IDC PREPARATION COURSE

 

If it has been a while since your Divemaster, or you are crossing over from another organisation, this will be of benefit to you, as there is no time allocated on the IDC to go through theory. We will go through Instructor level theory and make sure you are up to scratch.  Then we jump in the water to check that your skills are up to the standard expected on an Instructor course, and if necessary we will fine tune your skills. This can be completed the day before the start of the IDC.

 

Pre-requisites - Divemaster or equivalent, or Instructor from another organisation.

 

Minimum Age - 18 years old

 

Duration - 1 day 

 

What does this enable me to do? Be fully prepared for the start of the Instructor Development Course.

 

Price -  €100.00
