Learn how to teach instructors!

PADI IDC Staff Instructor (IDCSI) Course

Learn how to teach IDC students how to teach people how to blow bubbles! Yes you read that right…

With the PADI IDC Staff Instructor course you will learn and work alongside our Course Director and Ninja Go Pro team as they help you learn how to teach instructor candidates to become PADI Instructors. For those who want to take the next steps in their career while opening more job opportunities and at the same time developing & refining their teaching skills, this is the course for you. The program starts with a day of workshops and presentations with our veteran Course Director with over 20 years experience including both teaching and examining IDC’s for PADI. Then you will be assisting on a full Instructor Development Course from the first day of the IDC prep course all the way through to cheering on your candidates at the Instructor Exams and celebrating with them when they receive their instructor credentials.  Throughout the IDC you will assist, present and give evaluations & feedback to new instructor candidates, working side by side with our Course Director and team to develop the skills they need to become PADI Instructors. But more importantly you will learn how to help your students grow, overcome obstacles, push through on their way to becoming an instructor. For us, it is one of the most rewarding courses as you get to see and assist your students go through every moment of becoming an instructor. Sharing in their joy when they pass the IE is a reward unlike any other course on the planet.

The best Instructors with the most complete programs for the courses! I have learned so much and enjoyed every single moment. The Divemaster program was super unique because besides learning the normal PADI Divemaster, they added workshops about UW photo, working in remote areas, sustainability and so much more. The Ninja team is just amazing, all of them are super professional, responsible and very fun!

Thank you for all I’ve learnt during my stay in Cabo! I’m so glad I found Dive Ninjas! The course as not just some more workshops than a usual Divemaster, it was so much more and I’ve learned so much with all of the team. And not just diving either, I’ve learned so many things that I know will be super useful later! Thank you for doing all that you do, the high level teaching and raising awareness. Keep rocking the diving industry Ninjas!

My favorite part was all the conservation workshops Dive Ninjas adds into their Divemaster program! I felt like I learned so much more than I would of if I went elsewhere.
