This a fantastic group to have on the course as they are coming from a variety of places, with a variety of different experiences. 5 of our candidates already have jobs here in Indonesia and it’s great for them to meet more people locally working in the same industry. During the PADI IDC candidates form strong friendships and these relationships will last a long time, well after the IDC has finished and in many cases throughout their careers. This is also your first steps in personal social marketing and Its always good to know people within the industry and of course you can’t possibly be 100% sure what you will be doing in the future and many people may find themselves using these contacts whether it looking for staff, looking for a job for themselves or even going on a diving holiday.
