If you are going to become a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor, you may as well become one of the best Instructors you can be with the help of the PADI IDC Gili Islands and Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod.
The PADI IDC Indonesia takes place at Trawangan Dive; the only PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center (CDC) in Gili Trawangan and the first ever to be established in the Gili Islands. The Dive Center its self is physically one of the largest dive centers in Gili Trawangan and is one of the biggest PADI certifiers in Indonesia. For Divemasters taking their Instructor training this means that they will not only benefit from the world class training facilities, but will benefit from a highly experienced team of Instructors.
The program is conducted entirely by Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod who has a reputation for success and excellence when it comes to training new Instructors. As well as providing one of the best training programs available; Holly has well over a decade within the industry and has worked in most of the major diving location worldwide performing a variety of dive related roles and is always available to give advice regarding job opportunities available and what to expect from specific roles and specific destinations.
The program schedule has been specifically designed and modified through experience to allow candidates to get the most out of their personal training plan. Although the actual Instructor Course runs on an 11 day schedule, the program includes an additional 4 days of pre IDC preparation before the course starts; candidates are strongly advised to arrive a minimum of 4 days before the start date.
During the 11 day program candidates will follow a set schedule which revolves around classroom, confined water and open water environments. Classroom sessions involve learning dive theory, participating in mandatory PADI presentations and practicing individual presentations. Pool sessions involve skill circuits, DSD workshops, rescue practice and practicing confined water presentations. In Open Water candidates will learn about dive site setup, more skill practice, and more rescue practice and of course practicing their individual open water teaching presentations.
Although the schedule has been devised to allow candidates to get the most out of their program there is sometimes time to fit in additional workshops such as the PADI IDC Indonesia Aqualung demo, which was held at Trawangan Dive.
