PADI Course Director Internship Gili Islands
PADI Course Directors are PADI Instructor trainers
The PADI Course Director rating denotes the highest instructor achievement in the PADI System. To become a Course Director, PADI Master Instructors complete a PADI Course Director Training Course during which they learn how to conduct PADI Instructor Development programs and gain experience in developing dive educators. Course Directors are among the dive industry’s most influential opinion makers and play a critical role in shaping the attitudes and abilities of PADI Instructors. They serve as role models for other PADI Members in regards to PADI instruction, diver training and professionalism.
Oceans 5 dive resort Gili Air has 2 PADI Course Directors, Camille Lemmens and Sander Buis. Last April, 2013, Sander Buis became a PADI Course Director.
