Instructor Development Center
The PADI Five Star Dive Center membership level is awarded to progressive PADI Dive Centers that excel in providing divers with a full range of diver education programs, equipment selection, and experience opportunities.
To qualify as PADI Five Star Dive Centers, an operation must meet elevated service and business standards, and promote and offer PADI courses as their only recreational diver training. These dive centers also actively promote aquatic environmental awareness and embrace the PADI System of diver education, with a commitment to providing customers with quality products, services and experiences.
A PADI Five Star Instructor Development Center not only meets all PADI Five Star Dive Center standards, but also meets additional training standards required to offer PADI Instructor-level training. A PADI Five Star IDC offers dive consumers programs to fulfill their educational goals from entry-level training up through instructor-level certifications.
