In 2009, WaterColors Boracay Diving Adventures ran its first PADI Instructor Development Course (“IDC”) with great success.

WaterColors has been open since 1998 and with the experience of the owners, Ethel and Martin, it has gained a great reputation as a PADI dive centre in Boracay and the Philippines, from PADI 5* Dive Resort status, rising to the prestigious PADI 5* Instructor Development Resort status.  PADI Open Water SCUBA Instructor (“OWSI”), complete IDC and IDC Staff Instructor courses are only ever permitted to be run at PADI 5* Instructor Development Resorts and 5* Instructor Development Centres.

We are delighted that WaterColors Boracay Dive Resort also received the 2014 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award for a collection of complimentary reviews from our guests and divers not only for the resort accommodation but equally for our SCUBA diving services.

 

Why Boracay and WaterColors?

The Philippines is now well and truly on the dive map.  With many of its marine areas still unexplored, it is an exciting and challenging place to dive and has something to offer to all levels from novice to expert.  The Philippines offers a cross-section of diving with caverns, caves, wrecks, reefs, muck diving and a vast array of marine life.

With undeveloped tropical islands to explore, dive and rest on after the IDC, Boracay is an ideal place to take your dive career to the next level.  Boracay offers a variety of activities other than diving; unusually, it also has some of the best competition kitesurfing and windsurfing in Asia.  White Beach is widely-regarded as one of the most picturesque beaches in the World.  This island paradise has good Wi-Fi connectivity and offers a variety of international cuisine and exciting nightlife (not too close to us).  Boracay is conveniently served by two airports, close-by on the island of Panay, meaning you will have from 15 minutes by road, followed by a 15-minute boat trip.

Why WaterColors?  Many divers and past Divemasters (now Instructors) believe we are the Island’s best, friendliest and most relaxed dive centre and we do pride ourselves on maintaining our reputation.  We are here to help you have fun and to become PADI Pros (DMs and Instructors) through PADI’s solid educational system (at least 70 percent of the World’s divers learn with PADI and this percentage is around 80 in Asia).

What is a PADI IDC?

An IDC teaches you basic SCUBA instructional techniques and also how to use the PADI System of Diver Education successfully.

The PADI IDC is in two parts, the Assistant Instructor (“AI”) part and the OWSI phase.  These can be taken separately but are more often than not done together.  The courses show you how to structure and present your diving knowledge and skills in a fun and structured format using a classroom (academic prescriptive knowledge development), a pool or confined open water (confined water) and in the sea (open water) as well as ensuring your understanding of the PADI Systems, Standards and Procedures (“SSP”) that we all use.

 

PADI AI

The AI Course is a minimum of 2–4 days where you will be introduced to basic teaching techniques and to teaching diving skills.  You will learn how to demonstrate and teach skills from the PADI Open Water Diver Course in confined water and you will learn how to teach in the classroom where you present short "prescriptive" sessions.  You will also be trained how to teach and control both open water students and those taking continuing education courses in open water.  As in the PADI Divemaster Course, you will again demonstrate Exercise 7 from the PADI Rescue Diver Course, further honing your skills towards instructor-level.  You will be introduced to the various courses and programmes an AI can teach.

 

PADI IDC Online

Do part of your PADI IDC online for approximately 7–8 hours and save about two days in the classroom!

For those of you with little annual leave, PADI eLearning can help you prepare for the IDC in general terms, although there is absolutely no substitute for the practical hands on sessions that you will go through.

You may choose to complete part of the IDC in English, Japanese or Spanish via PADI eLearning. You can start right now!  The 2014 price is $346 to be paid by you direct to PADI when you sign up on the PADI website.  You must affiliate with our Store number S-6775.  The online portion of the course covers nine topics that prepare you for the practical sessions needed to complete your AI or OWSI Course.  Once you finish the eLearning, WaterColors is notified that you have completed it and that you are ready for the practical phase of the course.

At the end of the eLearning programme, please remember to print out your eLearning record and bring that with you at the start of your IDC at WaterColors.

 

PADI OWSI

The OWSI Course takes a minimum of another 3–5 days, during which time you will refine many of the skills and lessons learned on the AI phase.  You will be asked to demonstrate more water skills at teaching levels both in confined and open water sessions.  Your demonstrations of Rescue Exercise 7, both mouth-to-mouth and pocket mask, will be refined and you will back in the classroom, giving at least one more knowledge development presentation.

Your PADI Course Director Dan Robinson is always willing and on hand for offering "hints, tips and suggestions" to improve as and where necessary.  This begins from the moment you first e-mail him.  Equally the rest of the staff that work here at WaterColors are always willing to help, for example with pre-IDC courses, equipment, logistics, budgets, etc..  We are a great team after all and operate on a politically flat structure.

By the end of your complete IDC (AI and OWSI phases) you will be ready to sit your PADI Instructor Examination (“IE") and join the ranks of the World’s finest dive educators.  Dan is most pleased to have a 100 per cent. first-time pass rate at the IE with no make-ups.  If you were to fail your first IE, you may attend necessary remedial sessions free of charge, but PADI will charge you AUD 320 per segment.

