PADI IDC Gili Islands | A “Consistent” Personal Training Experience With Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod

Consistency, quality and experience are hallmarks of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC). The course is directed by the Multi Award Winning Platinum PADI Holly Macleod. It places value on 2 primary outcomes. The first is the development and welfare of students. The second is the provision of high quality education.

Holly has had many offers from varied worldwide contacts to conduct PADI Instructor programs. Regardless, Holly prefers to keep her training consistent. Her aim is to ensure that the quality of education remains one of the best in the diving industry.

The Dive Center, Holly, and her PADI IDC Staff Instructors work in complete unison with each other. Their main goal is to provide the best possible training. The dive center is one of the largest PADI certifiers in Indonesia. It is also one of the largest in the area. It thus provides excellent facilities for Instructor level training.

Classroom sessions and confined swimming pool workshops are conducted onsite. Open water sessions take place at training sites situated closely to the previous 2.

Many dive centers offer many PADI Course Directors, which is great. Regardless, it is important to see what each person has to offer over while comparing directors. This is because dive centers usually train their next Course Director in house. This ultimately produces a team of people with the same experiences as each other. Such a team will show similar traits and habits, which can be good or bad.

Holly does offer the PADI Course Director training. Yet, don't expect it to only involve certifying other students' qualifications for the PADI CDTC. Staff Instructor training with Holly incorporates the pure essence of training. This requires action on behalf of the instructor. It also requires the staff instructor to be available for extra training. Emotional support will also be provided for candidates on the program. Also, there is a massive emphasis on gaining individual experience. This allows the instructor to aid candidates with important career decisions.

The PADI Instructor training will be offered by Holly. Thus, candidates can be confident in the management of the entire program. Holly will also track each candidate’s development, ensuring consistency and quality training.

Holly has experience seeing hundreds of new instructors take the program. Thus, she finds that outsourcing such crucial tasks is difficult. This is because outsourcing highly affects the course's dynamics.

The program occurs monthly at the PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center (CDC) in GiliTrawangan. It offers some of the best instructor training facilities available within the industry.

So if you are looking to become a scuba diving instructor, this is the place to be. A highly experienced Platinum rated PADI Course Director offers this chance to pro divers. Even after the course is completed, candidates can continue to refer to Holly for advice. This is because Holly will not be disappearing as soon as the course is completed. She is always available locally for post IDC support.

The dive center offers exceptionally high standard of training facilities. This is to be expected from a PADI Career Development Center (CDC). It has proven itself to be a perfect choice for Holly to conduct the program.
