PADI CDTC Prep - Three Months - 75,000 THB
If you are aiming for the top and looking to be able to independently train PADI Instructors in the future, we have an internship to help you realise your dreams. During your time Staffing IDCs alongside our experienced Platinum PADI Course Director, you will polish your evaluation, critique and presentations skills to the level expected of PADI Course Directors. We will also guide you through the PADI CDTC application process, helping you with your business plan, providing a letter of recommendation, and helping with other areas of your application as needed.
In order to join our minimum three-month internship, you must already be at least qualified as a PADI IDC Staff Instructor, preferably as a PADI Master Instructor. During the internship not only will you be Staffing IDCs for experience and credit, we also help you move forward with other areas of the CDTC Application process.
We will help you formulate a valid business plan, and will also organise a meeting with a PADI Regional Manager to discuss this with you too. If you haven't already got them, we can include the Specialty Instructor Training Courses for the AWARE Shark Conservation and Dive Against Debris PADI Specialty Courses, and then we will help you to organise and register Project AWARE events - another step in the CDTC Application process.
This internship will also gain you three PADI IDC Staffing credits, and we will provide you with the necessary IDC Course Report Forms to submit with your CDTC Application. The more IDC Staffing credits the better as far as a CDTC Application goes, and you have the option of adding extra months to the Course Director Prep Internship at 10,000 Baht per month. We will endeavour to give you an active role in the IDCs, and there will be chances for you to stand up and deliver curriculum presentations to the IDC candidates. Staffing consecutive IDCs is also the best way to improve your evaluation skills - in the classroom, open water and in our on-site 4m deep pool. In between IDCs, you will also have the opportunity to team-teach with our team of instructors to help increase your continuing education ratios ahead of your application for the CDTC.
We will also strive to make sure your PADI standards and dive theory knowledge is up to scratch, and provide remediation where necessary. When you are ready, we will also register for you to sit the exams at one of the IEs conducted in Phuket during your stay.
At the end of your PADI Course Director Prep Internship, we will sit down with you and have a thorough review of your performance and of your CDTC Application. If you require us to, we can also write you a letter of recommendation to support your application for the prestigious PADI Course Director Training Course. You will need two letters of recommendation to support your application.
The three-month PADI CDTC Prep Internship costs 75,000 Thai Baht. You can also increase your time and number of IDC Staffing credits by adding an extra 10,000 Thai Baht per month. This price does not include any PADI application fees or materials that you might not already have. You must also already be a PADI IDC Staff Instructor as a minimum before undertaking this programme.
If you are looking for a slighty different programme to reach your goal of becoming a PADI Course Director, please get in touch and we will tailor an individual programme to suit your needs and time-frame. Please also check out our IDC schedule for start dates.
