A Proven System
The PADI IDC at Oceans 5 is designed to follow a proven system that ensures instructor candidates receive a comprehensive education. With Sander at the helm, candidates are guided through an enriching learning experience that combines online study, workshops in the pool, and practical sessions in the ocean. This multi-faceted approach allows candidates to gain theoretical knowledge, develop hands-on skills, and apply their learning in real-world diving scenarios.
One of the significant advantages of the PADI IDC at Oceans 5 is the incorporation of online study. Candidates can access course materials and instructional videos before arriving at the center, giving them a head start on their learning journey. The online study component covers essential topics such as dive theory, dive physics, dive physiology, and equipment knowledge. By completing this portion remotely, candidates can maximize their time on-site for practical training and application of skills.
Workshops in the Pool
Upon arrival at Oceans 5, candidates dive straight into the pool for a series of workshops conducted by Sander and the team of experienced instructors. These workshops focus on refining diving skills, mastering teaching techniques, and familiarizing candidates with PADI training standards. Through hands-on exercises, candidates gain confidence in their ability to demonstrate and explain scuba skills effectively. The pool sessions are designed to create a supportive learning environment, allowing candidates to ask questions, seek guidance, and receive personalized feedback from Sander.
Practical Sessions in the Ocean
Building upon the skills honed in the pool, candidates progress to practical sessions in the beautiful ocean surrounding Gili Air. Here, they apply their knowledge and teaching abilities in real diving scenarios, preparing them for the challenges they will encounter as future scuba instructors. The stunning underwater world of Gili Air offers a diverse range of dive sites, including vibrant coral reefs, fascinating marine life, and even the opportunity to witness sea turtles in their natural habitat. Under the guidance of Sander Buis and his team, candidates gain valuable experience leading dives and navigating different underwater environments.
