PADI Member Forum 2010 on Koh Samui

PADI Member Forum 2010 on Koh Samui

Yesterday Thailand's regional manager Hans Ullrich presented the yearly PADI Member Forum on Koh Samui.
This years seminar took place at the Kandaburi resort in Chaweng, a nice change of scenery.

Hans talked us through the various upcoming changes, including lots of information about e-Learning, Discover Scuba Diving and the Open Water diver- and Nitrox courses now opening up to computer based teaching, leaving the RDP Tables optional and about some of the new PADI materials that are coming on the market real soon.

It was also a good moment to catch up with the various other instructors and dive center owners on the island and with 24 people showing, it was a good turn out for Koh Samui.

Looking at the picture of me and Hans above, it looks like he is in need of a new shirt though comparing it to last years Forum.
