PADI IDC Gili Islands Course | Finding work after your PADI IDC Indonesia program

One of the main worries about taking your PADI Instructor Development Course is what will happen afterwards and will you find work as a scuba diving instructor. The Gili Islands are continuously getting to be a more and more popular destination for tourists and divers alike and therefore work can be relatively easy to find.

However local dive centers do prefer instructors who know the dive sites and have trained within the local area. Of course the PADI IDC with Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod has the best reputation, as well as great contacts, within the Gili Islands and therefore once candidates have finished the course they stand a good chance of gaining employment.

An easy way to see this for yourself is to simply walk around Gili Trawangan and talk to the Instructors who are already on the ground and find out their opinion; another way is to check out the PADI IDC Indonesia Facebook Fan Page and you will see all previous candidates and it’s not hard to check out where they are now. The PADI IDC Gili Islands runs every month at Trawangan Dive, the only PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center (CDC) in Gili Trawangan and the first ever to be set up in the Gili Islands and the entire Lombok region. The Dive Center has a long history of certifying PADI Instructors and clearly offers only the very best of professional instructor training.
All Instructor level training is conducted by Platinum PADI Course Director, who has a global reputation for excellence and success. Her shear motivation and experience within industry has earned her multiple awards including the PADI “comittement to instructor development” award, the PADI “Elite Instructor 300” award and of course the prestigious “Platinum PADI” rating. Having worked as a PADI Dive instructor for over a decade in multiple locations she has firsthand experience what candidates can expect from the industry and conversely what the industry expects from new instructors.

If you’re looking to take the PADI Instructor Development Course and wish to get the best possible training available the PADI IDC Gili Islands offers exactly that combined with a high chance of getting straight into employment once the course has finished.
