IDC STAFF INSTRUCTOR Wisdom and experience to share

The PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course with DIVEWORLD

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.

The Fun Part

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 Instructors.

Many of the 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 Dive Center or you want to open a dive shop or resort.

What You Learn

  • You become a master of instructor-level dive theory, knowledge development teaching presentations and confined water teaching presentations
  • You audit a complete IDC as a staff member (preferred) rather than as a student, or work through the PADI Assistant Instructor Course presentations.
  • You will work closely with our PADI Course Director, picking up advice and direction in counciling and coaching students throughout the IDC process.

What You Can Teach

In addition to all the courses you can teach as a PADI Instructor, you can also:

  • Teach PADI Assistant Instructor courses.
  • Assist PADI Course Directors in conducting the PADI Instructor Development Course.
  • Assist PADI Course Directors in conducting instructor -level continuing education.
  • Attend IE orientations & presentations.


The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all the basic scuba equipment and some scuba accessories such as a dive slate, dive knife, compass, dive watch, etc.

It is highly recommended that you own all of your own scuba equipment, as familiarity with personal gear improves general scuba diving skills.

For all your course materials and equipment, contact DIVEWORLD.


You must be

  • a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer in status
  • at least 18 years old
