Assist with PADI Instructor Development Courses

The PADI IDC Staff Instructor course is designed to provide PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer with the additional training necessary to staff PADI Instructor Development programs.

This course builds upon the Staff Instructor candidate's experience and abilities as a dive educator while concentrating on developing evaluation and counseling skills. Through independent study, classroom sessions guided evaluation training and an internship, IDC Staff Instructor candidates learn to teach the PADI Assistant Instructor course and assist with instructor development programs.

A further goal is to familiarize the IDC Staff Instructor candidate with PADI IDC/OWSI standards, curriculum, and procedures and develop the IDC Staff Instructor candidate's presentation skills to a role-model level. This is getting even more important now, since PADI changed the IDC curriculum in 2009. Updated IDC Staff Instructors will further on be allowed to teach PADI Assistant Instructor courses.
