PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course Schedule

2 days preparation | 1 full IDC

Our PADI IDC Staff Instructor course runs over 18 days total. To start off your PADI IDC Staff Instructor course, our PADI Course Director will pre-assess your instructor-level knowledge of dive theory, exemplary dive skills and role-model presentation techniques. You will then participate in the following training sessions: Instructor development standards, procedures and curriculum; organisation and conduction of the PADI Assistant Instructor course; the psychology of evaluation and counseling; evaluation of knowledge development, confined water and open water teaching presentations. After these 2 days you will audit an entire IDC. This involves participating in all 20 IDC curriculum presentations, and evaluating candidate presentations in the classroom, swimming pool and out in the ocean. The last 2 days of the program are the PADI IE (Instructor Examination), where you will attend the orientation and closing ceremony.

PREREQUISITES:

PADI MSDT Certification

 To become a PADI IDC Staff Instructor you need to be certified as PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) and be ready to show excellent role model behaviour, agreeing to use the PADI System and components in their entirety.

NO HEALTH PROBLEMS

 Please read the Medical Questionnaire carefully. The purpose of this form is to find out if you should be examined by a doctor before participating in diver training. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of your physician prior to engaging in dive activities. As not all conditions can be cleared on Koh Tao we strongly recommend to see a physician prior to your arrival.
