How to start?

There are a few different options for you how to start your PADI instructor course here at Gili Air online. 

1) The PADI eLearning Instructor Course part

It is a little bit more expensive, but there are 2 huge advantages to choose this program.

If you have a limited amount of time and want to do the PADI instructor course more quickly, you will save 3 days of your PADI IDC Gili Islands. If you choose this option you will need to come fully prepared for the instructor course and we also highly recommend doing the Dive Theory online in advance.

This will results in a more relaxing instructor course. Our Instructor course will run with the lectures for those who have not completed online learning. This gives you the opportunity to relax, to go on a free fundive or to study. 

2) PADI Dive Theory Online

As part of the Instructor Course you are required to take 5 dive theory exams. For a relaxing PADI IDC we recommend to study the dive theory before you arrive on the Gili Islands in Indonesia.

How can you do this? You can use the Diving Knowledge Workbook and Encylopedia of Recreational Diving, but the Dive Theory online is a great way to do it as well.

Each online section consists of multi-media instructional sections followed by study questions. End-of-section assessments verify eLearner mastery of each of the following:

  • The Physics of Diving
  • The Physiology of Diving
  • Diving Equipment
  • Decompression Theory and the Recreational Dive Planner
  • Diving Skills and Environment
