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!
