Another 100% score on a PADI IE, December 2008 is done and dusted!

Another 100% score on a PADI IE, December 2008 is done and dusted!

Steven and Mikhail successfully completed the December 2008 PADI IE. Well done guys!

As usual they started last Tuesday with the orientation, with almost 30 other evenly nervous fellow candidates. This is how the classroom looked like just before the orientation kicked off.
Since good luck has nothing to do with their performance anymore, this is the closing slide of the orientation, presented by PADI examiners Thomas Knedlik and Rob Scammell.

They both passed the exams with flying colors and yesterday saw them in action for their Knowledge Development presentation and in the afternoon it was time for their Open Water segment. Here they both are shortly before boarding the boat.
They passed both segments of the IE with very strong scores, both scoring a 5.0 (the highest score possible) on one of their two Open Water presentations.

Today the last segment was on the menu, the confined water presentation and a skill circuit consisting of 5 skills. Once more, this was dealt with in a very confident way and they both had impressive scores.
The picture above shows Steven and Mikhail listening intently to Rob’s briefing, together with other candidates during this IE.

At last, the official picture of this PADI IE; from left to right; Steven Wainwright (OWSI), Rob Scammell (PADI Examiner), Camille Lemmens (PADI Course Director) and Mikhail Shelan (OWSI).

Now it’s off to Samui, for our IDC/IE party with a nice buffet dinner at Bongoes and than most likely off to downtown Chaweng for a few celebration drinks. On Saturday we continue with the EFRI course.
