All Change for Pro Training

PADI have just released their new style IDC which has some interesting new features and some options which need careful consideration.
The big change is the removal of the instructor candidate workbook and its replacement with the new PADI's Guide To Teaching. The guide goes hand in hand with the new style Instructor Manual. If you are thinking of starting any pro level training make sure you are obtaining the new materials from now on.
The IDC now has an eLearning option, 9 lectures completed on line, reducing the IDC time by 2 days. The same 9 lectures can be completed in the conventional instructor led way as part of the IDC returning it to the full 7 days. Here at Leybourne we are offering IDC's based on either version. Lastly changes have been made to the marking system used during the IDC and the IE. For more information please give us a call at the centre.
