Are you a confident, effective and efficientSM PADI IDC Staff Instructor?  You should gain more real hands-on IDC staffing experience, by mentoring and matching your evaluation scores with me in class and in the water.  New instructors may train PADI Divemasters, but it is only at the IDC Staff level that you learn how to score properly.  IDC staffing sets you apart from run-of-the-mill PADI Staff Instructors.

A Staff Instructor could be a brand-new PADI Member, with as few as 25 PADI student certs. who might not have ever staffed a PADI Instructor Development Course.  The PADI IDC Staff Course is often trained with role-playing students, by having candidates, among other things, give the presentations from the PADI Assistant Instructor Course.  Of course PADI Staff candidates will have passed their own PADI IDC.  If they did audit a real PADI IDC during their IDC Staff Course, they still cannot have their names entered on the PADI Course Report Form for that IDC.

To apply for the PADI MI rating, the member must have, among other things.

  • Been a PADI Instructor for a min. of two years.
  • Certified a min. of five PADI Assistant Instructors; or staffed two complete IDCs; or three AIs plus one IDC.


Acceptance on to a PADI CDTC is most competitive and you must have staffed a min. of two complete IDCs in order even to apply, but in practice successful applicants have done far more (I had done 19 and got in first time).  MIs who apply get ranked by the number of PADI divers that they have certified.  You get a max. of eight credits per Course Report Form (up to a max. of 50 to apply for MI, with no max. for CD).  These credits also count as “advanced” for which you need a min. of 50 for MI.  Your continuing education conversion ratio will be calculated for the CDTC.  This is, excl. all EFR, “advanced certs” divided by total certs.  PADI targets a min of 70 per cent. (mine was 82 per cent.).

Your PADI CDTC application must also be accompanied by a letter of verification from each CD with whom you have staffed IDCs, stating exactly what you did on each course.  You also need two references from PADI members, normally the CDs with whom you staffed.
