PADI IDC STAFF INSTRUCTOR Wisdom and experience to share

Build upon your foundation as a PADI Instructor and join the Instructor Development process. You’ll benefit from taking your PADI IDC Staff Instructor course with Cozumel Dive  Academy and learning from our Platinum honored Course Director and his experienced team.

PADI IDC Staff Instructors are qualified to teach Assistant Instructor courses independently, thereby enhancing your employment prospects, earnings potential, and standing within the dive industry. Another benefit of becoming an IDC Staff Instructor is that you can assist or conduct Instructor Development Courses (IDCs) under the supervision of a PADI Course Director.

After a preassessment of your instructor-level knowledge of dive theory, 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


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

Master Scuba Diver Trainers (MSDT'S) who are ready to be excellent role models and agree to use the PADI System and components in their entirety may enroll in an IDC Staff Instructor Course.
