The IDC Staff Instructor course is designed to provide a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer with the additional training necessary to staff PADI IDC’s. This training furthers teaching abilities, through independent study and classroom sessions, and water skills are brought up to IDC demonstration quality.
The first segment of the course is conducted prior to an actual IDC, and candidates then participate in an entire IDC and develop evaluation and counseling skills through guided training.
A qualified IDC Staff Instructor is certified to independently teach PADI Assistant Instructor courses and assist in instructor-level training. Personal scuba skills are also brought up to IDC demonstration quality
NOTE: All IDC Staff Instructor candidates are also required to have all materials required of instructor candidates as well as current student materials from the PADI Open Water Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, PADI Rescue Diver, and PADI Divemaster.
Our course includes classroom, pool sessions, and open water dives. All course materials are additional. Please call us for IDC Staff Instructor Course details.
Certification Awarded: Upon successful completion of the IDC Staff Instructor course, a candidate will become a PADI IDC Staff Instructor.
IDC Staff Instructors may choose to audit an IDC in order to gain valuable and required experience in the PADI Instructor Development process.
There is no certification for the audit. Upon full audit of a Florida Keys Dive Center IDC, course completion paperwork is submitted to PADI.
