Diving Tenerife ~ PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) Nov 2012

So Amarilla Divers was recently upgraded to a PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Resort YAY...this means we can now teach Divemasters of equivalent to become PADI Instructors. We can also run the PADI IDC Staff Instructor course too.

This is great news for us and for our Divemaster interns old and new :)

So over the last week we have had our very first PADI IDC here at Amarilla Divers.

We had our very own Platinum Course Director Mr Clive Albon here to conduct the course with the help of Master Instructor Neil :) We only had 3 Instructor candidates & 2 IDC Staff Instructor upgrades,  this time round, but this is an excellent start for our first one and helps us get the ropes a bit.

So the Instructor Candidates are Chris, Lucy & Nikki with Kornel & Tim the Staff Candidates

The IDC has gone very well and all the candidates have done an exceptional job and had some very high scores. The skill circuit was an excellent start and everyone got on well.

During the IDC the candidates are scoring well on every aspect of the course and they have to 'present' certain part to pass the course. With the Confined water, Open Water, knowledge Development, Rescue workshop & Skill circuit, the candidates have shone through on all levels.

They of course have been a little nervous, but this at times can strengthen your actions and makes you think a little more like an instructor.

With each passing day all candidates have shown improvement in their own abilities as well as in their teaching skills and are learning from every part of this course.

It is great to see a happy bunch of guys.

Our next PADI IDC starts on 26th May 2013. Contact mary@amarilladivers.com for more details.
