What do I do on a PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course?

There are two ways that you can do a PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course.

 

1. You can take a 3 day PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course

To be honest, I really love the 3 day version of the PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course. We spend 3 days discussing the psychology of how people learn. Each of the days is dedicated to show people how to teach in three areas

1. In the Classroom

2. In Confined water

3. In Open water

You’ll learn how to evaluate people in each of these areas, but more importantly you’ll learn how to critique them.
During this course, you’ll learn the true value of the “Power of Words”.
Every single person who has attended the PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course has told me how valuable the course has been to them, and how much it has changed their own teaching.

Of course, once you have taken the 3 day PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course, it makes sense to then attend another PADI IDC as a certified PADI IDC Staff Instructor. You can then see how all of the techniques are put into place, and you’ll see how quickly the IDC Candidates gain the confidence to give effective and professional presentations.

2. Sit in on a PADI Instructor Development Course

You’ll start your course by joining the PADI IDC Candidates on their course. Even though you’ve done your IDC before,

the teaching techniques for teaching in the Classroom, Pool and Open Water will bound to have changed.
I’m continually doing my own research into how people learn. I study the latest teaching psychology and incorporate it into my courses.

If you’ve already done an IDC with me, you’ll know that my IDCs are filled with tips and tricks to get your student to learn quickly.  Instructors are encouraged to “Teach less”  and instead “Allow people to learn”

After the first few days, you’ll have been updated with the latest teaching methods. Then you’ll learn how to evaluate the IDC candidates.  You’ll learn how to score them, and you’ll learn how to critique them.

The way that people are spoken to is very important, and linked very closely with the speed of their progression.
You’ll be working alongside the IDC candidates, giving them encouragement and support.

How much does it cost, how to I book?

 

The cost of the course is either £345 for the 3 day version in the UK, or Euro 600 for the full IDC version in Egypt.  Contact me with any questions and I’ll help you all along the way.
