On to a pretty exciting career now!

My IDC with Kazi was such an amazing experience – I’ve been planning on doing it for a while and I’m so glad I decided to do it at Trawangan Dive with Kazi! Our class size was really nice and small (just 3) which meant Kazi had loads of time to help us through all our learning. Of course the diving in Gili T is amazing, but the atmosphere within the dive shop is what really made the experience so special! After the IE I had the chance to do some teaching experience with the team and I’m lucky enough to have landed a job with Kazi’s help – on to a pretty exciting career now!


I’m so grateful for the quality of Kazi’s teaching

From start to finish, our IDC with Kazi was a fantastic experience. It was well organised, rigorous and also a lot of fun! Kazi’s energy and enthusiasm helped make every single day feel exciting and informative. And having a small group was ideal. It allowed Kazi to work in-depth with us on every element of the course. Nothing felt rushed and anything we wanted to spend extra time on, we could. Kazi helped keep us relaxed and positive as the Instructor Exam approached. We passed with top marks and there was absolutely nothing I felt unprepared for. We couldn’t have had better training. Working as a full-time instructor now, I’m so grateful for the quality of Kazi’s teaching. Her tips, tricks and advice have been invaluable in the first few months of teaching. Do your IDC with Kazi and you won’t regret it!


I am super happy I decided to do the course with Kazi!

Kazi is an amazing teacher and one of the most passionate instructors you will ever meet! I am super happy I decided to do the course with her. What I loved is that kazi cares about every individual and looks at your personal strengths. She has an incredible amount of knowledge and she really wants to teach you all she knows. Plus, she makes learning so much fun. After the IDC I felt super ready for the IE and all of us smashed it. Couldn’t be more happy to join her idc! Thank you so much for the amazing experience Kazi!
