So you're struggling to explain the difference between hypocapnia and hypercapnia? Having trouble with how the partial pressure of oxygen at 30 metres is 0.84ppO2? Perhaps your hover isn’t quite like you saw it on the PADI DVD…

During the IDC & IE you will need to demonstrate top quality diving skills plus total competence in dive theory to an even higher level than what you gained in your Divemaster course. That's why the IDC Preparation Course is the perfect way to get you feeling confident and ready for the 12 days ahead.

What You Learn

The IDC Preparation Course offers a thorough review of your knowledge of the five main areas of dive theory – Physics; Physiology; Dive Equipment; Recreational Dive Planner and General Skills & the Environment – as well as the 24 Basic Confined Water Skills.

PADI eLearning

Although the course can be tailored to your needs and focus on areas you feel are not as strong as others, it is divided into two days:

Day 1 - Classroom work, in which you will have lectures on theory, take sample exams and review any doubts you might have with repeated practice.

Day 2 - Pool sessions, in which you will be assessed on your current skills with repeated practice. Also includes a Rescue Workshop.

What You Need

The PADI Divemaster Crew Pack plus the Diving Knowledge Workbook. All core PADI course manuals (Open Water Diver, Advanced and Rescue Diver) will be of great help too. The Divemaster Pack of materials includes:

PADI materials
