These are the PADI IDC & IE Dates for 2021. We will be running the Instructor Courses (IDC) to coinside with the Instructor Exams (IE). This ensures all the information gained during your Instructor course stays fresh, so you will feel well prepared and able to achieve the best results during your Instructor exams.
Kindly note that as from 2020 there have been quite a few changes made to the PADI Instructor course. The main one being that all the theory for the IDC is now completed online prior to the actual course. This course is no longer book based.
You therefore need to be sure to allow time to allow you to complete all the theory for the Instructor course prior to starting the IDC.
Another main change is that Payment for the PADI Instructor Exam now needs to be effected 2 weeks prior to the Exam date.
