IDC Equipment Requirements

If you didn't have your own set of equipment during the Divemaster Course, you will certainly need one to complete the IDC and for use once you become an Instructor.

Having your own equipment during training allows you to become familiar with it and will make your training and diving easier and more comfortable. If you do already have your own equipment and are not sure what to bring then bring everything you have. If you tend to feel the cold then make sure you bring a full length 3-5mm wetsuit, particularly if you are taking the IDC during the cooler months.
