PADI IDC Staff Internship
PADI IDC Staff Internship
The IDC Staff Instructor course prepares candidates to teach the PADI Assistant Instructor course and to staff PADI instructor development programs. The training furthers teaching abilities and develops candidate’s evaluation and counseling skills through independent study, classroom sessions, guided evaluation training and an internship. Many experienced PADI instructors find this course one of the most rewarding courses to take as it brings you fully up to date with the PADI system and greatly improves mentoring and coaching abilities.
Candidates often inform us that they feel this course is a great reminder that there is no one “correct” way to teach and that candidates learn a lot of things that they might of forgotten since taking the IDC. Once candidates have successfully completed the IDC Staff Instructor Course they will be allowed to Independently teach and certify PADI Assistant Instructors at dive center or resorts that are at a minimum PADI Five Star Dive Center or Resorts, conduct IDC segments training segments while a PADI Course Director is available on premises for consultation, evaluate and critique instructor candidate knowledge development, confined water and open water teaching presentations, provide counseling and remedial training for instructor candidates and IDC Staff Instructor candidates, assist with instructor-level continuing education programs, such as PADI Specialty Instructor Training courses, observe the orientation and closing sessions of PADI Instructor Examinations.
