PADI IDC on Malapascua for March 2012 is halfway!

PADI IDC on Malapascua for March 2012 is halfway!

Time flies when you're having fun and that's the case during the Malapascua PADI IDC in the Philippines.

We've done test exams, classroom presentations by me and Sue, confined water presentations, classroom presentations by the students, rescue exercises and various workshops. We're in the midst of where the action is!

The weather has been amazing so far and I also managed to get some Specialty Instructor training dives in with St├ęphanie from France, who's visiting Malapascua just to get this training done. I'm lucky that the dives to Monad Shoal are early morning dives, meet at 5am, dive at 6am, which makes it convenient to schedule her specialty training.

Today the second set of theory exams and the first Open Water presentations are scheduled. It's always good to get wet during the IDC's after a day in the classroom!

Just a few more days and we will be going to Cebu City to attend the PADI IE and after that this road trip is over for a short while and I will be back in Thailand again, back home on Koh Samui, where another PADI IDC is waiting for me.

In the meantime, if you're interested in participating in one of my IDC's, the next three programs are scheduled in Thailand, beginning 19th March on Koh Samui, 8th April in Khao Lak and 22nd April on Koh Lanta. Contact me for more information in Thailand and Indonesia or for the Philippines.
