Why do your Scuba Instructor Training Courses at
GoPro Cozumel IDC?
GoPro Cozumel uses the most modern technology and PADI digital products in a premier classroom for the PADI IDC, Instructor Development Course in Cozumel Mexico. Our Course Directors have experience teaching around the world and have dedication to work with each student to succeed. GoPro Cozumel teaches the PADI IDC to exceed all minimum requirements having you well prepared to join the work force as a PADI Scuba Instructor. While many IDC's are only 9 to 11 days, we have extended our PADI IDC to include 14 days of training. These extra days make your in classroom time per day shorter and gives you more in-water training sessions. The 14 day schedule has been proven to give all our candidates an advantage over the shorter IDC's. We limit the size of the class to no more than 8 candidates per IDC. This gives you a more personal feel about the program and the opportunity for our CD to give you plenty of one on one attention and instruction. Not all candidates progress at the same pace so we have implemented many additional Theory and Standard exams, a variety of additional practical in-water application learning sessions, an abundance of skill workshops and extra academic presentations so that when the IE and more importantly your first job arrives, you are very well prepared to handle the situation.

We offer you the best PADI scuba diving instructor training environment in Mexico for you to plunge yourself and learn in, with daily scuba diving courses and many daily dive trips which no facility in Mexico or most of the world can match.
