PADI IDC in Khao Lak, school of April 2012, is in the bag
The current PADI IDC in Khao Lak is in the bag! Hugues completed all performance requirements and after plenty of classroom hours, confined and open water presentations, the Khao Lak April 2012 IDC is in the can.

Julia staffed this IDC and is now ready to apply for her next step in her PADI career; apply for the Master Instructor rating. Well done Julia and congratulations! After the December 2011 IDC in Khao Lak, this is the 2nd consecutive program she staffs in Khao Lak!

Hugues is now ready to participate in the PADI IE in Khao Lak starting 18th April. Besides the IDC, he also participates in the EFR Instructor course, some instructor specialty training and he goes on a live aboard in the Similan Islands. A nice little extra bonus when you take your IDC in Khao Lak, you're as close as you can get to the Similans!
Stefaan and Julia were staffing this IDC and can here be seen grading during Open Water
Stefaan completed his PADI IDCS course during this IDC in Khao Lak and is now to take on new challenges as a staff instructor. Congrats to him as well for achieving this next level of training!

It's been a fun program and I'm confident that Hugues will do well during the PADI IE. Soon he will be ready to start travelling as a PADI Instructor!
