It’s been a fantastic year for The PADI IDC Gili Islands Program and Award Winning Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod. Let’s look at what’s happening in 2016.
Gili Islands, Indonesia - Everyone loves a celebration and it’s great that the PADI IDC Indonesia Program with Platinum PADI Course Director has so many things to celebrate. Firstly, attracting a record number of professional divers choosing to take their Instructor training with Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod in the Gili Islands.
During 2015 over 100 professional divers chose to take the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) with Holly at Trawangan Dive; the first ever PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center (CDC) to be established in the Gili Islands, Lombok and the entire Nusa Tenggara Barat area. As well as those taking the PADI IDC program, Holly has issued hundreds of additional instructor level certifications including specialties and Staff Instructor certifications.
Both Holly and the program she has devised have also received multiple awards for her personal professionalism and overall dedication to professional level training. The program has also received the “Commitment to Instructor Development” Award
Now for 2016, candidates can expect new developments and improvements on the program which have been devised in accordance with market research, candidate feedback and from the experience of the Platinum PADI Course Director who has always worked within PADI 5 Star Centers scattered around the globe.
Previously the program ran on an 11 day schedule with 4 days of pre IDC preparation. In 2016 the prep will be extended to 5 days and the schedule will be altered slightly so as to assist potential candidates in not just making a smoother transition into the IDC, but to get them off to the perfect start with no hesitation. The length of the Instructor course has stayed the same, however there are also some additional workshops included into the program designed to help Instructor graduates make an easy transition into their new career with the confidence and knowledge to be the best instructor that they can.
During the program candidates will study the entire PADI system and their philosophy and approach to “teaching the world to dive”. Core elements of the course include the business of diving, diver acquisition, sales, marketing, diver retention, codes of conduct, PADI Standards and Procedures and teaching techniques for all of the PADI programs available. Students will participate in a whole range of workshops including the Discover Scuba Diving workshop, the Adventures in Diving Workshop, the Rescue Workshop, Various Student Control Workshops and Dive Site Management Workshops as well as many additional workshops pioneered by Holly and her Instructor training team.
