The IDC Staff Instructor course is designed to provide a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer with the additional training necessary to staff PADI IDC’s. This training furthers teaching abilities, through independent study and classroom sessions, and water skills are brought up to IDC demonstration quality. The first segment of the course is conducted prior to an actual IDC, and candidates then participate in an entire IDC and develop evaluation and counseling skills through guided training.
