Instructor Development Course


While learning how to pass the PADI Instructor Exam (IE) is important, it’s more important to learn how to be an effective and compassionate instructor. Our Instructor Development Course is taught by our PADI Course Director, Peter Hughes. Running 13 days, with 2 additional days of prep, we teach you the art of how to successfully guide your students to reach their goals as either new divers or as divers furthering their education. Each day runs from 9am-4pm with a break for lunch. You will learn how to take PADI’s guided approach to teaching both in and out of the water and expand upon that further with the help of Peter and Roatan Divers’ experienced PADI IDC-Staff Instructors for assistance.

Our next IDC will be from november 9th to november 22nd, with the Instructor Exam taking place on Roatan on November 23rd and 24th.
