IDC Guide

IDC Guide is now 2 years old

The site has grown to be the number one resource for the PADI Divemaster and PADI IDC and has been recognised by some of the worlds leading Course Directors who have updated and improved the website and dive theory notes. The search engines (Google, Yahoo and Bing) also recognise that this website is a good resource and have now rewarded it with high rankings for many important terms for students wanting to know about the PADI IDC / Dive Theory and exams.

We recommend that you review the revision notes on this website to help you prepare for the PADI Divemaster and Instructor (IDC) exams and ultimately the PADI Instructor Examinations (IE) These same revision pages can also be used by Master Scuba Diver Trainers (MSDT) for their Staff Instructor Course. We have produced a comprehensive PADI DM and IDC revision guide on DVD that can be shipped to you anywhere in the world.

I recommend you review all the the material you have to buy for your Divemaster and IDC courses as this will be invaluable for you as a tool to achieve mastery in the theory subjects above, I suggest completing the Diving Knowledge Workbook and if you are interested or want to know more about a subject then cross reference it in the Encyclopaedia of Recreational Diving. You can also re-do the open water / rescue / divemaster quizzes and exams (you will need to get he exam pack as part of your IDC required materials pack) as a final check before you begin your course Complete the PADI Instructor Pre-assessment Exam in the Instructor Candidate Workbook. Complete this exam on your own without reference so you can identify any weak areas that may need extra revision before the start of your course.

If you are an enriched air diver (Nitrox) there is also an enriched air section that allows you to brush up on the theory if you did your course some time ago, its worth noting that most IDC schedules now let you include Enriched Air (or Enriched Air Instructor) courses within them, this is an invaluable extra as Enriched Air along with Digital Underwater Photography seem to be the most in demand specialities at the moment.
