The linchpin in an ITC.
In the Staff Instructor course you will be taken to a high professional level. You must have a high degree of confidence in what you know, because you will be challenged by ITC (Instructor Training Course) students, certified divers and colleagues. Therefore the information you convey must always be correct. This training is always given during an ITC, so that the candidate Staff Instructor can experience this training in all its aspects at staff level. A candidate Staff Instructor assists, guides and evaluates during an ITC.
What we are going to do
The IDD Staff Instructor in training begins one day before the Instructor Training Course (ITC).
During this day the starting level is tested:
- Theory by means of the Staff Instructor Final Exam (SIFE)
- Skills through the Staff Instructor skills circuit
- Teaching theory through a microteaching session assigned by the Course Director
- Practice teaching through a (microteaching) skills lesson assigned by the Course Director
- Rescue skills through a rescue exercise specified by the Course Director
The Staff Instructor in training assists, guides and evaluates during one Instructor Training Courses (ITCs). During these ITC's you will learn how to supervise and evaluate the Instructor candidates. You will also conduct lessons and give briefings and debriefings during the ITC. Under supervision of the Course Director, you will also evaluate the participants in the ITC.
