PADI IDC Indonesia Prices “You get what you pay for” | IDC Gili Islands with Holly Macleod

One of the major concerns for any Divemaster when choosing an IDC program is the cost, but it’s important to consider what is your paying for and of course the cost can often say a lot about that particular program.

Obviously firstly it is important to consider who is conducting the program. Many dive centers will boast multiple Course Directors, Master Instructor and a variety of Staff Instructors. This is great on the surface, but can often lead to candidates wandering exactly who is conducting the program and can often remove that personal relationship that candidates form with their Course Director. The PADIIDC Indonesia GoPro Program in Gili Trawangan is fully conducted by renowned Platinum rated PADI Course Director Holly Macleod. Holly conducts the entire range of PADI Instructor programs.

It is also necessary to consider the experience of those teaching the program i.e. how long they have been teaching the Instructor Programs and also their previous life as an instructor. Our Platinum rated PADI Course Director has been working within Industry for well over a decade; having worked in many different scuba related positions in a variety of countries such as Australia, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and of course Malaysia. All in all Holly has spent approximately 4 years teaching the IDC program in both Indonesia and Thailand and can provide the best possible instructor training available. Of course Holly is always happy to share her diving experience with candidates being able to provide first hand advice about employment and locations

It is also a good idea to check out what center you will training with, it’s always good to find out their PADI Store Rating and their training facilities. All of our Instructor level training is conducted at Trawangan Dive, which is not only the largest Dive Center in Gili Trawangan, but is the first ever established PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center established in both Lombok and the Gili Islands.

Our PADI IDCIndonesia prices are designed to be competitive without compromising the educational quality of the program. If you’re looking to develop a rewarding and successful career as a scuba diving Instructor the Gili IDC can help.
