The program offers a number of advantages for professional Divemasters wishing to take the next step. Firstly the program take place at the first PADI IDC Career Development Center (CDC) to be established in the Gili Islands offering world class training facilities. The course is entirely run by Award Winning Platinum rated PADI Course Director Holly Macleod.
IDC training takes place in the Gili Islands which is a fantastic location for dive professionals looking to make a start within the industry. Gili Trawangan offers a tropical Island surrounded by palm swept white sandy beaches and turquoise blue tropical sea with a wealth of marine life. Tourism is definitely growing on the island and the diving is good, meaning the number of dive courses are also increasing exponentially and therefore the demand for dive Instructors will always be increasing year upon year.
Once a PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Instructor you can teach the entire range of programs from entry level up to Divemaster as well as the Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty. Other Specialties are subject to the instructor gaining the necessary certification to teach in each individual area of their choosing.
The course itself takes place over an 11 day period and includes 5 days of pre-IDC preparation that has been designed to make the transition to Instructor level training as smooth as possible. Prep training focusses on dive theory and skill circuit reviews and ensures that candidates have the most up to date PADI materials. The IDC itself then makes the jump to teaching the courses that Divemasters already have been assisting on. We aim to ensure that our candidates are as prepared as possible, allowing them to enjoy a thorough and challenging IDC program.
