PADI Instructor Development Course

First of all, Congratulations! You have come a long way and you have been through a lot from the day you started to scuba dive. It might be just six months ago for some of you and it could be very-very long time ago for some since you took your first breath underwater. Whether you are a PADI Divemaster, PADI Assistant Instructor or a dive professional from other recognized dive-training agency; becoming a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor is a big door opening to an adventurous, exciting and rewarding life-style or career.

Welcome aboard Gopro-Malaysia, the premier PADI Instructor Development Training program in Malaysia.

Yes, there are hundreds or maybe thousands of PADI Course Directors and PADI IDC centres in the world offering PADI IDC – but NOT all PADI IDCs are the same. Choosing the right trainer and training centre is one of the crucial steps of becoming a successful PADI Instructor.

Nothing can prepare you better than participating in an instructor training at a PADI IDC Center/ Resort that will no doubt be similar to one that you might work at in the future. Our PADI Gopro and IDC program emphasize the importance of peer cooperation and encourages team spirit - one of the single most important factors behind a successful future as a professional dive educator, not just as a dive instructor.

Our team pledge is that you get the absolute best possible support and back-up during your PADI IDC, making it an efficient, enjoyable and stress-free learning experience.

In this relaxed and well-tutored environment you will benefit immensely from our "enriched" PADI Instructor Development Course and PADI Instructor Level Continuing Education programs.
