Choosing the right PADI IDC ?
Choosing the right Course Director and PADI 5 Star IDC or Career Development Center (CDC) for your instructor training is the most important decision you will make prior to entering the dive industry as a professional educator.
Forums should be used to view people's experiences with certain Course Directors, there could be some 'fake' or self-promotion going on so always ignore the best and worst comments, or at least take them in isolation. You can go on the Facebook page of your IDC or Course Director (most have them now) and ask their ex students directly. Alternatively you can look at past students 'verified' comments on this site.
Another and important part is not only the experienced Course Director or the quality of the IDC, but will the IDC Center teaches the IDC candidates to become an instructor or only to pass the PADI IE.
Oceans 5 dive resort like to teach their candidates to become a PADI Instructor. Oceans 5 takes extra time to transform the candidates in instructor. After they successfully passed the PADI IE the candidates have the opportunity to assist on courses with experienced PADI instructors.
To feel relax; to absorb the IDC information is an easy way, the facilities are also important. Oceans 5 has a special designed classroom for only PADI IDCs. The classroom has air con, huge tv, an relax area, coffee corner and free wifi. During the IDC the candidates will spend a lot of time in the classroom. It is a must for every candidate to have his/her own space for his/her materials to get the best out of the IDC. Nothing is more frustrating for a candidate to share tables, books, coffee cups, and sitting in a liitle sauna.
The swimming pool of Oceans 5 is specially made for scuba diving. It is perfect for teaching and conducting IDCs. The pool is a 25 meter tall pool and has enough space to conducts IDCs in an easy and relaxing way.
All the facilities are at Oceans 5 at Gili Air. Gili Air is a beautiful island on the North West of Lombok. The Gilis are do famous because there are no motor bikes, cars and dogs. That is why the Gilis are perfect for a PADI IDC, especially Gili Air!
