Why prepare for Dive Theory and PADI Standards?

PADI Standards change every year.

Your IDC and IE will be based on the latest version of the PADI Instructor Manual.

Your practice papers need to be right up to date!


PADI theory questions change too. Over the last two years, the questions have changed dramatically.

Make sure that you’re revising the current content! 

See the IDC Theory Preparation Course below.

PADI IDC Preparation for Teaching in Confined Water and Classroom

IDC stands for Instructor Development Course. 

In other words, the IDC is NOT ONLY preparing you for the Instructor Exam, but also for you to develop into a great PADI Instructor in the real world. 

You can prepare by finding out exactly what (and why!) a confined water lesson consists of.

You can also prepare by learning the psychology behind the classroom teaching structure. 

The more you know, the better your chances of passing your PADI IDC/IE and of being a successful PADI instructor

See the PADI IDC  Teaching in class and pool course below.

How do I prepare for a PADI IDC?

There are a couple of online courses that are perfect for your PADI IDC Preparation. – Well three courses actually!! 
One is designed to help you prepare you for your PADI IDC theory exams, another is great preparation to teaching in the pool and classroom. 
The third is the best! It’s the Complete Preparation course that covers both of the other courses. 

PADI IDC Theory Preparation Course


It’s a good idea for you to answer sample practice questions! LOTS of them! 

Answering questions correctly develops your confidence. 

The opposite happens when you get the answers wrong! 

So, I’ve developed an online course with so many videos to help you fully understand the subjects. 

Not only will you have over 700 questions to practice with, but videos explaining every single subject. 

I explain the subjects in a way to avoid the “Jargon” that often confuses people. 

You’ll see that I don’t explain in the same way that PADI does. 

I try to make it simpler!
