As with most things in life, there always a few little things that come to mind when reading through lots of information.


Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions that we get from our prospective Pro Level Internship candidates.


What does a CDC Centre mean..??


CDC stands for "Career Development Centre". This is the highest award given by PADI to any diving resort/centre to recognise first-class levels of Pro Level training. Here at IDC Koh Tao we are very proud to have achieved this level.


I am new to diving, can I become an Instructor..??

Yes, if you are a newly qualified diver (or even a beginner!), you are eligible to enroll on the PADI IDC. We have fully inclusive Diving Internships which can take you through from being a recreational diver to fully qualified Instructor.


What about accommodation..??


We are partnered with Crystal Dive Resort, Koh Tao's award-winning PADI Dive Resort and also Koh Tao Regal Resort, one of the island's newest resorts. Accommodation is offered to all IDC Koh Tao candidates at discounted rates, covering all budgets.


What is your "pass guarantee"..??


"In the highly unlikely event you are unsuccessful on the IE we will pay for your second IDC & IE". This is exactly as it says. We are so confident that our Instructor Development Course will prepare you for a successful Instructor Exam that we will cover the expense of re-taking if there is any issues.*

*So far, this hasn't happened..!!
