Knowledge Development Presentation
The knowledge development presentation is a classroom presentation given by you, demonstrating your ability to use the PADI materials to assist students who are having difficulty understanding a concept in their dive course knowledge section. At the IE Orientation, you will be assigned a question from a PADI course knowledge review or quiz to answer. This could be from the Open Water Diver course, Advanced Open Water Diver course, Rescue Diver course, Divemaster course, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Project AWARE, or AWARE coral reef conservation specialty courses.
You will use the PADI materials including lesson guides, manuals, and digital products such as the PADI apps and eLearning to teach your fellow IE candidates. The presentation should be 4-8 minutes long depending on the depth of the content you are required to teach. As well as using the materials to teach the concept you will also be required to interact with your students and give real-life examples of when they will use the information.
During the PADI IDC, you will be taught how best to approach and prepare for this presentation so you should be able to score highly.
You will need to score over 3.5/5.0 in this section to pass. If you don’t manage to gain that on your first attempt, you are allowed another attempt with a new question.
