Are you a seasoned scuba diving instructor and wish to crossover and teach the range of PADI Courses? Trawangan Dive has the answer with the PADI IDC Gili Islands Crossover program in Gili Trawangan.

Why choose Trawangan Dive to take the crossover course?

Gili Trawangan is a rapidly growing area for PADI certifications and dive centers on the island are always looking for PADI Instructors. Although our award winning Platinum PADI Course Director always strongly encourages crossover candidates to take the full IDC at no extra cost, it is also possible to take advantage of some free fun dives before or even sometimes during the Instructor Development Course (IDC). One certified as a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor you will be able to look for a job locally whilst drawing upon both your previous experience and your knowledge of the local dive sites. Trawangan Dive is currently the only PADI 5 Star Career Development Center (CDC) on Gili Trawangan and was the first to be established in the Gili Islands and therefore exceeds the standards usually expected from a PADI 5 Star IDC Center. All Instructor level programs are conducted by Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod who has won multiple awards for her Instructor level programs offered in Gili Trawangan.
