Become an IDEA Instructor!
The IDEA Instructor course is planned in 3 modules. The first module consists of standards and procedures, theory and practice, and lesson planning of introductory courses, the basic course and 1 star course. Ultimately, the Instructor Trainer evaluates students’ knowledge of practice, namely water exercises, rescue activity, first aid and CPR maneuvers, and theory, before the IDEA course test and theory lesson test. After positive evaluation the student is admitted to the final exam. If the candidate passes the exam, then he/she becomes a qualified OWD Instructor and can issue certificates of completion for the courses in this module and apply to be qualified for basic level specialties. The second module consists of Advanced OWD, 2 star and Deep Diver courses and lasts 10 hours or more. Completion of this module leads to the designation of Advanced Instructor, which allows the recipient to teach the courses Advanced OWD, 2 Stars, Deep Diver and apply for all IDEA specialties. The third module includes the courses Rescue Diver, Divemaster and Assistant Instructor. Completion of this module leads to the designation of Scuba Instructor, which allows the recipient to teach all IDEA student courses.
Instructors with active status by recognised agencies can participate in a 3 days course (crossover). in this course the Instructor Trainer will train candidates to teach all the IDEA student courses. Candidates who successfully complete the course will achieve the designation Scuba Instructor.
