So far we've been in the pool every day, for skill circuit practice and yesterday for their first confined water presentations, which they both successfully passed. Today will be a 'dry' day

Everything is moving along nicely and come the 9th September, we should be able to complete the IDC and the EFRI course, which will allow us to move over to Koh Tao come 10th September to start the PADI IE.
