The IDC Staff Instructor course trains Master Scuba Diver Trainers to act as assistants during instructor-level training courses. The course overviews the entire PADI Instructor Development programme and requires candidates to participate in evaluation training, demonstrate role model teaching skills and dive theory knowledge.
The Fun Part
PADI IDC Staff Instructors are an integral part of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC), and you what you will learn will set the stage for moving on to PADI Course Director. During your training you will watch and learn as an experienced PADI Cousre Director presents topics in the IDC - something you will be able to do after certification. We will also show you how we put a focus on neutral buoyancy teaching throughout the programme.
