PADI IDC STAFF INSTRUCTOR Wisdom and experience to share

PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course with Cozumel Dive Academy

As scuba divers look up to divemasters, instructor candidates 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 provides in-depth knowledge of the instructor development process and prepares you to shape the next generation of PADI Professionals.

As an IDC Staff Instructor, you can independently teach PADI Assistant Instructor courses and assist with IDCs and other instructor-level continuing education courses.
