PADI Instructor Development Course, Bali, Indonesia

PADI Instructor Development Course

Our goal at Crystal Divers Bali is to teach you the knowledge, skills and confidence to be the best, most up to date instructor in the world. We don’t teach to pass an Instructor Exam, we prepare you for real life teaching environments. The PADI Instructor Development Course starts by gives you a foundation overview of the dive industry including topics on marketing, risk management, business of diving and learning and the PADI system to name a few. We can teach all our Internships in English, Spanish, German, Dutch, Danish and Indonesian.

We then work on developing your teaching style and you will put into practice developing a realistic classroom presentation from all levels in the PADI system. We will also work on how to teach student divers in a confined water (pool) environment. Our huge training pool makes this a fun and important part of developing your skills to teach both entry level and continuing education dive skills in a pool. Finally we develop your ability and control and supervise students in a real open water environment. Ensuring mastery at all levels in role playing environment that teaches real world “thinking like an instructor” mentality.

We take an in depth look at each of the PADI courses you will be able to teach once certified and do workshops in each of these courses to ensure a full understanding of how to conduct and pass on knowledge to student divers. Using the most modern teaching techniques we place a large focus on teaching dive skills with a focus on neutral buoyancy from day one.


The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) is split up into two components. The first portion is the Assistant Instructor (AI) course, followed by the Open Water Scuba Instructor program (OWSI). These courses can be taken separately but are normally combined as the IDC, followed by an Instructor Examination (IE) where PADI checks that you have mastered the knowledge and skills to become an instructor.

When you have successfully completed the IDC+IE, you will be certified to teach the world to dive using the PADI system
