The IDC is not only a stressful week for the instructor candidates! The PADI Instructor Development Course also gives existing instructors the chance to further their qualifications with the opportunity to gain additional qualifications.
Markus, one of our current instructors on Kuredu, is doing the IDC Staff Instructor Course. A Staff Instructor has the opportunity to get involved and assist on the Instructor Courses, and is able to teach the Assistant Instructor part of the course.
This is one more step up the PADI ladder, and one more step closer to becoming a Course Director and running the Instructor Courses themselves.
Markus jumped in and joined the group today and cracked on with the first set of theory exams, together with the Instructor candidates.
We wish Markus all the best with the course and hope he at least remembers the mango!
