PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course

Teach Assistant Instructors, assist on Instructor courses and enhance your professional scuba diving career

If you'd like to advance your level of professional certification, and take your dive career to a higher level than the PADI IDC Staff Instructor course is the next step after the PADI MSDT rating.

At Splash Dive Center in Placencia, Belize, we offer quality and personalised instruction for IDC Staff Instructor candidates with PADI Course Director Patty Ramirez. In addition to being a PADI Course Director, Patty is also a dive center owner, and community leader in the Southern Belize diving industry.

After your course you will be able to independently train and certify PADI Assistant Instructors as well as help train PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.

This course is for all PADI MSDT's who wish to take their training to the next level, and you will attend a 2 day pre-assessment, prior to enrolling on a complete IDC and auditing the course from a staff's perspective. You'll learn how to evaluate candidate presentations, give effective critiques, conduct the ‘Assistant Instructor’ course and present curriculum from the PADI IDC.

You will need the following materials in addition to the pre-requisite materials, and a full set of scuba diving equipment.

  • PADI Course Director Manual
  • Confined Water Presentation Evaluation Slate
  • Open Water Presentation Evaluation Slate
  • All IDC required materials

Another benefit of becoming an IDC Staff Instructor is that you can assist or conduct Instructor Development Courses (IDC's) under the supervision of a PADI Course Director.

Contact us for more information on our IDC Staff scheduling, and costs, and why not arrive a few days early to take advantage of Placencia's beautiful dive conditions, and coral reefs.
