Ocean Tribe is delighted to announce we have partnered with Scuba Dive Online on PADI IDCs. For those of you who are pushed for time or would like to enhance your IDC experience by preparing you for the in-water presentations, Scuba Dive Online allows you to complete the PADI eLearning, classroom workshops, and some knowledge development presentations through online face-to-face interactions with PADI Course Directors. This allows you to be much more flexible with your IDC preparation training and devote more of the IDC to the practical part.
