PADI IDC Gili Islands



Last November Oceans 5 Gili Air finished its last PADI IDC Lombok with 6 PADI scuba dive instructor candidates. After a 13 days instructor development course all passed the PADI Instructor Examination with brilliant scores. One of the PADI IDC Lombok candidates, Danni, likes to share his experiences with the PADI dive instructor course.

This is his story:

I thought the PADI IDC Lombok was very good, I found the course quite intensive.
I really enjoyed the pool and open water sections but not so much the classroom but that’s only because I really don’t enjoy classroom activities.
I really like how were all worked as a team, any questions or things that I was stuck on were answered/explained very well . I found this to be a great help.
I really like how everything that I needed was provide for example eRDP, calculators etc…
I felt the IDC really prepared me to work in the dive industry as an instructor.
The PADI Instructor Examination (IE ) was also very well organized.
I felt all the staff/members of the dive centre were very welcoming.
Overall I would highly recommend Oceans 5 Gili Air to anyone that wants to do their PADI IDC Gili Air and IE.
I would like to say a big thanks Giny, Joeri any everyone from Oceans 5.
