PADI IDC Staff Instructor

If you’re serious about professional scuba instruction, and want to be more than an instructor (perhaps work in PADI Instructor Development Centers/Career Development Centers, own your own PADI dive center/resort, or progress to becoming a PADI Course Director yourself), then the Staff Instructor course is the next logical step for you as a PADI Instructor. PADI IDC Staff Instructors are PADI Instructors moving towards instructor-level training or teaching the Instructor Development Course (IDC). IDC Staff Instructors can independently train and certify PADI Assistant Instructors as well as help train PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.
