Turn the Ocean into your Office with Dive Training in Roatan
Many dream of traveling the world and experiencing new cultures. By becoming a Divemaster or taking your Instructor Development Course (IDC), your dreams of adventure can be your reality. Roatan Dive Academy powered by Subway Watersports is a PADI 5-Star Resort and Instructor Development Center on the island of Roatan off the Honduras Caribbean coast. We combine exceptional training with spectacular diving for the best Instructor Development in the industry.
Internships prepare passionate divers for the world of professional scuba diving. Being a PADI Instructor opens many opportunities, ranging from teaching on the beach on remote islands, staffing cruise ships, hotel resorts, to diving in aquariums. PADI is the leading diving association in the world serving 70% of the market, meaning your qualifications will be recognized world-wide.
At Roatan Dive Academy, we pride ourselves on conducting Instructor Development Courses in the most professional yet fun way. We love passing our passion onto future instructors and use our extensive experience and knowledge to help you on your professional diving path, in an ideal location and learning environment. Because of this we keep our IDC classes small, 6 candidates maximum, to facilitate personal interaction and one-on-one instruction.
Our IDC program is more than enough preparation for the Instructor Exam (IE) as our focus is on career development and your professional life after the exam. Our instructors will teach you how to use your skills in the local environment and in those areas where you will choose to continue your career.
If you are already a Divemaster with the prerequisite 100 logged dives, you may enroll in the 13 day IDC program held monthly. If you are not quite ready as a Divemaster, we can help you through our Instructor Internship program. Should time be a concerning factor, we offer a limited program where you can complete the Assistant Instructor and/or Emergency First Response Instructor.
Because your time is valuable, PADI has made eLearning another option for professional candidates. Through this online service you can revise your dive theory knowledge, or complete about 1/3 of the IDC theory in advance of the course. This is a premium service that allows you to learn online at home and reduce your time in the IDC classroom, so we can spend more time in the water. If you are interested in this option, click on the eLearning link in the box on the right side. If you decide to do the eLearning you will be able to spend about 4 days during the IDC fun diving, or inquire about a shortened IDC program.
We look forward to helping you into a new and exciting professional dive career!
