PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course IDCSI Squalo Divers
This course provides you with in-depth knowledge of the instructor development process, and prepares you to shape the next generation of PADI Professionals.
PADI IDC staff instructors are PADI instructors moving toward instructor-level training, or teaching the Instructor Development Course (IDC). IDC staff instructors can independently train and certify PADI Assistant Instructors, as well as help to train PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.
The PADI IDC staff instructor program is designed to provide PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainers (MSDT) with the additional training necessary to staff PADI instructor development programs. This program builds upon your experience and abilities as a dive educator, while concentrating on developing evaluation and counseling skills.
Through independent study, classroom sessions, guided evaluation training and an internship, you will learn to teach the PADI assistant instructor program and assist with instructor development programs.
The staff instructor course consists of the following: 1-2 days theory & practical learning with the course director, learning the evaluation process, and perfecting teaching skills. The candidate will then sit in on an entire IDC, evaluating students alongside the Squalo Diver Course Director.
A qualified IDC staff instructor is certified to teach PADI Assistant Instructor Course and assist in instructor-level training. Topics covered are the same as an IDC, plus additional training in knowledge development, confined water and open water evaluations. Personal skills are also brought up to IDC demonstration quality.Ask for Our IDCSI Schedule
