Physics and Physical laws have a great influence during diving. If you want to learn more and understand different physical aspects underwater and how to explain it to your divers or student divers you will find everything you need to know in this IDC Theory Physics section.
Understanding your Respiratory and Circulatory systems does not only gives you a better understanding how to prevent or handle accidents, it also helps you to explain specific topics and objections non-divers have towards diving.
The choices of equipment are limitless, but the core functions are the same. In the unlikely event that equipment malfunctions, you need to be able to fix small issues and you will need to understand how each part is working. General standards and regulations are very important, which we will cover here as well.
To guarantee safety and fun during your dives and courses, you will need to be able to make the best possible decision when it comes down to tides, waves and currents. As an Instructor you will teach people in the open water course more about environment and how to read it.
Most people are getting the shivers only by mentioning RDP. No worries guys, in this IDC Theory section I will explain to you how that little card works in a computer assisted age.
Learn how to use and interpret the PADI instructor manual. Find all the information you need as a PADI instructor.
The PADI open water course has 24 different skills, the rescue course has 10 skills, the advanced course has…. I guess you get the picture. How do you demonstrate all these different skills, how can you break them up in small blocks people can remember?
I've just completed the January 2018 IDC with Markus and I cannot recommend his mentorship and teaching highly enough. His patience with a group of diverse individuals at different levels of learning and experience is to be commended and the result of a 100% IDC pass rate as well as 100% IE says it all. It was also a lot of fun (just watch the video). If you want to get your Open Water Scuba Instructor certification, Joe's with Markus is the place to do it.
I’ve recently done my Instructor Development Course at Joe’s Gone Diving and it was one of the most life-changing experiences I’ve had so far. The IDC was not only about getting more knowledge about diving and getting taught how to teach, I've learned a lot about myself and about different kind of people.
„My chief instructor Markus, was all great at imparting knowledge in a really pragmatic and fun way. I struggled a little at the start of the course, but he really helped me through some minor difficulties I had.“
I did my IDC with Joe's gone diving last year and I can highly recommend this dive center. Beside the course the facilities at Joe's are also very good. Good lunch, clean toilets and showers, clean towels and a nice pool. Thank you guys for an amazing time.
Did my Divemaster with Joe's over 6 weeks. Absolutely amazing ! Could not say enough good things. Instructors knew exactly how to push you to the next level day in and out. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming from the moment I entered the door up until after I was finished.
