Mission completed; The PADI IE for December 2009 is done and dusted

Mission completed; The PADI IE for December 2009 is done and dusted

During a three nervous roller coaster ride, also known as the PADI IE David, Thomas and Dijana are the newest PADI OWSI's or PADI Instructors under the sun.

They started off with a day in the classroom where all the theoretical stuff got out of the way. They listened to and sat through the IE Orientation and passed the 5 theory exams and the General Standards & Procedures exam with flying colours.

The next day saw them back in the classroom for their Knowledge Development presentation, where they kicked some serious ass and in the afternoon they went on a boat to Aow Leuk, a local Koh Tao dive site for their Open Water presentation, which again, they passed with very good scores.

Today they completed the last bit of this PADI IE, the confined water part, from left to right Thomas, Dijana and David being very happy directly after they got out of the water.

The official picture for this IDC and last IE of 2009, from left to right; George Wegmann (PADI Examiner), Gregory (who completed his Open Water of the IE this time around), Dijana, David, myself, James and Thomas.

See you next year for more IDC's and IE's.
