Embarking on the journey to become a certified diving instructor can be both exhilarating and daunting. With the plethora of options available for PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) training, ranging from intensive 10-day programs to more extended 28-day sessions, prospective candidates often find themselves overwhelmed by the choices. However, Oceans 5 Gili Air stands out with its unique approach, offering a 20-day PADI IDC that promises not only comprehensive training but also a stress-free learning environment.

Comprehensive Theory Preparation

Led by the experienced PADI Course Director, Sander Buis, the PADI IDC at Oceans 5 Gili Air takes a holistic approach to instructor development, ensuring that students are not only equipped with the necessary skills but also provided with ample time to absorb and apply their knowledge. Unlike other programs where additional preparation days may come at an extra cost or as complimentary offerings, Oceans 5 integrates all theoretical preparation within the 20-day timeframe of the IDC itself.

Equal Footing for All Candidates

One of the key distinguishing factors of Oceans 5’s approach is the emphasis placed on ensuring all students begin the IDC with a solid foundation in dive theory. By dedicating the initial days to theory sessions, led by knowledgeable instructors, every candidate enters the practical aspects of the course on equal footing. This not only fosters a supportive learning environment but also alleviates the stress associated with catching up on theoretical concepts during the practical phases of training.

Enhanced Practical Engagement

Moreover, this streamlined approach allows for more extensive engagement with workshops, pool sessions, and open water dives throughout the duration of the IDC. With the stress of theoretical exams and foundational knowledge out of the way, candidates can immerse themselves fully in honing their practical skills and gaining hands-on experience under the guidance of seasoned instructors.
