The July PADI IE has been successfully completed

The July PADI IE has been successfully completed

After three sunny and hot days on Koh Tao during this PADI IE, we can welcome another 3 PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors!




It all kicked off two days ago with an orientation by the PADI examiner, Rob Scammell and on this picture we can see Steve, Richard and Bill trying to keep their nerves under control.



With the best wishes, they got underway and with flying colours they took the first hurdle, the 5 theory exams and the General Standards & Procedures exam. This was and is a relief for most IE candidates to have passed.

One down, three to go!


Yesterday morning started out with their Knowledge Development presentations, which they again passed convincingly. Examiner Rob is giving them a briefing here.


Yesterday afternoon was reserved for Open Water and once more, they walked away from that one with great passing scores. Here they pose in Mae Haad harbour feeling relieved, three down by now and one more to go!



This morning they the Confined Water Presentation scheduled and they got pretty much straight fives for that. Well done guys and the last official thing they had to do was pose for the official picture, as in above! From left to right, Bill, Rob the PADI Examiner, Camille, Steve and Richard.
