Sunfish Divers

PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC)


The PADI IDC program is your final step in the quest to become a PADI Instructor. The IDC is simply a combination of the AI, the OWSI and the IE. Normally these courses are taken at the same time, and we call this the IDC.

Sunfish divers was established in 1978 as one of the first dive centres in Cyprus, it has been a PADI 5 star Dive centre since 1992.
In 2008 we became a PADI 5 STAR IDC CENTRE, we offer Instructor Development Courses and Instructor Continuous Education Courses.
Let us guide you to success and share with you the experience we continue to build.

1. Personal attention
Your Course Director and Staff Instructors will always have the time for You. We teach at a relaxed pace making the learning experience stress-free and positive. All candidates progress together. One to one sessions can be the solution when some of the candidates have trouble in one or more subjects during the IDC.

2. Great Facilities
We cooperate with ”Marina beach Hotel” to complete the IDC. The conference room for our Academic training and the swimming pool for our Confined water training. We will be spending many hours in the classroom, so we try to make it as comfortable and convenient as possible with regular coffee breaks.
We use PADI’s latest presentations projected on a large screen. These presentations include live-action video which help to clearly illustrate proper teaching techniques. For our Open Water training sessions we use the dive site ”Blue Haze” which is only 2 minutes drive from the Hotel.

3. Expert Instruction
Our full time, in house, Course Director and Staff Instructors have an excellent working knowledge of all levels of PADI courses as they are teach these courses almost every day. This gives them valuable insight into the practical everyday situations all PADI professionals face. This experience, along with their language abilities, makes for one of the best instructional teams around.

4. Multilingual I.D.C’s
Our experienced Staff Instructors can teach the IDC in English, German, Danish and Greek languages.

5. Acommodation
Marina Hotel offers special packages for candidates who wish to stay there during the IDC.

6. Opportunity to work in Cyprus after your I.E.
We have excellent relationships with most diving centers in Cyprus and we will do our best to help you find a job if you so desire.
