Testimonial by Roman Gubler

Received this testimonial by Roman Gubler who participated in the November 2014 Khao Lak, Thailand IDC;

I have completed the instructor development course with Camille last November in Khao Lak, Thailand.
The course was extremely well directed by Camille and we had loads of fun during the two weeks leading to the final instructor examination.
Camille did not only teach us how to conduct PADI courses in a fun and professional way, but has also put a lot of focus on safety and has proven excellent knowledge in emergency response due to his experience working with the decompression chamber in Kho Samui. Passing on many wise lessons for live he has emphasized on how important it is to always cover our assets...
With 2 staff instructors, the course put a high focus on supporting each candidate individually so that everyone could follow his individual pace.
Thanks a lot Camille for this excellent experience and entry into the professional world of teaching diving! All the best!

Thanks Roman, for taking the time out in your busy work schedule to write this. looking forward seeing you soon again!
