PADI Instructor Development Course

The PADI Instructor Development Course ( IDC) is conducted at Nerja Dive Resort, of which our centre holds the highest rating; PADI Gold Palm resort 5 star IDC centre. We are located on the sunny Costa del Sol, in southern Spain, within one hours drive of Malaga airport.

We train divers from beginners level right up to Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI)

PADI´s slogan is ´Diving Is Fun´, and this is also our philosophy at Nerja Dive Resort.

The IDC is conducted at the Dive Centre, and within our own “IDC Villa”, which is situated by the Frigiliana road just a stones throw from the dive centre. The villa offers a very tranquil environment which is perfect for studying, and can accommodate 10 candidates and boasts a large kitchen & living room, with a private pool and BBQ area outside.

The candidates on the Nerja Dive Resort PADI IDC can also be accommodated within the villa, which avoids additional hotel costs, and time wasted in transport. We also find that, by staying with other candidates on the course, it can help with course preparation and practice.

All of training is done to very high standards, by instructors who can speak English, Spanish, Norwegian, Swedish and Danish.

For already qualified divers who want to grow into a PADI PRO there are different options, please mail us to find the best path for you!
