The PADI IDC on Koh Samui, Thailand is already half way

From one PADI IDC straight into the other, from Gili Air in Indonesia via an Instructor Development Update on Bali to an IDC on Koh Samui in Thailand within just a few days. 
The travelling lifestyle of a PADI Course Director!

PADI IDC, Koh Samui, May 2013

Plenty of classroom presentations and skill circuits have been done and dusted and now the more hands on confined and open water presentations are coming up over the next couple of days.

Confined water briefing with Matsui, Sota and Bernhard

As usual the nationalities tumble over each other during my IDC's and this time it's no different with Bernhard from Austria (but living in Sweden near the Finnish border) and Sota, Matsui and all the other staff, Nobu, Hadji and Ami coming from Japan.

A few more days to go, inclusive of an EFR Instructor course and the PADI IE will be knocking on our door, so stay tuned for more updates.

My next PADI IDC starts 12th June on Koh Samui in Thailand again, followed by an IDC scheduled to start 6th July on Malapascua in the Philippines, 31st July on Koh Phangan in Thailand and 18th August on Gili Air in Indonesia.

See you there!
