CMAS Instructor Examinations
The CMAS Instructor Examination is held on the 2 days following the IDC. An independent instructor examiner from CMAS headquarters conducts it. By the time you reach the IE, you will have covered in your IDC all you need to know to pass with confidence. Each instructor candidate is tested on their ability to teach in the classroom. The confined water and the open water watermanship is also tested by means of a rescue evaluation, and a demonstration of 5 skills. Theory knowledge is assessed by the completion of 5 written exams in physics, physiology, equipment, general skills and environment, and the recreational dive planner. Knowledge of the CMAS system is tested by an ‘open book’ exam on CMAS General Standards and Procedures.
