Join Multi Award Winning Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod on the IDC Gili Islands in August 2016 and become a scuba diving Instructor at the first ever PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center (CDC) to be established in the Gili Islands and the entire Lombok region.
The Instructor Development Program is actually made up of two parts; the PADI Instructor Development Course and the Pre-IDC preparation course which is conducted before the IDC. The August preparation workshops take place over a 5 day period and start on the 8th August and is immediately followed by the PADI IDC Course starting on the 13th August. All candidates are strongly advised to arrive on the 8th so as to take full advantage of the entire program and be fully prepared for the Instructor Examination. Having previously won the PADI “Outstanding Contribution to Professional Development” Award the program has been recognized and praised throughout the diving industry.
The program is fully conducted by PADI Course Director Holly Macleod who is recognized within the diving industry as a global leader in professional scuba diving Instructor level training and has received multiple awards for her personal contribution to the industry including the PADI Elite Instructor and Frequent Trainer Awards. The PADI Elite Instructor Awards Program is designed to recognize instructors who have issued a certain number of certifications within a particular year and come in the form of 50,100,150,200,250,300 certifications. In 2015 Holly issued nearly 500 certifications and therefore received the “Elite-300” Award; the highest possible level within this award program. The Frequent Trainer Award Program recognizes PADI Course Directors for their contribution to instructor level training and is awarded based on professionalism, commitment, training standards and overall number of certifications and continuing education conversions. The Frequent Trainer Award Program categorizes PADI Course Directors into three categories; the “Gold”, “Silver” and “Platinum” Status Awards. Holly received the “Platinum Status” Award; the highest possible category.
The program takes place at the only PADI 5 Star IDC CDC Center in Gili Trawangan, Indonesia which is the largest of the three islands commonly referred to as the Gili’s situated off the North West Coast of Lombok and is easily located by fast boat from the island of Bali. The Gili Islands are a rapidly growing tourist destination and therefore the dive industry is also rapidly expanding with a growing number of people looking to take their entry level dive courses. Conversely dive centers are always on the lookout for new instructors to cater for the influx of new student divers.
