PADI Instructor Development Update 2012 on Koh Tao, Thailand

PADI Instructor Development Update 2012 on Koh Tao, Thailand

This morning at 8.30am the registration process started and by 9am we had a kick off of the PADI Instructor Development Update 2012 on Koh Tao in Thailand. A total of 15 PADI Course Directors, Master Instructors and IDC Staff Instructors showed up for the update.

The Instructor Development Update, ready to start

Plenty of topics were discussed, ranging from the new PADI rebreather courses to the development and impact of the Chinese market on South East Asia as a region. New standard changes related to Instructor Development were discussed and before we knew it the various presentations, breaks and lunch were over.

Colin at the right, presenter of the update

Colin Melrose was the presenter for the update, but he got caught by a bug that seems to be doing the rounds on Koh Tao, it caught me yesterday and he wasn't feeling too well, hence PADI Examiner Rob Scammell stepped in to take a couple of presentations out of Colin's hands.

An interesting afternoon, as usual with thanks to Colin, Rob and the attending PADI Instructor Developers.
