Marmaris Diving Centre IDC

Have you ever thought of leaving your office behind? Do you have a passion for the sea? Do you want to live an extraordinary life? If you can say yes to all of these then it is time to take a giant stride and dive in all the way.

The final step to become a Dive Instructor is to complete the PADI’s Dive Instructor Development Course (IDC) with Marmaris Diving Center. During the PADI IDC with us you will learn how to use and adapt the PADI systems to meet your student diver’s individual needs. You will learn the best techniques and we will share real life teaching tips with you so that you are more than ready for the Instructor Exam (IE)

The IDC is a two part course – the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) course. Most students complete the full IDC program and go on and attend the Instructor Examination (IE) which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification. Additionally, we also offer the Emergency First Responder Instructor course that covers Primary Care, Secondary Care and Care for Children, this is compulsory for becoming an PADI Instructor.

The IDC will be given by PADI Course Director Ozan Aytac. You will get the best individual attention you need to become an excellent PADI professional. Ozan Aytac created an IDC program that goes well beyond the minimum standards. You will receive extra lessons, more topics, real life examples and training to ensure you will have a fantastic career in the Dive Industry.
