This two-part course is designed to provide you with additional training so you can comfortably and professionally staff PADI IDCs, act as a mentor and be a fountain of knowledge to Instructor Development Candidates. Holding the PADI Staff Instructor rating will also further your employability within the diving industry as many dive centre management positions require this level of training and experience.
The first part of this Course is a 2-day course conducted by our experienced Course Director Team and includes a number of classroom presentations and in water presentations covering both confined and open water skills.
You also take the five theory and the general standards and procedures exams to sharpen your knowledge. This portion of the course is usually conducted a few days prior to our scheduled IDCs.
The second part is the practical application of the skills and knowledge, through staffing one of our current IDCs.
During this section of the course each candidate learns valuable hands-on teaching experience working closely alongside our highly experienced Course Directors and gets to see an IDC from a totally different perspective.
