The "Godfather" of IDC!

With 20+ years of experience, and over 5000 instructor level certifications, Mark Soworka truly is the "Godfather" of IDC's.

And after all that time, Mark still remains an ambassador whose passion for the ocean, diving, and educating dive professionals is not only clearly obvious, but infectious!

After completing the IDC with Mark, I am a better diver, learner, and person thanks to his ability to get the most out of his candidates. He’s humble, teaches from personal experience, and is genuinely excited to show you the way.

As for the IDC, it’s no piece of cake! You will be tired and stressed, you may even curse, cry and pull your hair out in frustration, but you will LEARN, LAUGH & MEET FRIENDS FOR LIFE! If you follow Marks’s recipe, you’ll not only pass the IE with flying colors, you will be far better equipped to launch your new careers as dive professionals.

I wanted to learn from the best, and I did with Mark Soworka and Dive-Careers.com.
Thanks Mark, we love ya! Ben & Nicole.

So much fun!

The IDC with Mark was the best PADI course so far for me!! It was structured and every day was well planned out. There was still time to sit down with Mark during the day if there was something you needed to work extra on, which was cool. Mark made the two weeks fun and relaxed and I felt very well prepared for the IE. I can definitely recommend it!! Thank you so much!

Great job prepping for the IE

Mark did an outstanding job prepping me for the IE. The lectures we received were informative and very interesting. Our practical preparation (open and confined) was spot on. I found Mark's feedback to be exactly what I needed to hear. I would highly recommend Mark for IE preparation. I can say that after spending the preparation time with Mark, I was completely at ease while at the exam. Thanks for all the help Mark.
