IDC Koh Tao @ Crystal Dive Resort offers the full PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC), giving you the chance to enter into the dive industry as a qualified scuba diving instructor!


Our newly built 5 Star IDC facilities on the beachfront at Mae Haad is the perfect place to confidently take the final step towards the career of your choice.


As you complete your Divemaster & Asst.Instructor Courses it's time to prepare for your IDC with Matt. Working within the dive industry is one of the most rewarding careers, offering opportunities to meet new people and work all over the world!


Matt's IDC's guide you through at a pace that suits you and he is always on hand to offer help and advice. As we enter into the high season, we are now taking bookings for placements on our IDC's scheduled for this year.


The IDC is "split" into two sections. The Assistant Instructor course (A.I) scheduled over the first 4 days introduces teaching techniques for skill and knowledge development.


The course concentrates on duties and programs AIs may conduct independently. Successfully completing this course earns an AI certification and qualifies the AI to continue on to an OWSI program in the future.


The OWSI program, scheduled over 6 days introduces you to the entire PADI System and focuses on further developing your abilities as a professional dive educator.


PADI Assistant Instructors as well as instructors from other dive training organizations who want to become PADI Instructors must complete this program.


Successfully completing this program qualifies candidates to attend a PADI Instructor Examination (I.E).
