The PADI IDC Gili Islands in Gili Trawangan is now seen as one of the best locations to take your professional training offering the very best of experience within the recreational diving industry. Multi Award Winning Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod conducts the PADI Instructor Development Course every month which takes place at the only PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center (CDC) on the Islands and therefore offers world class training facilities.
When deciding where to take professional scuba diving courses it is important to consider a number of additional factors other than just the quality of diving within the area. Of course the quality of diving is important as this is the fundamental reason we choose to continue training and pursue careers within the industry, however professional Divemasters need to consider what exactly they are looking for. For example a Divemaster taking their training in world class diving destinations such as the Galapagos, the Maldives or Komodo National Park may gain a lot of firsthand experience by continuously diving some of the world most challenging conditions, but those wishing to gain experience of training and dive education are limited to only a small numbers of diving students passing through these areas as they are generally reserved for experienced divers.
These areas tend to only receive a fraction of the total number of education programs offered by areas such as the Gili Islands which are home to the largest certifying dive centers in Indonesia. For professional Divemasters looking to take the next step, the PADI IDC in Gili Trawangan offers the best possible all round package. As the largest islands within the Gili’s, Trawangan has some very busy Dive Shops with courses starting every day and is therefore a great place to become a scuba diving instructor. Team teaching after the IDC is a great way to gain exposure to courses and entry level dive experiences and should be included in all quality IDC training packages. The PADI IDC with Multi Award Winning Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod takes place in the first ever PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center to be established in the Lombok and Gili Islands region.
Another huge consideration when choosing where to take professional instructor training is the standard of the training facilities. The Gili Islands offers far superior training facilities than seen in some of these particular world famous diving destination. The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) with Holly Macleod benefits from the world class training facilities expected from the only PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center (CDC) on the Island of Gili Trawangan. The dive center consists of two training pools, classroom facilities, beachside location and private instructor training boat. The Gili Islands has multiple purpose built Open Water training sites which are situated only minutes away by a personal Instructor training boat that leaves from the beach directly outside the dive center. This is a massive advantage eliminating the time taken travelling to the jetty, loading the boat and travelling to dive sites as seen with some of these more remote dive sites. Having purpose built training sites are vital to training and far more beneficial than improvising with what you have available and using dive sites that “will do” rather than having been carefully selected.
Another important factor when choosing a place to take professional Instructor training is the quality of training provided as well as the reputation and experience of the Course Director. The PADI IDC Indonesia is fully conducted by Holly Macleod who has received multiple awards for the program she has designed, the sheer number of instructor certifications she has issued and her overall commitment to the diving industry. Holly’s pure experience built over the last 13 years working within the diving industry puts her in the position to advise future instructors about potential diving related jobs and about specific diving destinations.
The major factor in choosing where to take your PADI Instructor Development Course is the consistency of the program. The PADI IDC Indonesia is always conducted by Holly, always takes place in the same PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center offering world class training facilities and is always delivered to the highest possible standards in a fun and easy to understand format. Holly believes that the perfect training schedule has been developed in the Gili Islands, therefore there is no need to travel to alternative locations with inferior logistical benefits
