IDC Staff Instructor course starts the 3rd of February 2023
The IDC Staff Instructor course is taught in 2 different ways. You walk along an IDC or you do a simulation together with other IDC Staff candidates. The course can be taken in Sharm and/or the Netherlands. In the simulation, the course takes place from 3 candidates and a flexible schedule, such as a weekend course, is possible. Before the IDC there is an extra day for IDC Staff candidates to familiarize you with the Course Director Manual. You will also learn how to score IDC candidates that day.

What is an IDC Audit
Are you an IDC Staff Instructor and want to become a Master Instructor or just gain more experience? Then do an internship during an IDC. With an IDC Audit you fully participate in an IDC. You are always welcome to participate and you will learn from Chris the intricacies of scoring IDC candidates and participate. Just listening in does not yield any results. Chris knows, you want to grow further and you do that during her Audits. Who knows, one day, you might want to become a Course Director yourself.
