PADI IDC Staff Instructors are PADI Scuba Diving Instructors moving towards instructor-level training or teaching the Instructor Development Course (IDC). PADI IDC Staff Instructors can independently train and certify PADI Assistant Instructors as well as help train PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.

The IDC Staff Instructor course is designed to provide a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) with the additional training necessary to staff PADI IDC’s. The course is conducted  on Gili Air over 14 days with two days of training followed by an actual PADI Dive Instructor training (PADI IDC). Candidates participate in an entire PADI Instructor Development Course and develop evaluation and counseling skills.

A qualified PADI IDC Staff Instructor is certified to teach PADI Assistant Instructor courses and assist in instructor-level training. Topics covered are the same as a PADI IDC, plus additional training in knowledge development, confined water and open water evaluations. Personal skills are also brought up to PADI IDC demonstration quality.
