If you're serious about professional scuba instruction, and want to be more than an instructor

(perhaps work in PADI Instructor Development Centers/Career Development Centers, own your
own PADI dive center/resort, or progress to becoming a PADI Course Director yourself), then
the Staff Instructor course is the next logical step for you as a PADI Instructor. PADI IDC Staff
Instructors are PADI Instructors moving towards instructor-level training or teaching the
Instructor Development Course (IDC). IDC Staff Instructors can independently train and certify
PADI Assistant Instructors as well as help train PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.

Where can you do the PADI IDC Staff Instructor Course?
Oceans 5 dive resort is conducting every month PADI IDC Staff Instructor Courses at Gili Air,
Gili Islands, Indonesia. The Gili Islands are part of the famous Coral Triangle. The Coral
Triangle is a marine area located in the western Pacific Ocean. It includes the waters of
Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and Solomon Islands.
Named for its staggering number of corals (nearly 600 different species of reef-building corals
alone), the region nurtures six of the worlds seven marine turtle species and more than 2000
species of reef fish.
