Today I received a very nice testimonial by Kerstin of the Khao Lak April 2015 PADI IDC. A great IDC program with a lot of enthusiastic students and good instructors by now. Kerstin is in Egypt right now, working as an instructor and certified already 7 students!
I did my IDC with Camille in April 2015 in the wonderful town of Khao Lak in Thailand. If I had known before what an IDC would be like, I think I might never have done it!
We all arrived prepared really well since he sent us an email well before the start and included all the prerequisites.
An IDC is not for the faint of heart. It’s hard work, but in the end it’s all worth it. I was tired, but all happy when I had my certificate in my hands.
Camille makes you practise, practise, practise in the pool until your hair turns green (literally… happened to me!). He will do anything to make sure you pass your Instructor Exam and for this I can really recommend him. Even after hours he will be there for you if you have questions. You can tell he is very experienced since he knows EVERYTHING when it comes to standards and he gave us loads of advice for the future and real life situations.
Afterwards, he gave us all the pictures he took during the course and I still love looking back at them. It really was a funny time as well. I also loved how everyone was supporting each other.
So now I have already certified 7 students and I’m proud of all of them. Not sure if it was me or them, but so far I have had fantastic students and I love the fact that during the course you grow together and become friends with your students. I’m so glad I did the course with Camille and still today, months after the IDC, he is answering all of my questions that I have (especially standards!). I couldn’t have asked for a better course director. And yes, by the end of the course you will have gotten used to his humour!
Thanks for writing this Kerstin and hope to see you soon!
