Continuing your education, as you know, never ends.
PADI Instructors learn valuable lessons from other seasoned PADI Instructors as they impart their experience and knowledge. As a PADI IDC Staff Instructor, your title denotes your seniority in PADI diver education and our dedicated Downbelow Go PRO Instructor Development Team led by Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann (Instructor Trainers themselves) will guide you through the course to your eventual success.
During Instructor Development Courses (IDCs), PADI Staff Instructors work alongside and assisting 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.
