The IDC Staff Course is in two parts:
On the first two days, the preassessment phase, you will sit a Dive Theory Exam (yep same as your IDC: Physics, Physiology, RDP etc) and also an open book Standards Exam.
Two days of preassessment with your Course Director
Audit of an entire IDC
You will spend time with your PADI Course Director Chris learning about the PADI IDC Philosophy, IDC candidate presentation grading and evaluation and probably the most difficult part: IDC candidate counselling.
You will also give an IDC Confined Water Presentation, conduct and be evaluated on the 20 skills of the PADI skill circuit and give a Prescriptive Teaching Classroom presentation. The second half consists of auditing an entire PADI IDC, evaluating each candidate presentation along side your Course Director.
