As an IDC Staff Instructor, you can independently teach PADI Assistant Instructor courses as well as assist with IDCs and other instructor-level continuing education courses. 

What is it?

Just as scuba divers look up to PADI Divemasters, PADI Instructor candidates really respect PADI 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.

After a pre-assessment of your instructor-level knowledge of dive theory, exemplary dive skills and role-model presentation techniques, you’ll participate in these sessions:

  • Instructor development standards, procedures and curriculum

  • How to organize and conduct the PADI Assistant Instructor course

  • The psychology of evaluation and counselling

  • Evaluating knowledge development, confined water and open water teaching presentations
