DSD Conduct and Conduct workshop are included in the PADI IDC Syllabus, but during the program this will be extended allowing candidates to practice methods of conducting the Discover Scuba Diving Program in the safest possible way whilst providing the best possible underwater experience.
Additional workshops include dive site set up and management workshops, student control workshops which are designed to teach candidates how to set up their training site to conduct the particular program they wish to teach. For example taking a Discover Scuba Diving Participant on an underwater experience requires a different setup and procedure than dive 1 of the Open Water Course where the students are still entering Open Water for the first time.

These PADI IDC Indonesia Workshops are conducted in a dry format on the beach and in Open Water.
