IDC Preparation

Although the IDC does include skill circuits it assumes a certain level of comfort with those skills. Therefore if you’ve had a gap between your Divemaster course and the start of the IDC or you would just like some practise before starting up then the IDC Preparation course is ideal.

Duration: Usually 1 day

What’s Involved? The idea of the IDC prep course is to give you a chance to practice and refresh any skills or theory that you would like to go over before the IDC begins. We usually follow the following schedule.

Morning: Theory refresher on basics of dive theory as well as covering some of the gaps between DM and IDC theory.

Afternoon: Skill circuit in confined water and rescue refresher.

The idea is for the day to concentrate on areas that you want to work on

Cost? £150 midweek or £175 at weekends.

Not included:

  • Transport
  • dive site entrance if applicable
  • Equipment hire

Please note it is possible to run these courses on a one on one basis but in those cases you will need to cover the instructor’s overheads too.
