Build upon your foundation as a PADI Instructor and join the Instructor Development process. You’ll benefit from taking your PADI IDC Staff Instructor course in our PADI Career Development Centre.
PADI IDC Staff Instructors are qualified to teach Assistant Instructor Courses independently, thereby enhancing your employment prospects, earnings potential, and professional standing within the dive industry.
Another benefit of becoming an IDC Staff Instructor is you can assist or conduct Instructor Development Courses (IDCs) under the supervision of a PADI Course Director.
The PADI IDC Staff Instructor course is comprised of a two-day pre-assessment followed by auditing one of our IDCs in its entirety for nine days. In the pre-assessment, you will brush up on your dive theory, standards and changes, refresh your evaluation skills and receive presentations related to Instructor Development. While auditing the IDC, you’ll refresh and take your own notes on the IDC curriculum and work with our Course Directors and IDC Staff Instructors on evaluation sessions and learn how to grade candidates as they present their teaching assignments.
