Course Snapshot

.Your Staff Instructor course begins 2 days before the IDC where you will take part in your pre-assessment, course presentations and evaluation training. This preparation ensures you have a real understanding of the IDC course structure and the role of a Staff Instructor, to best prepare you for being a mentor to IDC candidates.

Every day during your course you’ll benefit from personal briefings and debriefings from our Course Director to enhance your learning experience and learn as much as possible from the course. 

Afterwards you will have the credentials and confidence to work full time on IDCs as an assistant to a Course Director.
