PADI IDC Materials.

PADI IDC Materials.  IE Dive Equipment Exam.  White Beach, Boracay, Philippines.  TecRec Course Director Dan Robinson.

SCUBA divers who want me to sent them to a PADI IE must have passed an IDC with me in the last 12 months.  To join an IDC, they need, among other things, PADI IDC Materials and PADI Divemaster or equiv. with a PADI Open Water Diver card or equiv. from a min. of six months ago.  To pass an IDC with me, you will need to pass full sets of unseen closed-book PADI Dive Theory Exams.  You will need to pass a new set at your IE.  Dive Theory has six topics and five sets of 12 questions.  You will have 90 mins. to use as you wish and may ask your Instructor Examiner to give you some more simple words.  You may not have an oral exam with someone to translate for you.  You may have 50 per cent. more time if you can prove a learning problem or if the exams are not printed in a tongue you can read.  Your PADI IDC Materials may not include PADI’s Diving Knowledge Workbook as some versions of the IDC Crew-pak do not have this.  PADI’s Encyclopædia of Recreational Diving is in PADI DM Crew-paks and not in your PADI IDC Materials.

The best tip I can give you to prepare is to send me AUD Australian dollars A$120 and I will send you an eLearning Gift Pass with many questions on.
