PADI MSDT Program Gili Islands

Dive resort Oceans 5 organizes every month with IDC Gili Islands a PADI MSDT program Gili Islands. The last 3 days 2 Instructors of Oceans 5 did one of the most interesting specialties Oceans 5 can teach the PADI Sidemount Diver Instructor Specialty Course.

Sidemount became the last couple of years more and more popular. It is not like normal diving with a tank on your bank, but you will dive with 2 tanks on the side of you. You are more streamlined, in a case you are also wreck diver specialist and you like to penetrate a wreck. You can reach the valves easy in case of a problem. Your buoyancy will be a bit different but sidemount diving gives you a extra way of freedom.

The first day was all about dive theory exams. There are 5 topics:

1) Equipment
2) Skills and Environment
3) RDP
4) Physics
5) physiology

The passing rate is for each topic 75%. Except for the person who is doing the IDC staff; her passing rate should be 80% or higher.
Oceans 5 dive resort starts her IDC always with an evaluation of the Dive Theory Exams. The PADI Course Directors like to see how the knowledge of the IDC candidates is and they will have enough time to brush the knowledge that is leaking. Especially when the candidates did their PADI Divemaster Course a few years ago they forget most of the theory.
