Koh Lanta PADI IDC October/November 2010 with Scubafish is done

Koh Lanta PADI IDC October/November 2010 with Scubafish is done

Today we're completing the last Staff presentations, candidate knowledge development presentations and confined water presentations. Tomorrow we will review a standards exam and do final counseling plus the EFR Instructor course and it will be officially a done deal for having completed the first IDC taught by me on Koh Lanta in conjunction with Scubafish!

We had loads of fun and had plenty of presentation and open water time! The above picture shows Heidi giving a confined water briefing.

Phil and Richard worked hard for their respective IDCS instructor rating and to gain more experience in all IDC sections and parts for the PADI Course Director application is being sent off, early next month.

We also had some interesting Open Water dives, one involving a capsized long tail boat which came in handy for some Search & Recovery practice looking for and lifting out the engine block of said long tail boat! Because of this we ended up in Koh Haa, a great dive site near Koh Lanta with excellent conditions and visibility. I don't think I taught an IDC yet with so much visibility during an Open Water dive!

All in all a great course and I'm looking forward to the PADI IE which will be held during 9th and 10th November where my students should kick some serious ass!

Look out for more updates and the next IDC will start in Kao Lak 17th November, still time to sing up for that one!
