The IDC/IE Guarantee

We are so confident in our teaching methods 

that we guarantee that you will pass your IE the first time, 

or we will pay for the second exam!

Our job is not done until you are a scuba instructor, 

and you cannot become a PADI Instructor until you pass the IE.  

So we work extremely hard to make sure 

that you are successful at the IE. 

This also translates into being a better instructor.

We have developed new teaching methodologies 

to make sure that you are ready before you take the exam.

 Since 2008, every candidate in every one of our classes

 has passed the IE on their first try. 

Overall in the past 10 years, 

our pass rate is 97% on the first try and 100% on the second try. 

And we teach an average of 7 IDC/OWSI classes every year!

What does this mean? 

This means that if you sign up to take 

the IDC or OWSI class with us, 

you will become a quality PADI instructor.

Harold Bach has earned the PADI Frequent Trainer award 

every year since the awards were created. 

He is one of a handful of Course Directors in the world 

with 5 or more Platinum awards.

His former students are currently employed 

in 6 countries around the world!

What's the catch?

The only catch is that both you must attend 

all 5 days of the course and then you and Harold 

must agree that you are ready for the exam. 

Then if you aren't successful on any one part of the IE, 

you must still make a good-faith effort 

to pass the other 3 parts during that exam.

Afterwards, we will work with you to get you ready for the next exam.

We are confident that you will be so satisfied 

with your training that 

like the majority of active instructors in the Chicagoland area, 

you will refer your students to us 

when it's time for them to take the IDC.
