Level III – Advanced Instructor Development Course

Level 3 consists of the 40-hour Phase I and a 16-hour Phase II teach back session. These sessions provide additional instructor development skills while designing or enhancing a module of instruction they currently teach or are designated to teach. IDI Level 3 Certification is required to begin the Level 4 Master Instructor Certification Course. This Phase I Course will reinforce and provide the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills learned during IDI Level 1 and 2 training. The Phase II Teach Back will provide an opportunity to demonstrate those skills in a practical manner.

Those attending this program will work on an actual module of instruction the instructor/student currently teaches or will teach. They should bring all course material related to the selected module as well as the goal and expanded course outline for the course their module is included within (their module should typically be a portion of a larger course- for example the Emergency Management module (LD 43) that is a portion of the Regular Basic Course).

Many classroom activities require the use of a computer. A personal laptop computer and the ability to access email is required. The classroom will have wireless connectivity. If you only have agency email and cannot access it while in travel status, please establish a free email account prior to attendance (Gmail, Yahoo, etc).