It is not possible to become a PADI Instructor without successfully completing both a PADI OWSI Course and a PADI IE.

STRONGLY URGED
Emergency First Response and Care for Children Instructor (“EFRI”)

The EFRI Course certifies you to teach the EFR Primary and Secondary Care Courses, including Care for Children.  Unless you can prove you are already a current instructor with another agency for both Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (“CPR”) and First Aid, there is no way you can forgo the EFRI course or PADI will not process your Instructor Application.  The EFRI Course lasts for one day and is scheduled during your IDC.  To enrol on the EFRI Course, you must have proof of student level CPR and first aid training within two years of the date of your EFRI Application, otherwise PADI will not process it.  This is usually achieved by having both Primary and Secondary Care EFR.  N.B.:  If you have Primary Care (CPR) only, without Secondary Care (First Aid), then PADI will process neither your EFRI Application nor your PADI Instructor Application.  The total 2014 PADI Application Fees for both EFRI ratings is AUD 144.  The EFRI Manual comes in three parts (Primary & Secondary Care; CPR & AED Guide: and Care for Children).

 

Speciality Instructor Training Courses

These programmes enable you to conduct a variety of Speciality Diver Courses (c.30 to choose from) that interest you and therefore you can offer more to your students, employers and potential employers.  All PADI Assistant Instructors may teach the following three PADI standardised specialities:  Peak Performance Buoyancy, Project AWARE and AWARE Coral Reef Conservation.  All PADI Open Water SCUBA Instructors may teach c.15 of the Adventure Dives from the Adventures in Diving Programme.  Each of these is the first dive of the corresponding standardised speciality.  However, to teach the rest of these specialities or any of the others, you must first hold that speciality instructor rating.  The instructor courses give you valuable teaching and marketing tips as well as hands on, in-water skills that you can take to your own students.  Plus, as an added bonus, if you decide to take a Speciality Instructor Course, you will be eligible to teach that particular course yourself immediately on your application to PADI being approved.  Otherwise you would have to wait and teach 25 courses to any level before you could apply to teach that Speciality.  Your one-off PADI Application Fees are also lower if you do a course with Dan.  In 2014, these are AUD 83 each, rather than AUD 113–224.  If you take five of these courses at the same time in the Philippines with Dan and apply on the same form, PADI will only charge you for four.  Your annual PADI fees do not increase with the number of specialities you may teach or whether you are Master SCUBA Diver Trainer, IDC Staff Instructor or Master Instructor.  So it makes sense to do the Speciality Instructor Courses as that way you can earn your money back quicker while teaching a broader variety of courses, rather than simply those on the main spine, which can cause “burn-out”.

 

Master Scuba Diver Trainer Prep (“MSDT”)

The MSDT programme is a minimum of five Speciality Instructor certifications that you earn as an OWSI and can therefore teach those five extra Speciality Courses to your own students.  This gains you a solid reputation within the dive industry, gives you more earning power and makes you far more employable because of your skills and expertise.  One of the most widely used sources of diving jobs on the Internet is the Employment Board on the PADI Pros website and the majority of positions advertised thereon require MSDT as a minimum.  You must first be an MSDT before you start the IDC Staff Instructor Course.  Probably the most sought after Specialties here on Boracay (and indeed elsewhere) are Deep, Wreck, Emergency Oxygen Provider, Enriched Air NitrOx (EANx), Digital Underwater Photographer, Underwater Naturalist and Night Diver.  Amongst other ratings, Dan is a PADI Cavern Instructor Trainer and Self-Reliant IT (solo diving).

 

PADI IE

You may only enrol at an IE if you have successfully passed an IDC or OWSI programme within the last 12 months.  These are conducted over two days by PADI Instructor Examiners, who are PADI Course Directors employed by PADI.  Examiners may no longer work as Course Directors in the regions where they examine.

You pay PADI directly for your IE by credit card at the start of your exam.  The 2014 PADI IE Fee is AUD 760 and includes all four segments:  multi-choice written examinations; prescriptive academic knowledge development classroom presentation; confined water teaching presentation including mini skill circuit; and open water teaching presentation including Rescue Exercise 7.  The 2014 PADI Instructor Application Fee is a further AUD 212.  Your IE Fee (AUD 760), Instructor Application Fee (AUD 212) and PADI EFRI Application Fee (AUD 144) total AUD 1,116.  These are not part of your IDC fees, which are paid to WaterColors.

