This course provides you with in-depth knowledge of the instructor development process and prepares you to shape the next generation of PADI Professionals.
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 Sugar Land Dive Center and learning from our Platinum honored Course Director, Phillip Hetherington, and his experienced team.
Master Scuba Diver Trainers (MSDT) 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.
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
Plus, you’ll get to audit an IDC or practice teaching many curriculum components.
Just as scuba divers look up to divemaster’s, 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 your Staff Instructor course with Sugar Land Dive Center provides you with in-depth knowledge of the new, revised instructor development process. You will be prepared to shape the next generation of PADI Professionals. It’s also a great career move.
PADI IDC Staff Instructors are qualified to independently teach Assistant Instructor courses, 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 components of the Instructor Development Course (IDCs) under the supervision of a PADI Course Director.
As with all of the courses offered by Sugar Land Dive Center, if you would like to complete your IDC Staff Instructor Course with our friendly Team in Cozumel, just let us know.
