Are you looking for something others can only dream of? Helping people transform their lives? To open doors you didn’t even know existed? All of this, and more, awaits you as a PADI Instructor.
At Coral Grand Divers, we believe in the highest level of diver standards and training for all our diver courses. Our Course Director and his team will give you the best tools to participate in your PADI Instructor Development Course. Beyond the preparation and the success of your Instructor Examination, this is the beginning of your new life and career. 
The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC), the core of PADI Instructor training is made of 2 components, the Assistant Instructor course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor course. The IDC emphasizes development, not testing in a low-stress environment. Candidates develop their instructor-level knowledge and skill in the IDC through independent study as well as live presentations and workshops conducted or supervised by the Course Director. 2 days in the program are dedicated to the EFR Instructor Training.
After completion of the IDC, you will move to the Instructor Examination, a 2 days program run by the PADI examiners. You will be tested on academic presentations, confined and open water presentations and your knowledge of diving and PADI standards.
After becoming an Open Water Scuba Instructor, you will be able to conduct the entire range of PADI programs from Discover Scuba Diving up to Divemaster. You may also choose to acquire specialty instructor ratings in areas of interest, such as Deep Diver or Enriched Air Diver…
