Pimp Your IDC Gili Trawangan | PADI Career Development Center | Platinum Course Director

Choosing an IDC course has never been easier. As the only PADI Career Development Center in the Gili Islands and having a Platinum PADI Course Director we constantly monitor our training programs to ensure only the very best for potential Instructors to develop a successful and rewarding career in teaching recreational PADI Dive programs.

Our PADI Career Development Center is situated in Gili Trawangan, the largest of the three Gili Islands. The Islands offer a peaceful and relaxed island environment surrounded by palm trees and tropical fringing reef. The island has no motorized transport and no dogs, which only adds to the tropical island feel and of course all one needs to do is look at neighboring Bali with their bumper to bumper congestion problems and ridiculously high stray dog population. The dive center is one of the larger dive centers, not only in the Gili Islands but Indonesia as a whole having won awards for diver acquisition in 2013 and of course for our outstanding commitment to Instructor Development in 2014.

During 2013 we introduced a range of career enhancing programs such as our team teaching program whereby you will get to shadow our instructor and also those of another dive center within our group, ultimately team teaching within the 2 largest and best known dive operators in Indonesia and ultimately learning for some of the best instructors the industry has to offer. We also introduced our IDC Gili Trawangan Biorock Program, which combines the Instructor Development Corse with the Biorock Indonesia Program teaching students everything they need to know about coral reef gardening, maintenance and also building their own Biorock structure, installing it and providing the low voltage electrical current. We have also introduced our Komodo Livaboard IDC Internship Program which allows candidates to see first had exactly how a successful Livaboard operation runs. If you’re interested in any of our IDC Gili Trawangan CareerDevelopment Programs don’t hesitate to contact our Platinum rated PADI Course Director to discuss your personal options and decide how we can help you to develop the perfect career in recreational diving.

During the course of 2014 we have introduce some additional workshops and seminars. The IDC Gili Islands Post IDC Workshops include a new revised Open Water Diver Course Update which primarily prepares students for the addition of the Revised Open Water Course which will come into place later this year and possibly even later than this for Indonesia. The Project AWARE presentation is also an additional workshop we will be providing. The Project Aware workshop will basically present some facts, figures and achievements of Project Aware to the candidates so as one they are working within the industry they can act as a voice for the foundation and help to encourage people to get involved. We have also developed a range of C.V and employment workshops, which not only allows candidates to perfect the diving C.V, but also to find out about any local and international jobs that are available. Also if a candidate has found a potential job we can discuss any further training that may be required. For example if a candidate gets a job offer in the USA, Europe or Australia there will be a legal requirement that they have an oxygen provision certificate or if the candidate gets a job in a center that dives a 26 meter wreck it may be a requirement of the job to be able to provide the Nitrox Course or to teach the wreck specialty course.

If you’re interested in finding a real career in the recreational dive industry than you’re in the right place. The PADI IDC Gili Trawangan can help you to achieve your dreams and create a real career in diving. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Platinum PADI Course Director.

  3. I was in Gili this winter with my family. When we was relaxing on Bali I thought we should visit Gili islands. Then we rode to Gili on boats by easygili .com. And yeeeah.. Gili islands are nicest place in the world, and I really think so. Oh this hot beaches and cold drinks, orange sunsets. At first we found cheap hotel and went there. Yeah, it is cheap. I think you have to visit this place! Try it.
