IDC Staff Instructors assist with instructor training and share their wisdom and experience with new PADI leaders. Taking the IDC Staff Instructor course provides you with in-depth knowledge of the instructor development process and prepares you to shape the next generation of PADI Professionals. It’s also a great career move.

We offer two types of IDC Staff courses – this option is an intensive 4 days where we cover all aspects of the syllabus and spend several hours in the water practising evaluation and performing skills.


Master Scuba Diver Trainers (MSDTs) who are ready to be excellent role models and agree to use the PADI System and components in their entirety may enrol in an IDC Staff Instructor course.

After a preassessment of your instructor-level knowledge of dive theory, exemplary dive skills and role-model presentation techniques, you’ll participate in these sessions:

  • Instructor development standards, procedures and curriculum

  • How to organise and conduct the PADI Assistant Instructor course

  • The psychology of evaluation and counselling

  • Evaluating knowledge development, confined water and open water teaching presentations


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


Prices Exclude Fees directly payable to PADI and Materials (IDC Staff crew pack)
