PADI Courses Explained

Bubble Maker Course (8 years old +)

From the age of 8 a PADI ‘Bubble Maker’ course can be attained. To become a PADI Certified Junior Open Water Scuba Diver, it is required that you are at least 10 years old. This certification requires diving to be made with a certified parent, guardian or PADI Professional at no greater than a depth of 12 metres. Ten to 14 year olds must dive with a certified adult. Junior PADI Certification can be upgraded to a regular Open Water Diver Certification but only at the age of 15.

PADI Instructor Development Course

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is the cornerstone of PADI’s professional-level training. Becoming a PADI Instructor consists of these segments – knowledge development, practical application and the Instructor Examination. The online portion of the course covers nine topics which prepare you for the practical sessions needed to complete your Open Water Scuba Instructor course. Prior to enrolling in the PADI IDC, you must be at least 18 years old, have a current medical attesting to your diving fitness signed by a physician within the previous 12 months and hold a leadership level diving certification such as the PADI Divemaster rating. You must also have been a certified diver for at least six months and be able to prove that you have completed at least 60 dives (100 before attending the Instructor Examination).

The Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating sets you apart from other dive instructors by showing your commitment to continuing your dive training and being prepared to help others continue their training as well. You also get to teach specialty diver courses – which opens the door to lots of fun while working. As a PADI Master Scuba Diver you will be able to demonstrate to a dive employer that you have the necessary experience in teaching diving and also can teach a range of specialty diver courses. In short, to qualify as a PADI Master Scuba Diver, you must be a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, have five PADI specialty instructor certifications and also have certified at least 25 PADI Divers.
