Before the PADI IDC Gili Islands Program starts, candidates are strongly encouraged to participate in the pre IDC preparation workshops which are offered free as part of the PADI Instructor Development Course at Trawangan Dive.
The Pre-IDC preparation course is run prior to the star of the Instructor Course and is designed to review the knowledge from the PADI Divemaster Course and brush up on the skills learnt during the Divemaster Course. During the prep sessions candidates will revise the 5 theory topics of Dive Skills & Environment, the RDP, Physics, Physiology and Equipment. Candidates will also have the opportunity to brush up on their demonstration level Skill Circuit during the preparation period.
The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) is conducted over an 11 day period and is designed not only to cover the PADI IDC Curriculum, but to develop candidates to a level over and above that generally expected within the diving industry. During the PADI IDC program candidates will participate in sessions in the classroom, confined water and open water environments.
Classroom sessions will involve participating in presentations and workshops such as Marketing, The 4 E’s Sales Workshop, Diver Retention, Diver Acquisition, The Business of Diving and Risk Management. During classroom sessions our Platinum PADI Course Director will introduce the PADI Standards and Procedures that apply to each individual PADI Program or Course. The classroom will also be used to prepare for the PADI Examinations by way of practice exams.
In Confined Water candidates will take part in a variety of workshops including the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) Workshop, The PADI Skill Circuit Workshop, The Rescue Workshop and a Student Control and Positioning Workshop. In confined candidates will also get to practice their skills and rescue exercises further.
