PADI Instructor Development CourseÂ April 2014
The objective of the Padi Instructor Development Course (PADI IDC) is to fully prepare candidates to become aÂ PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI). The Padi Instructor Development CourseÂ consists of presentations, confined and open waterÂ workshops, discussions and Padi IDC candidate teaching presentations in a classroom.
The FULL Padi IDC has two parts; the Padi Assistant Instructor course (PADI AI) and the Open Water ScubaÂ Instructor course (PADI OWSI). Once these have been completed, candidates will then attend the Padi InstructorÂ Examination (PADI IE), which is held over two days.
The Padi AI course introduces the PADI system of educational methodology and develops the Padi IDC candidates teachingÂ abilities in the classroom, pool and open water. The Padi Assistant Instructor concentrates on the courses that Padi AssistantÂ Instructors can teach. Once completed, candidates can then enroll on an Padi OWSI course.
The Padi OWSI course further develops candidatesâ€™ teaching abilities and skills. The complete PADI educationalÂ system is explored and candidates are prepared for the Padi IE that follows at the end of the Padi Instructor Development Course. OnceÂ a full Padi Instructor Development Course isÂ completed , the candidatesÂ can attend an Padi IE.
During the Padi IE, candidates are evaluated on their skills, knowledge and teaching abilities. Successful candidates will become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
