Taking the Instructor Development Course with Gili IDC is easily the best decision I’ve made in my professional diving career. We were provided excellent facilities, a great source for us to practice and be prepared for instructing once we finish our training. Holly the Course Director, along with Justin and the other Staff Instructors were a great help all the time –making sure us, the candidates are more than ready for the Instructor Examination. Before the IDC, I was more than nervous about not being able to keep up because of the language barrier –but turns out the class consisted of people from different parts of the world with English as their second language! Amazing how Holly & team made this easy for all of us. Having the IDC during the pandemic, we had quite a huge time gap between the training and the exam itself. Within this gap, Holly & team made it possible for us to keep our practical skills and theories sharp, all the time being there and offering assistance to make sure all of our training needs are met. Thank you so much team for the great experience!

From start to finish Holly and the team at Trawan Dive Centre (TDC) made the whole experience easy and enjoyable from getting to location, accommodation recommendations, course materials, pre-study guidance, the course itself, the instructors exam (IE) and also team teaching with the experienced TDC instructors after passing the exam. Holly was very patient and helpful with all aspects of the course preparing you well for the IE.

Holly is the most experienced and professional course director, she kindly explained everything and taught us a lot. She so friendly helped our stay and activities during the covid-19. We had very good time during IDC. The section and workshop were perfect managed and we had passed our IE without any trouble. At the beginning we afraid of having IDC and IE in English, but Holly is patient and sweet to explain everything to us with an easy understanding way and give us Chinese version of all the material we need. And we had a Chinese speaking staff instructors kindly helped us a lot. It is the most amazing experience we had ever.

How can one express a review in a few words... Suffice to say Holly's the best in every sense. She knows diving & the science behind diving, she knows how to teach, she knows what PADI wants Instructors to know. All this on a platform of positivity and a lovely smile. I was in a batch which was unfortunate (or fortunate) to have one the longest IDC thanks to the COVID 19 Pandemic. Justin and Holly's commitment all through was commendable and will also me remembered. Justin's contribution on the prep exams and suggestions under water really helps your prepare with confidence for the D Day Don't think too much if you want to do an IDC and become an Instructor. Just write to her and join her next batch,
