During the PADI IDC, you will take part in a number of workshops to learn the art of teaching students and setting up your teaching scenarios for safety and accomplishing the skills. You will take part in presentations from our PADI Course Director Mark and PADI IDC Staff Instructors, about the skills of teaching, marketing, and working in the scuba diving industry. There will be a number of pool sessions in which you will take part in graded presentations when you are put in the scenario of an instructor teaching a skill to a number of students. You will also give short academic presentations on set questions to your PADI Course Director. Finally, there are a couple of days in the ocean when you focus on being graded on teaching the open water segments of diver courses.
There is also the option to complete the Emergency First Response First Aid and CPR Instructor program during the course which is necessary to be able to teach the Rescue course when you are a certified instructor. Following on from the course we can look at getting you some PADI Specialty Instructor ratings to move you up the PADI Instructional ladder.
