IDC Guide

Australia Brisbane IDC

Here is some sample info you will receive from our Australian IDC.

The PADI Instructor Development Course is the penultimate step in becoming a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. It is a big step deciding to become an Instructor and it is going to be an exhilarating ride, both challenging and rewarding.

We are the premiere 5 Star Instructor Development Centre and the only Tec Rec Centre in South East Queensland and 1 of only 5 in Australia. With the region’s most experienced and awarded PADI Course Director and Tec Rec Instructor trainer the choice is simple.

Our program is so successful that other dive centres have even tried to copy it, but it has never been surpassed. Our philosophy is that our students are a direct reflection of their instructor. We also have 4 IDC Staff Instructors on hand to assist with professional development training ensuring that you get nothing but the best.

Brisbane’s diving is some of the most diverse and beautiful that I have ever seen, and having traveled to some exotic and not so exotic locations it is pretty impressive. Checkout our Facebook page for a look at some of our diving.

Our training facilities are modern, fresh and up to date, we won’t have you sitting in the middle of a dimly lit shop on plastic chairs. Our classroom is setup with its own dedicated networked computer and monitor and you will have free Wi-Fi access for the duration of your course. Great for updating your Facebook status to tell all your friends how much of a great time you are having.
