IDC Staff Instructor
What will I learn?
IDC Staff Instructors assist with instructor training and share their wisdom and experience to shape the next generation of PADI Professionals.
After an assessment of your instructor-level knowledge of dive theory, exemplary dive skill demonstrations and role-model presentation techniques, you’ll cover 4 main topics:
Instructor development standards, procedures and curriculum
How to organise and conduct the PADI Assistant Instructor course
Psychology of evaluation and counselling
Evaluating knowledge development, confined water and open water teaching presentations
How do I start?
There are two ways to complete this course – 3 Day express or full IDC audit. The express option is by far the most popular and allows candidates to staff an IDC immediately after certification and start earning credits towards Master Instructor rating.
We can run this course on demand, on a schedule that suits you. You will be required to participate in some theory presentations, in a combination of in-person and remote sessions, along with coming to a couple of our pool sessions for the practical elements of this course.
Course costs includes materials, the application fee upon completion is paid directly to PADI.
