Instructor Development Center

Silent World Dive Center, a PADI 5 Star IDC – Instructor Development Center, can prepare you for professional level training like no other facility.  Our experienced staff, small class size, and world class diving in Key Largo combine to create an amazing learning experience.

We have several schedules to help make your dream of becoming a dive professional a reality.  Whether you choose one of our regularly scheduled IDCs, or work with our staff to develop a schedule that fits your needs, we have a program that is right for you.

Our goal at Silent World is not to teach you how to pass the Instructor Exam, but how to teach students beyond the exam.  Our IDC and EFR Instructor classes are taught in a stress-free environment so that you can have fun while learning.

Upon completion of your Instructor Development Course at Silent World, the Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) Prep course will enable you to teach six popular PADI specialties.  These six courses will increase your marketability as a PADI Instructor, and allow you to earn additional income once certified as a PADI professional.

Silent World has no hidden fees for your courses.  Your all-inclusive fee of 2800 dollars includes all IDC materials, IDC E-Learning, and EFR Instructor Materials. The only additional costs are those paid directly to PADI for your Instructor Exam, and certification fees with your applications.

Please feel free to contact our knowledgeable staff, or email me directly:
