Award winning and Platinum PADI Course Director Camille Lemmens of PADI IDC Thailand welcomes you to the Gulf of Thailand 's tropical island of Koh Samui and to the Andaman Sea’s tropical locations Koh Lanta and Khao Lak to participate in one of his popular PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) courses or packages.

In the Philippines you're welcome at PADI 5*IDDR 'Thresher Cove' on Malapascua. Please contact him for more specific information on each location.

 

 

Camille’s emphasis at PADI IDC Thailand is on personalized training. He works generally with small groups and conducts all parts of the IDC training himself and is available at all times during the complete IDC which allows for lots of personal and individual attention.

Choosing the right school for your Instructor Training and internship is the most important decision you will make prior to entering the Dive Industry.

Camille’s programs provide the quality and expertise you should expect and demand during your Instructor Training. My Instructor Development Course programs will provide valuable hands-on training with the emphasis on fun and in-water application. The cutting edge knowledge gained will expand your Career Opportunities.

Our aim is to make sure that you successfully pass the PADI IE and receive that extra bit of information and knowledge to become a highly trained Open Water Scuba Instructor after the IE. You will be having fun working in a safe and reliable way in a tropical destination.

Free your mind, change your life and become a PADI dive Instructor.

It's also possible to crossover from another Recreational dive organisation into the PADI system with a crossover program.
