IDC Packages

PADI Career Development Centre

As a PADI Career Development Centre we are able to offer you so much more than a standard Instructor Development Centre. In addition to being able to fast track you through your training with lower entry requirements onto the IDC and onto the IE (*see below for details), we have also built some exceptional experience packages to really give you a head start when job hunting and make you stand out from the crowd.

*As a PADI Career Development Centre we are exclusively allowed to have you complete your IDC, certify you as an Assistant Instructor, and have you sit your IE with just 60 dives (the normal requirement is 100) once certified as an Assistant Instructor and with a minimum of 6 months since OW qualification. Upon successful completion, you would then join the team at Ocean Turtle Diving to gain hands on experience whilst increasing your logged dives. Once you reach 100 you will automatically become a PADI OWSI, and if you have taken our MSDT programme, as soon as you have then certified 25 divers, at any level, in any course, you can then apply for your Master Scuba Diver Trainer credential – and no doubt land yourself the job of your dreams!
