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.

Today it will be a full day of pool. The candidates are having a skills circuit, a rescue workshop, and practicing their rescue skills. Hopefully it stays a big cloudy for them. Sun burnings are happening a lot during rescue skills.

Gina did her PADI Divemaster Course at Gili Trawangan, but decided to come to Gili Air to follow her dream to become a PADI Dive Instructor. She enjoyed the island so much that she stayed 6 months on Gili Air. During these months she got a lot of experience as a divemaster and as an instructor. She found work on the island, and is now a dive instructor on a tropical paradise island.

The new IDC class room will be finished in a few weeks. It will be a modern class room with all the newest technologies. It will have space for 10-15 candidates easily. The next goal will be another pool, especially made for IDCs. The current pool is a 25 meter especially designed for scuba diving, but Oceans 5 like to offer quality to their candidates. So the new pool will have no other distractions. It will be a 20 meter pool with 2 levels of depth.

If you want to do your IDC on the Gili Islands you cant deny that Oceans 5 has the best IDC facilities. And Oceans 5 dive resort likes to keep this, so every time Oceans 5 is listening to the candidates how Oceans 5 can improve.

He has so much energy that he dives sometimes 4-5 times a day. He is Oceans 5 house reef specialist and can show you all the beautiful creatures, like Mandarin Fish, Nudis, Crabs, Snake Eels and more.

The final test of the Divemaster Course is the “unofficial” snorkel test. Divemaster trainees at Oceans 5 can choose if they want to do this, they don’t have to do it. The new Divemaster will be dressed up and have to drink an amount of mix of everything. The mix will be well prepared and its more for the fun than to get people drunk or totally wasted.

Martin enjoyed the evening! Oceans 5 enjoyed the evening. Martins dive mentor, Giny, did a great job. But also all the other Instructors of Oceans 5: Phil, Jmal, Janneke and Riet!

They made the job of the Course Director easier, because the Divemaster is not Martin final goal! He is joining the upcoming PADI Instructor Development Course at Oceans 5. The IDC Gili Islands starts the 15th of January with 2 days EFR Instructor Course!
