About The Instructor Development Course
The Instructor Development Course (IDC) runs each and every month and is based at the only current PADI 5 Star Career Development Center (CDC) in Gili Trawangan. The dive center was also the first center to be awarded the PADI CDC status in the Gili Islands and in fact the entire Lombok region, so students are safe in the knowledge that the facilities exceed that that is required to run the program.

As well as the PADI Instructor Development Course (CDC), the entire range of instructor continuing education programs are available including the Master Scuba Diver Trainer Preparation Course, the PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course and assistance with gaining the Master Instructor rating. In fact in 2015 we have seen many PADI Staff Instructors working alongside the course to gain the necessary credit towards sitting the Course Director Training Course (CDTC).
