We have been offering Instructor Development Courses since 2001. Seeing how much fun the candidates have during their training and how successful they are working in the dive industry shows us that we are still on the right track.
In addition, Subway Watersports is a PADI 5-Star Resort and Instructor Development Center and Green Star Award winner. Not only are we proud of these titles, but they also show our dedication to following the highest quality standards set by PADI.
We absolutely love passing our passion onto future dive professionals. The Subway Watersports Pro Team will use all their extensive experience and knowledge to help you on your path to becoming a professional Scuba diving Instructor in an ideal location and perfect learning environment.
Our IDC gives you the confidence you need to teach in the classroom, confined water, and open water environments. Our training is so complete you will not need an internship to gain experience. Instead you will be ready to receive your first students and start earning a living in a career you love.
To further help prepare you, we conduct the following workshops:
We look forward to seeing you in our Instructor Development Course and helping you in the next step of your professional diving career!
Our combined IDC and EFR Instructor program in Roatan normally runs for 13 days, which allows some flexibility in the scheduling to accommodate a “free day” midway through, so you can go diving on Roatan’s spectacular coral reef and further hone your skills. This way you are not just in the classroom.
Typically, we conduct the Emergency First Response Instructor Course first, followed by the Assistant Instructor, and then conclude with the Open Water Scuba Instructor components.
You are now able to complete some of your IDC Theory from home with PADI’s eLearning so that you can spend less time in the classroom and more time in the water. If you choose to do eLearning, you will be able to spend about four days during the IDC fun diving, or, ask us about the possibilities for a shorter IDC program.
Learn in a relaxed and conducive environment. All PADI materials and equipment needed are here ready for you.
Our Instructors will work with you down to the smallest details. We pride ourselves in our experienced and quality- oriented PADI Professionals and team.
Instructor Examinations (IE) are also conducted on the island for your comfort and convenience. Our team will be right there to support you during this important and final step of the training.
Everything included in the prices above is as follows:
We understand that ‘Return on Investment’ is a new challenge for most of our candidates once the program is over. Therefore, at Subway we have teamed up with our “sister” dive operations to ensure that any position available gets filled by successful candidates of our programs.
It is important for our candidates to remember that your performance during the Internships and IDC Program is being followed closely by our team. There are several events hosted by our resorts throughout the year that may require the help from several PADI Professionals
After your Divemaster internship you will also receive all of the following post-internship benefits:
