About ITDA Instructor Trainer
The Instructor trainer level has always been a senior instructor level for those with a great deal of experience with specialist skills and knowledge in training divers.
Many agencies have different titles, for example PADI the Professional Association of Diving Instructors have a level they call "STAFF INSTUCTOR", which is essentially an Instructor trainer as they help / assist Course Directors with Instructor Development Courses. They must then attend a CD Course to become a course director.
ITDA Instructor trainer offers a clear and simple route to our Course Director level, as an upgrade path based on experience and attendance at an ITDA Course Director Course Programs or attendence at a Course Director Assessor workshop. Which are held four (4) times a year in various ITDA Regions.
