IDP Graduates all around the world

Over the years Instructor Development Philippines has created quite a network of dive professionals all around the globe. Many of our newly graduated instructors have ended up working within the Philippines, but our contacts do not end there. From graduates setting up their own dive center in Curacao to working on liveaboards in world-class destinations like Raja Ampat to living it up in beautiful resorts on remote islands of the Maldives and the Pacific. We often receive requests from these dive pro’s to help them find new colleagues or replacements when they move on to another opportunity. Our graduates are hard working professionals and uphold the IDP name which creates an opportunity for you as an aspiring dive professional. Join the IDP network by becoming part of our Facebook group ‘We LOVE Instructor Development Philippines’ and let us help you find a job. Check the map for dive destinations that our IDP grads have settled in and perhaps you’ll end up on the same map one day!

Julia Heintz - PADI MSDT #409219

Julia Heintz


I'm Julia, an outgoing and energetic 29 year old woman from Germany. I am a PADI MSDT. I became an Instructor last year in November with Instructor Development Philippines. The last few months I was working in a Dive Centre, located in a 5star hotel in Greece. I gained a lot of experience in teaching in Greece last year. After the season ended there I moved back to Dauin.

I absolutely love the area around Dauin and the diving there. After finishing my Instructor course last year I did some Freelance work in the area so I know the Dive sites and the area very well.

My passion to teach Scuba Diving is just becoming bigger with every course I teach. Also I am a team player with great communication and customer service skills who likes to make everyone around me feel comfortable. I am also used to work under pressure and I have excellent organisation skills.

So if you need a passionate, motivated and experienced Instructor I am the right person to contact. I can`t wait to hear from you!

If you have any questions just contact me per Mail, Whatsapp or on my Filipino number which you can find in my CV.

Best regards,
