Weekend format IDC is designed for people who have a regular day job and cannot afford to take 3 weeks off to participate in a week long format IDC/IE. This IDC is scheduled to run every year around May in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This IDC is also scheduled to be completed one week before the scheduled PADI IE in Toronto, so candidates will enter the IE with all knowledge still fresh in their mind. After this IDC, often we have MSDT preparation program, DAN Instructor Qualification Course and ITI VIP course offered to follow.

We work with Aquarius Scuba and Adventure Sports Newmarket to conduct this PADI Instructor Development Course in the weekend format. It is a 10 day comprehensive IDC and all candidates will have to complete IDC eLearning and Dive Theory onLine prior to the start of the program.  We try to let our candidates have as much in water time as possible, we will have at least 2 full days of open water dives and 4 days of confined water sessions through out the program.

We are committed as 100% partner of Project AWARE, every candidate from this IDC program will earn both AWARE Shark Conservation Diver Specialty Instructor and AWARE Dive Against Debris Specialty Instructor ratings as a bonus.
