As an IDC Staff Instructor you will be part of the instructor development process and become a valuable member of a teaching team.  This is a 7-day training program consisting of 11 required training sessions and the audit of a complete IDC.  The PADI IDC Staff Instructor course is designed to provide PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainers with the additional training necessary to staff PADI Instructor Development programs.  This program builds upon the IDC Staff Instructor candidate’s experience and abilities as a dive educator while concentrating on developing evaluation and counseling skills.  Through independent study, classroom sessions, and guided evaluation training, IDC Staff Instructor candidates learn to teach the PADI Assistant Instructor course and assist with Instructor Development programs.

Just as scuba divers look up to divemasters, instructor candidates really respect IDC Staff Instructors. As the name implies, IDC Staff Instructors assist with instructor training and share their wisdom and experience with new PADI leaders. Taking the IDC Staff Instructor course provides you with in-depth knowledge of the instructor development process and prepares you to shape the next generation of PADI Professionals. It’s also a great career move.

Master Scuba Diver Trainers (MSDTs) who are ready to be excellent role models and agree to use the PADI System and components in their entirety may enroll in an IDC Staff Instructor course.

    • The psychology of evaluation and counseling
