The October/November 2010 IDC on Koh Lanta is under way

The October/November 2010 IDC on Koh Lanta is under way

Today we completed the prep course, that is, Simon, Heidi and Dom. After the IDCS course started two days ago, now we're already in full swing for the actual IDC.

As usual during the prep course, the three candidates, pictured above from left to right, Simon, Heidi and Dom, completed with very high scores their 5 theory exams.

Dom during his Rescue exercise # 7 practice

That always takes a lot of pressure off of everybody and the afternoons were spend practicing the PADI skill circuit, where once more some excellent performances were delivered.

Heidi practicing her Rescue exercise # 7

After each days skill circuit and various workshops covering 'control' and rescue skills, there was the obligatory practice of Rescue diver course exercise # 7.

Simon on rescue exercise # 7

The first day we had a lot of rain and grey clouds on Koh Lanta but today was all sunshine and a warmer pool!
Tomorrow we continue with the daily scheduled IDC classroom presentations, and more pool work. Richard who's staffing this IDC will also get involved during the presentations and grading/critiquing the candidates as part of his training to come a new PADI Course Director on the block whilst Phil can now relax a bit, after having completed his IDCS pre-assessment and experience an IDC from a staff perspective.

Stay tuned for more up and coming updates.
