Whether you’re sick, got COVID19, need to isolate, haven’t completed the PADI eLearning in time or can’t make the proposed course dates anymore, you can reschedule at any time before or during the course for any reason.
To reschedule, we will charge a rescheduling fee of $99. As soon as a course spot is booked, we reserve pool lanes and a company van, book in the instructor for all course dates and reserve the required gear and classrooms for your course. The rescheduling fee will be used to cover the costs.
The rescheduling fee only applies if we can’t find alternative dates for your course group. Usually we can simply reschedule one or two sessions to solve a short time issue like temporary sickness or a COVID19 case.
The theory for the PADI Instructor Development Course is delivered through PADI eLearning. The eLearning is included in the course fees.
You will have 2 sessions with your Course Director before the PADI IDC starts and you will need to complete the PADI IDC Staff Instructor eLearning.
The PADI Instructor Dvelopment Courses usually take approximately 9 days to run. Most of the time we run the sessions on evenings and weekends and the schedule is flexible. Before the course, you will meet with your Course Director and the other participants to discuss the schedule and make small changes where required.
The PADI Instructor Exam is normally run on a weekend and takes 2 full days. but as an IDC Staff Instructor Candidate, the IE is optional.
