To enroll on the PADI IDC Staff Instructor course you must be a teaching status PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and Emergency First Response Instructor. You must agree to conduct all levels of diver training consistent with the standards and philosophy outlined in the PADI Instructor Manual, PADI’s Guide to Teaching and the PADI Course Director Manual, and, agree to use the PADI System and its components in their entirety.
Who this course is for
Experienced instructors that feel they have more to offer, IDC staff instructors can assist course directors with the PADI Instructor Development Course, and associated programs, and conduct the PADI Assistant Instructor course independently.
What you can expect
There are two ways to earn this certification, the first (and recommended) is to assist on a complete IDC, and complete the requirements for the staff instructor course at the same time, this gives the candidate the most exposure to the course director, and the opportunity to observe IDC candidates in training. The second option is to conduct an entire Assistant Instructor course under the supervision of a course director.
