PADI Staff Instructor

The PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course is designed to provide PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainers with a sound foundation and the additional training they need to accompany and conduct PADI Instructor training programs.

This program builds on the experience IDC Staff candidates have gained during their training. Great emphasis is placed on the development of good assessment skills and the effective guidance and counselling of participants in PADI Instructor Courses. Through self-study, theoretical instruction and multiple evaluation of teaching samples from candidates of a real IDC, IDC Staff Instructor candidates learn how to teach the PADI Assistant Instructor Program and how to effectively assist instructor training. In order to optimally support our IDC Staff Instructor candidates, we accept a maximum of two Staff Candidates per IDC!
