The October 2008 IDC is about to start

Today we started with the Prep IDC course.

3 candidates are in for this run of the October IDC version of 2008. Maurice from the Netherlands, Tom from the UK and Xavier from India. That's a nice international mix!

During the Prep course the candidates complete the 5 Theory exams, so they and me know at what level they are at and where some polishing and/or refreshing needs to be done.

We also practice a skill circuit of 20 skills over the 2 days that the Prep course lasts and it's the exact same skill circuit that's part of the PADI Divemaster course.



On the picture from left to right, Maurice, Tom and Xavier.
Keep your eyes posted here to see more updates from this IDC.

The best of luck for the new 'collegas'.

Camille, time is flying by so quickly.
In any case - you need to tell Maurice that he is sitting on a 'very special' chair which requires him to exceed your and his expectation in any form imaginable ;-)

I wish I could have lunch with you guys! :-)

Cheers,
Volker

Hi Volker,

Will pass the message on to Maurice! ;-)

Tomorrow we will start lunch! That's indeed a 'wish you were there moment' :-)

You are so dead on with your comment .... but still you can't imagine how much I really, really, really would like to have lunch with you guys.

Well, travel plans for early next year are in progress :-)

Have fun! - Volker

Get the newbie’s to consider the wreck course in Pattaya! I know I am being greedy, but maybe when my winter break starts around the Dec. 13-20 range it could be planned. I bet Benjamin and Richard from my IDC would consider it.

Good luck to all,

Steve

I'm sure Richard would love to come over! A round trip ticket A*dam-BKK may be just a bit too much though.

Bill is in a similar situation as you, if he's in BKK, it would work out just fine to complete the specialty...........

Camille, You're so right. Would love to do the wreckdiver specialty. And than the nightlife with you and Steve. Should be fun. But money says it all. C U next year.