Written examinations comprise Dive Theory and SSP.  Dive Theory has 12 questions in each of five topics:  Physics; Physiology; Decompression Theory and the PADI DSAT Recreational Dive Planner (“RDP”); Equipment; and Skills and Environment.  You must achieve at least 75 per cent in each topic, so may only make a maximum of three mistakes in each batch of 12 questions.  You will have 90 minutes to use as you need in this closed-book examination, with another 45 minutes if it is not available in your mother tongue (e.g. Tagalog) or if you have a documented learning disability.  You will need a non-programmable calculator (not telephone, tablet or laptop) and originals of both versions of the RDP—table and electronic multilevel RDP (eRDPml), together with original hard versions of both sets of Instructions for Use.  In the unlikely event you fail just one Dive Theory topic, you will have the opportunity for a make-up on the same IE at no extra charge.  If you fail two or more Dive Theory topics, you must attend another IE and pay a resit fee of AUD 320.

The written examinations segment is the area that causes most failures at IEs.  It is for this reason that you are STRONGLY URGED to spend $120 directly on the PADI website and complete Dive Theory–English or –Japanese, using our PADI Store code S-6775 so we are kept abreast of your progress.  Dan and the rest of the staff will help you as much as they possibly can with specimen examinations, but of course there is simply no substitute for your own preparation.  This information used to be covered on the DM Course, but this was simplified in 2010.  If you seriously intend to join us as a PADI Instructor, then this is absolutely the best money you will ever spend.

Unlike Dive Theory, SSP is open-book for both the PADI Instructor Manual and PADI’s Guide to Teaching.  You may use paper or electronic versions or both, but you must own your own personal, current set of materials.  The IDC Crew-pak (contains the Guide to Teaching, which ships with a holographic decal sticker that must be affixed to your Instructor Application.  Your SSP exam has 50 questions and you will have another 90 minutes to complete it (or 135 minutes if unavailable in your first language, such as Tagalog, or if you have a doctor’s note for dyslexia, etc.).  You may not use the time allotted for Dive Theory on SSP or vice-versa.  There is no make-up for SSP.

During the Knowledge Development segment of your IE, you must present prescriptively one missed knowledge review question from one of the following PADI courses:  Open Water Diver, Adventures in Diving (”Advanced”) (say the Deep or Drift Adventure Dive), Project AWARE, AWARE Coral Reef Conservation, Rescue Diver or Divemaster.  There is a make-up available.  Both assignments are given during the Orientation from your Examiner.

There is a confined water segment where you first demonstrate a skill and then evaluate the performance of your “students”, who will be your fellow IE candidates.  This skill will be drawn from one of the following PADI courses:  Open Water or Rescue.  You will again have one make-up opportunity available to you in the unlikely eventuality of you needing it.  In this segment also sits the mini skill circuit, comprising five PADI Open Water Course skills, usually including the horizontal Controlled Emergency Swimming Ascent (CESA), hovering for 30 seconds, alternate air source use stationary for 30 seconds and remove and replace the SCUBA unit on the surface in deep water.  Limited make-ups are available.  All assignments are given during the Orientation.

Lastly, there is the open water segment.  This time there are two skills and no make-up.  A fair number of IE failures occur in open water.  The skills are drawn from the following PADI courses:  Open Water, Advanced (Peak Performance Buoyancy, Search and Recovery or Underwater Navigation Adventure Dives) or Rescue.  You will demonstrate Rescue Exercise 7 using either mouth-to-mouth or pocket mask.  As always, all assignments are given to you during the Orientation.

 

IDC Staff Instructor Course (“IDCS”)

Only PADI IDC Staff Instructors and higher may train PADI Assistant Instructors and then only at PADI 5* Dive Resorts and Centres (not necessarily IDC Stores).  All PADI Open Water SCUBA Instructors and above my train PADI Divemasters, but IDC Staff Instructors should have a higher level of Dive Theory and SSP knowledge and really understand how to evaluate Skill Circuits.  IDC Staff Instructors may staff OWSI and IDC programmes and gain credit for both the PADI Master Instructor rating and also in order to apply to attend a PADI Course Director Training Course.  An experienced PADI IDC Staff Instructor is an invaluable asset to an IDC team.

The 201 IDC Staff Instructor Application Fee payable direct to PADI is AUD 137.  PADI will not process your application without the code that ships with the Course Director Manual.

The IDCS course is divided into a number of parts:

  • Pre-assessment with your Course Director Dan, where, as a mentor, you will now need to achieve 80 per cent. on an SSP exam and on each topic in a single set of Dive Theory Exams.  There is also a 20 Skill Circuit with an overall passing score of 80 and 3 on each skill.  You need to present both a prescriptive academic knowledge development classroom presentation and a confined water teaching presentation, scoring at least a 4.0 on each.

 

  • Four IDCS curriculum presentations:  IDCS Orientation; Instructor Development Standards, Procedures and Curriculum; the AI Course; and psychology of IDC candidate evaluation and counselling in the classroom as well as in the water.
  • The second half consists of auditing an entire IDC, learning how to evaluate candidates with your Course Director Dan.  Alternatively, the IDC Staff Instructor candidate can opt for simply delivering all the segments of the Assistant Instructor phase of the IDC as academic presentations.  This is the best option if you the IDC Staff Candidate are short on time with no IE scheduled by PADI.
