Spring is the perfect time for PADI professionals to take the next step and become scuba diving instructors just in time for the European summer season.

She has included a range of her own presentations, workshops, and sessions that are designed to help new instructors to a level beyond just passing the PADI Instructor Examination giving them the skills, knowledge, and confidence to develop a rewarding a successful career and make a smooth transition into the job. Holly has well over a decade within the industry and has worked in a variety of worldwide dive destinations in a range of dive related roles and is always available to advise new instructors about new job roles or opportunities.

PADI Professionals taking the program with Holly can expect to find world-class training facilities at Trawangan Dive, the only PADI 5 Star IDC Career Development Center (CDC) in Gili Trawangan. The dive center is one of the highest certifying PADI dive shops in Indonesia and therefore it can also be a great place to team teach and gain some experience from practiced and well-seasoned scuba diving instructors.
