PADI Pro | IDC Staff Instructor


Looking to help usher in the next generation of instructors?

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. 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 the 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.

IDC Staff Instructor

The course consists of a training and evaluation program which is followed by candidates presenting components of the Assistant Instructor course. It is very flexible and the academic and confined water sessions are conducted by one of our Course Directors at our purpose built dive centre.

Academic modules are carried out in state of the art classrooms with the confined water sessions conducted in our heated pool. There is no open water work with this course. These courses are run weekly. After you have completed the Staff Instructor Course we encourage you to join us on our next IDC to put everything you learn into real world practice.
