The IDC Staff Instructor course elevates PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainers to the role of mentor for the next generation of PADI Instructors.

By their actions and professionalism, PADI IDC Staff Instructors assist IDC candidates in developing proper positive attitudes and influence how they conduct themselves as PADI Professionals.  Fulfilling the role of a mentor, they counsel candidates about their skills, tutor candidates about PADI standards, and coach them into developing more effective teaching presentations.
