Development Course dates

Our PADI IDC instructor development course dates at PADI 5* IDDR Resort ‘Thresher Cove Resort’ can be found here.

Wake up, eat breakfast, dive, morning tea, dive, lunch, sleep. Dive, afternoon tea, enjoy a beer with another beautiful sunset, dinner, some small talk about the days diving, and sleep again … very stressful.

However, this is exactly what you can have during your PADI IDC. Come and see for yourself at our PADI 5* IDDR Resort on Malapascua.
