PADI IDC for July 2008 is completed

PADI IDC for July 2008 is completed

Although the official closing isn't until tomorrow morning, they all completed the 'performance requirements' for this IDC and are growing stronger by the day.
Time to move on and go to Koh Tao on Tuesday to participate in the PADI IE, held there from Tuesday the 15th July through to Thursday 17th July.




During the OWSI Course they worked more in the pool or Confined Water, as Richard can be seen here, demonstrating a buoyancy control skill called Fin Pivot.



There was a lot more of quality classroom time, with lots of presentations done by me, with topics ranging from explaining the ins and outs of all PADI courses to Risk Management or Diver Retention.

There was work to be done by the candidates as well though and in this picture Steve is in action during one of his Knowledge Development or classroom presentations.


Today we completed the current IDC with the second Open Water dive on Chaweng Beach under beautiful conditions and even the visibility on the beach was helping out today.


On their way back to the beach, after the dive and skills they controlled and performed, they saw various star fish, some snake eels and a rather big sea horse.



As I mentioned before in this post, tomorrow we'll officially close this IDC and on Tuesday morning we're all off to Koh Tao for the PADI IE. Keep posted for more updates on their IE adventures.

I hope that you enjoy reading my dive blog entries and I appreciate it if you subscribe to this blog.

Hi Camille,

Yes, the vis was amazing for Chaweng Beach. I've really enjoyed the training. The scenarios of palying student and instructor is a great way to learn and a lot of fun.

Thanks for everything!
