PADI IE April 2009; mission completed

Rob passed all 4 PADI IE exam segments on Koh Tao and thus can call himself a PADI OWSI as of today.
After all the work during the IDC, it’s good to now be able to kick back for a few days before we continue with the Instructor Specialty training.

Two days ago the IE kicked off with the orientation. There were 39 participants and 3 PADI Examiners.

A room full of nervous IE candidates

This morning Rob completed the last segment, after the Theory part, the Knowledge Development and the Open Water segments, it was today the turn for Confined Water.
All was well, with Rob on the far left during a briefing of one of his fellow candidates.

Here’s the official picture, from left to right; myself, Rob and Rob the PADI Examiner.
