Why is Labuan Bajo a great place for your scuba instructor career development?

Not only is the town laid back and not party oriented (perfect for being able to focus on your course) but it’s also the gateway to some of the most fantastic diving in the world. When you do your instructor course with Dragon Dive Komodo, you will get to go diving in the Komodo National Park for free during your course*! Also, depending on the season, you can get some experience with the famous, strong currents of Komodo which will greatly help you develop as a diver.

What happens during the Instructor Development Course in Komodo?

Although it’s possible to complete an Instructor Development Course in about a week, it’s much better to have more days in order to make sure you are confident about going into your exams. This program helps you gain the knowledge and teaching skills that you will need in order to get your first job in the diving industry. During the course, you will spend time in the classroom, pool, and ocean directly with Aitor Diaz or with his Staff Instructors, Sarah Miller and Sergio Palazuelos. 

Every Instructor Development Course must have a certain number of required components in order for each student to present themselves for the final exam. Apart from these mandatory lessons, you will get some free practice workshops and certifications as part of the normal IDC package. These extras include Instructor level courses in O2 provider and Project AWARE Shark Conservation, a full resume workshop, your PADI online products tutorial, a tour of the brand new hyperbaric chamber in Labuan Bajo and just for fun: sidemount tryouts. 

Aitor Diaz and Dragon Dive Komodo is your go to combo for phenomenal Instructor Development Courses in Labuan Bajo. Life as an instructor can be a fantastic reality so wait no more! We are stoked to help you get there.
