PADI Staff Instructor Training

Already a Master Scuba Diver Trainer and looking to progress and teach more people? Becoming a PADI Staff Instructor allows you to start teaching fellow instructors. As a Staff Instructor you are able to fully teach the Assistant Instructor part of the IDC, or independently, and assist on the OWSI part of the IDC under supervision of a Course Director.

This is an experiential program in that you will be learning by observation and by assisting both the Instructor Candidates with their studies and the Course Director with grading and giving feedback to the Candidates. You are also required to sit the IDC exams again, as well as complete Rescue and skill circuit evaluation, to assure that you are teaching to the correct standards.
