We have a large team of supporting PADI IDC Staff Instructors, PADI Speciality Instructors and PADI Open Water Instructors. Our entire team at some point completed their IDC Course here at Downbelow and our team have a variety of speciality instructor ratings to their portfolio of qualifications from Digital Under Water Photography, Diver Propulsion Vehicle, Deep Diver, Enriched Air and many more.
During Instructor Development Courses (IDCs), PADI Staff Instructors work alongside and assist PADI Course Directors, in a similar way to that of a certified assistant (PADI Divemasters and Assistant Instructors) for a PADI Instructor. A PADI IDC Staff Instructors role can be organising, evaluating and presenting any number of components with the IDC course. The role of a PADI IDC Staff Instructor during an Instructor Development Course (IDC) is to assist in training candidates attending the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC), while at the same time expanding their own instructor training abilities.
