Our Training philosophy
Our main goal at Mayan Divers is to develop you as an outstanding professional in the diving industry and for a very successful dive career. We guaranty first time passing rate on the IE. Our PADI Instructor Development Course is a 10 day program plus an additional day for the EFR Instructor course. While our program is two days longer than the conventional 7 day programs, that makes our PADI IDC to be a more comprehensive, professional and relaxed experience.
Prior to the IDC, our Free prep course begins.
The purpose of our prep course is to review and refresh all dive theory and skills that have to be mastered during the IDC. This review is a critical element for the IDC and IE.
The PADI Instructor Development Course is composed of two parts. Part One is the AI (Assistant Instructor) Program, duration 4 days. Part Two is the OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor) Program, duration 6 days. Day 11 is dedicated to the EFR (Emergency First Responder) Instructor Course.
In our PADI Instructor Development Course, we train our Candidates to prepare and perform academic, confined and open water presentations with higher standards than the PADI IDC guidelines and performance requirements. Our candidates are ready to teach PADI Courses upon graduation. We enhance our training with a Free week of on-hand teaching PADI Courses with our experienced PADI Instructional staff.
During the entire program Our PADI Course Director and Staff will provide to all our candidates 1-on-1 guidance and personal attention, This is one of the reasons why we guaranty I.E.(Instructor Examination) first time pass rate. Our PADI Instructor Development Course is a life changing experience. Mayan Divers Instructor candidates are successful because of our experience passion and devotion for diving and teaching.
Two days prior to the IDC, our free preparation course begins.
The course reviews the 5 theory sessions: Physics, Physiology, Skills and Environment, the Recreational Dive Planner and Equipment. The prep course reviews all the 24 Scuba and Skin diving skills circuit from the PADI Divemaster Course. We know from experience that IDC Candidates may want to refresh/refine these skills. For this reason, we are in the pool with you to review each one of these skills and remediate as necessary.
Next day after the prep course, our IDC begins with the Instructor Development Course Orientation, paper work, and breakfast together to socialize and meet each other. Our PADI Instructor Development Course delivers higher standards than required by PADI IDC curriculum and performance requirements. In addition to the PADI IDC requirements, we offer the following workshops:
- Knots tying
- Lifting and rigging
- Retail shops sales and management
