Although the brand new PADI Open Water Course is due to be released later in the year the IDC Gili Islands is getting the candidates prepared early so the transition will not be too difficult. Many of our previous candidates and many other PADI Instructor have been asking about the new revised course, and what exactly the differences are. We are currently running post IDC workshops explaining the core differences in the course structure, running through changes in performance requirements, practicing new added skills and reviewing the new Open Water Diver Course materials. Of course our previous candidates are welcome to attend these sessions whenever possible. If however you have train elsewhere or are not currently in the Gili Islands we have prepares some online update information to help all instructors to make the transition. If you’re interested in finding out about the core elements of the changes that apply to the PADI Open Water Course check out the IDC Gili Islands Revised OWC summary.
There is also a brand new Project Aware presentation available for optional inclusion within the PADI IDC Program, and of course we here at our PADI Career Development Center we will be adding it to our schedule. We believe that without the efforts of Project AWARE the ocean would simply have no chance of survival and therefore intend to promote their efforts in all of our recreational and professional PADI programs. The IDC presentation is designed to arm PADI Instructors with the necessary tools to go out and act as an Ambassador for the foundation; being their voice in the community that matters the most. Again, our Platinum rated PADI Course Director will incorporate the Project AWARE presentation into our IDC Program and will also offer previous candidates the chance to attend. Again if for whatever reason you are unable to attend or have trained with an alternative center that does not off this additional presentation we have prepared some information regarding the IDC Gili Islands ProjectAWARE Workshop.
Other workshops that have been devised by our PADI Course Director are the C.V and Employment workshop whereby we plan and execute the construction of a typical diving C.V and discuss opportunities available either through our network of dive contact on the Gili Islands and beyond as well as any positions available externally and found by the candidate. A careers workshop will also accompany this, which runs through potential career enhancement training opportunities and discuss any further training that may be required for a particular position or location.
