The StarGuard Elite Instructor Development Course (IDC) is designed to prepare StarGuard Elite Instructors to provide a quality education program for lifeguards, using experiential activities based upon adult learning principles, and an emphasis on understanding and utilizing effective facilitation skills.
The Instructor Development process includes an online self-study course and a face-to-face course conducted by SGE Faculty. Instructor candidates will review proper rescue techniques that can be used in a variety of aquatic settings and the most effective ways to educate new and experienced aquatic rescue personnel.
