Next year's dates are expected to be similar to this year.
They will be announced in September, and based on PADI's IE schedule.

Please note that Assistant Instructor and EFRI courses can also be taught at any time. Even the IDC can sometimes be taught on demand and it may be possible to arrange one-on-one courses.

Rest days may also be scheduled, and these can also be used as study days or skill practice days with the IDC staff, or you can go on dives with Thresher Shark Divers: usually you will get some FREE dives with your package!
