The September 2010 PADI AI course on Koh Phangan is in the bag!

The September 2010 PADI AI course on Koh Phangan is in the bag!

The first IDC on Koh Phangan (and the first IDC I'm conducting outside of Samui) has smooth sailing so far although there are also interesting discussions about the PADI system going on at times.
Today the Assistant Instructor course has finished and tomorrow we're going to enjoy a well deserved day off!

We completed a few skill circuits, as Aldo is proving in the picture above whilst he's recovering his regulator.

Joep is doing fine as well and today they passed a set of theory exams, the Open Water skills, a Rescue exercise # 7 (unconscious diver at the surface) and the 800 meter swim and on top of all this they also survived and sat through another curriculum presentation by me!

Daniel, one of the owners of Haad Yao divers on Koh Phangan is refreshing his IDCS skills during this IDC.

A picture of the master himself, a rare picture of me on this blog, during one of the skill circuits, observing the candidates, with thanks for the picture to Daniel.

Aldo and Joep after completing the 800 meters swim today. Off to a day tomorrow and than come Sunday, time for the OWSI course to kick off.
