IDC Boracay.

IDC Boracay. WaterColors S-6775, Philippines. Asia Divers dive Careers Development Centre CDC-16907, Koh Tao, Thailand. Sri Lanka.

PADI trains c.75 per cent. of the World’s divers, c.75 per cent. of divers in Asia, c.75 per cent. of divers in Thailand and the Philippines and c.75 per cent. of divers on Koh Tao and on Boracay.  Your IDC Boracay or Koh Tao will let you aim at c.75 per cent. of the dive market.  You may cross over to SSI cheaply in one day with any SSI IT, but you may not cross over to PADI OWSI without passing a PADI IE, which you may attend if you have passed a PADI OWSI Course or IDC Boracay or Koh Tao in the last 12 months.

Your PADI IDC Boracay, PHL; Koh Tao, THA; or Trincomalee, LKA is the best place to start if you want to change your life and GoPro.  You will need DM first and I can help you with this.  It is good to work as a DM, but most stores will not pay you as they have DMTs who pay to do their DM course and these DMCs also lead guests who pay the store (not the DMT) to dive.  PADI DMCs often pay to work.  Once you are OWSI you can get paid to work both as a DM and teach, which pays far more.  There are many OWSIs who will lead dives, so you will need skills and luck to get hired as a DM.  So, now is the time to do your PADI IDC Boracay, PH; Koh Tao, TH; or Batticaloa, LK.

If you are OWSI and you have 25 certs. (count five DSDs/ReActivate or two OW referrals for one cert.), you are ready for MSDT and straight away IDC Boracay or Koh Tao Staff Instructor.  If you want to choose from more dive careers, IDC Staff is for you.  A lot of dive centre manager jobs need IDC Staff.  You will be able to train AIs, staff OWSI and IDC programmes and move through MI and CD.

Cave and deep tec diving is my passion when I am not running my IDC Boracay, PH; Koh Tao, TH; or Negombo, LK courses.  I also love to help students start diving and then to continue to learn, so they can pass on their passion to their own students.  I can travel to you, wherever you are in the World or you can meet me at one of the places I train.

My home is with my Thai girlfriend on the paradise Island of Koh Tao in Amazing Thailand, the Land of Smiles and I travel around Asia and globally to run my PADI IDC Boracay, PH; Sri Lankan and tec diving instructor courses.  I teach at home on Koh Tao in Thailand, inc. running there my monthly PADI Instructor Development Courses, Master SCUBA Diver Trainer Prep and MSDT Internships, IDC Staff Instructor, Asssistant Instructor and Divemaster Courses.  Boracay is my second home—It’s more fun in the Philippines!

Each two months I run my PADI IDC, IDC Staff, MSDT Prep & Internship, Speciality Instructor Training Courses, EFR Instructor Courses, AI and DM Courses on the beautiful Island of Boracay, off Panay, in the Philippine Visayas.  My school is TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award Winner WaterColors Boracay Diving Adventures S-6775.  As at the time of writing, we are the Number 2 B&B/Inn of 201 on Boracay and #9 in the Philippines.  We are on the most photographed White Beach in the Philippines with hotel at Boat Station 1 and IDC Store at Station 3.

My 2016 Instructor Examination dates are below, with my PADI IDC Asia and IDC Staff dates.

  3. Trevor Bowden says:

    Hi, I would just like to say that i have really enjoyed my time staffing the IDC with Dan in Maafushi Maldives, As an active IDC staff instructor i teach many diving courses but it is always good to go back to basics to reboot the old braincells. I found his teaching method informative educational and motivational for my future development.

    Thanks Dan
    Will be back for more

    • Thank you very much for your positive review Trevor! You and Vivien were both an absolute pleasure to work with and I was delighted to help you both achieve PADI Master Instructor. Looking forward to working with you both again in the future

      • You did very well on your Instructor Development Course and it was motivating for me to help you progress into a confident, effective, efficient and ethical diving instructor.
        Congratulations on your Dive Theory results and thank you for these kind words!

    Hi Dan
    I am looking for an IDC for my wife. She is a dive master already but she could use the prep. as we have both not been active in diving for 3 years. Once she becomes an instructor we have a dive resort that we will be running so would be interested in promoting your IDC courses. What infomation I need from yourself is Cost of the IDC and what price you can offer on the crew pack. and any other deals you could offer. thanks in advance

    I just recently joined, and passed an IDC with Dan as my Course Director in Boracay, Philippines. He helped us solve many unanswered questions, taught us many things a new, as well as clearing us up, and helping us with our individual weaknesses. Classes were a blast!! I couldn’t have asked for a more entertaining and educational IDC, and I plan to join Dan again with my future education.
    Best regards!

    • Thank you so much for your awesome feedback. Was lovely to meet you and your family. You have a great attitude and I really enjoy working with you. Glad you had fun; I certainly did!
      With my very best regards as ever
