Both options are available. Dan Robinson (Course Director) with Claude Kelly helping out from time to time plan to run the IDCevery 2 weeks.

If you are limited in time, you could still complete all performance requirements in as little as 2 weeks. Having a min. of 40 dives is required prior to the start of the DM course, and 60 logged dives are required before certification.
The divemaster course usually runs as an internship though, and is unlimited in time and dives.You complete the DM course at your own pace and will have theory lectures on physiology, physics, decompression theory and equipment as well. Another lecture about Divemaster Conducted programs will introduce you to many different PADI Experience programs.
