Zero to Hero program Gili Air Indonesia


Changing your way of living and lifestyle has never been so easy!

But what do you need to do to get to this level? Can everyone become a Divemaster or a scuba dive instructor? The first step would be to plan your schedule and check your finances.

The Program at PADI IDC Gili Islands

First you must get certified as an Open Water diver. During the PADI Open Water Course, you will study diving theory. You will master certain skills initially in the pool and then in the ocean. During this course you will learn about equipment function, safety and emergency procedures for both yourself and your buddy. You will learn everything you need to experience the underwater world. 

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course will fine-tune your judgment and competency. You will learn about marine life, how it feels to dive at depth to 30 meters and the importance of dive planning and being a conservative and safe diver. Also your buoyancy control and air consumption will improve.

The PADI Rescue Diver Course and EFR (Emergency First Response) will teach you diving emergency procedures, including how to rescue panicked or unconscious divers on the surface and at depth, and how to deal with immediate first aid.  

After this, you are ready to move onto the first step of becoming a dive professional, your Divemaster Course (4-8 weeks). As from 40 logged dives you can start this course. For many people the DM course is a stepping stone to becoming an Instructor.

What’s next? Your PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC). Here you will be guided through everything you need to be able to pass on your love of the sea to others.

Being a PADI Pro will take dedication, patience, fitness, health and an eagerness to learn. Are you a team player? Do you care about diver safety and happy customers? Most importantly are you dedicated to Scuba Diving and the protection of marine life? If the answers to these questions are yes then you are definitely on the path to a rewarding and fulfilling lifestyle and career!
