With our training experience, we have found the most challenging aspects of the Instructor Exam (IE) are the Dive Theory Exams.  The IDC Prep course is designed to give the IDC candidate extra dive theory exam preparation to ensure their success on the Instructor Exam.  During a typical IDC, there is little time to review these topics.  The Dive Boutique Cozumel IDC Prep Course reviews these topics and identifies any areas of weakness that need strengthening.  This is why our IDC Prep Course is included with all of our IDCs.

Our program comes with our exclusive Dive Boutique Cozumel promise!

Our promise to you is simple.  If you complete your IDC with us, we guarantee you will pass your IE or you can come back and participate in another IDC at no additional cost.  We will even cover your additional PADI fees! 

Our goal is for you to become a successful PADI Instructor!
