  • Evaluating knowledge development, confined water and open water teaching presentations

You also have the option to audit an entire IDC to gain more practice and experience with evaluating and counselling. This involves participating in all 20 IDC curriculum presentations, and evaluating candidate presentations in the classroom, swimming pool and out in the ocean.

As a PADI IDC Staff Instructor, you are certified to independently teach the PADI Assistant Instructor course as well as assist a PADI Course Director on the PADI Instructor Development Course and other instructor-level continuing education courses such as PADI Specialty Instructor training programs.

Our Staff Instructor course runs in conjunction with IDCs and really are a great way to refresh and renew your teaching practices. We will also overview standards for assistant instructor and IDC candidates plus review how to schedule and market an assistant instructor course.

The PADI IDC Dive Centres that we choose to work with are the most successful in their regions. Be part of that success and start your career on the right track. That is a real job opportunity!
