PADI IDC Gili Islands

The 2017 Schedule Has Been Updated and Revised with Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod on the PADI IDC Gili Islands Due to Sheer Quality of Training

Having already issued multiple awards for the PADI IDC Gili Islands Program and personally to Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod in recognition of the sheer quality of training provided to new scuba diving instructors; PADI South East Asia Pacific and regional representatives have decided that they cannot get enough of the unusually high standard of training and quality provided by Holly and can only benefit from having more “Holly trained” Instructors within the industry.


Gili Islands, Indonesia -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/26/2016 --The 2017 schedule has now been amended to provide 12 sessions during the 2017 calendar year. As PADI appear to be looking to raise the standard of diving instructors by specifically providing additional sessions for Holly's training region and therefore acknowledging that Holly's professional instructor level training is not just PADI's preferred standard of professional Instructor level dive training, but is well over and above that generally found within Industry. The PADI IDC Gili Islands group can now release the scheduled 12 Opportunities to join the PADI Instructor Training Program with Multi Award Winning Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod in 2017.
