PADI Staff Instructor Course

Overview

Koh Tao Stingray

As a seasoned PADI Instructor, you have wisdom and experience to share with up-and-coming PADI leaders. And, you know that continuing your education never ends. As an Instructor Development Course (IDC) Staff Instructor, you help bring up the next generation of PADI Instructors while gaining in-depth instructor-trainer knowledge.

Koh Tao Fish

Because IDC Staff Instructors are an integral part of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC), you set the stage for moving on to PADI Course Director as you present topics in the IDC and help shape PADI Divemasters and Assistant Instructors into PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. Many dive center or resort management positions require this level of Instructor experience and training, making this an important step if you are considering a career in a Dive Center or you want to open a dive shop or resort. You are also required to purchase the PADI Course Director manual when taking this course which is 18,500 baht.


What you Learn

You become a master of instructor-level dive theory, knowledge development teaching presentations and confined water teaching presentations. You also audit a complete IDC as a staff member rather than as a student.

  • You will learn to give Diving Instructor presentations from the IDC Curriculum which means you are able to teach all the way unto Assistant instructor level.
