Save time. Be prepared. Take IDC online

To prepare for your IDC on Bali we offer 2 options at Joe’s Gone Diving. Either prepare from home via eLearning or join our classroom sessions on Bali before the start of the IDC. So how does that work? As part of the IDC curriculum you will need to follow several presentations, called IDC Online. Most dive centers conduct these live in classroom setting . At Joe’s we offer you the choice, either prepare them via eLearning and spend less time in the classroom or, if you don’t have the time to do eLearning beforehand, simply join our classroom sessions during our Bali IDC with the IDC online presentations. The big advantage of eLearning? You can straight away dive into interactive workshops, applying the PADI standards and practicing teaching techniques.

When signing up for eLearning, make sure you affiliate with our dive center, as it entitles you to a USD 150 discount on our course price. You will pay PADI directly AUD 412 (about USD 296) for the eLearning.
