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.
