Padi staff instructor

Who should take this course?

Just as scuba divers look up to divemasters, instructor candidates really respect PADI IDC Staff Instructors. As the name implies, PADI IDC Staff Instructors assist with instructor training and share their wisdom and experience with new PADI leaders. Taking the IDC Staff Instructor course at Crystal Waves provides you with in-depth knowledge of the instructor development process and prepares you to shape the next generation of PADI Professionals. It’s also a great career move.

Master Scuba Diver Trainers (MSDTs) who are ready to be excellent role models and agree to use the PADI System and components in their entirety may enroll at Crystal Waves for our next PADI IDC Staff Instructor course.

What will you learn?

After a preassessment of your instructor-level knowledge of dive theory, exemplary dive skills and role-model presentation techniques, you’ll participate in these sessions:

Instructor development standards, procedures and curriculum
How to organize and conduct the PADI Assistant Instructor course
The psychology of evaluation and counseling
Evaluating knowledge development, confined water and open water teaching presentations
Plus, you’ll get to audit an IDC or practice teaching many curriculum components.

As an IDC Staff Instructor, you can independently teach PADI Assistant Instructor courses as well as assist with IDCs and other instructor-level continuing education courses.
