idc staff instructor course
As a PADI Staff Instructor, you will assist with instructor training and share your wisdom and experience with new PADI professionals. Just as scuba divers look up to Divemasters, so do instructor candidates respect IDC Staff Instructors.
A PADI Staff Instructor course prepares you to be able to independently conduct PADI Assistant Instructor courses and staff IDCs, helping to shape the new generation of dive professionals and making you an invaluable asset to any 5-star resort or center.
* We include the costs of PADI materials separately in our professional courses as candidates may wish to personally purchase in advanced. If you wish to purchase the materials through us, then please let us know with enough time to have them shipped
