The morning of the 27th started out in the classroom, where again, all my five candidates passed with high scores.
On the 27th in the afternoon, confined water started, here's Rob with some candidates during confined water.
Elliott after his Confined Water presentation, his grin tells it all, 3 down, one to go!
Today saw the last part of this PADI IE, with the Open Water part. Here are all candidates for a briefing by Rob.
Here's a picture of a bunch of PADI Course Directors, from left to right, myself, Marita Fassbinder, who had two candidates during this IE and Heinrich Gerhard who lives on Samui but teaches IDC's on Phuket who came by to say hello.
After Rob completed their Open Water de-briefings, the happy part started. The pressure's off, looks of relief all around by Ivo, Stuart, Jeff (who succeeded today on his 3rd Open Water IE), Elliott and Kana.
Here's the official group photo, from left to right Rob Scammell (PADI Examiner), Jeff George (OWSI), Ivo Juric (OWSI), Elliott Jessup (OWSI), Kana Sawada (OWSI), Stuart Hurley (OWSI), Akira Sakugawa (IDCS), Camille Lemmens (PADI Course Director), Andy Poulter (OWSI) and Nobuhiko Abe (IDCS). Missing in the picture is Nazem Youssef (IDCS), he's already back in Dubai, where he lives.
For all it's a well deserved day off tomorrow, after tonight's party and than on Tuesday the EFRI course and after that for Ivo and Elliott the Dan O2 and Instructor course and the MSDT specialties.
Once more, congratulations to all.
