Choosing the right Course Director and Training facility for your instructor training is the most important decision you will make prior to entering the dive industry as a professional educator.

One of the most important steps towards a successful career in diving is your Instructor Training. Becoming a diving instructor is much more than a change of career. You are embarking on an exciting adventure, one that will change your life forever.

It is important that you receive the right preparation to make this lifestyle change a success. Rocket Frog Divers and our PADI Course Director are committed to providing a very high standard of quality, service and professionalism guaranteeing success in your new venture.

With the added benefit of the PADI IDC E-learning you will have the perfect balance of independent studying at your own time and learning from the Course Director during the theoretical and practical sessions.

The course location will be held at Rocket Frog Divers Playa Ocotal and the exam in Playa del Coco.

During our time we will take enough time to ensure you are prepared therefor leaving enough time for remedial work. It is your duty and responsibility to come into this IDC prepared and you are expected to have full mastery of the dive theory before starting the course. Take the time before the program to prepare well in advance!
