Although I have no comparison, it doesn't take much to know that it doesn't get better than the IDC course I did with Camille at the end of August.
After an exhausting 10wk DM course I went into the IDC very ill. This illness carried on until about day 4 of the course BUT Camille's light-hearted, fun yet precise approach really got me through each day and he was always checking in with me that i was ok.
I am dyslexic so my attention and interpretation of information can get slightly off track, especially during presentations and theory exam perpetration but again Camille was conscious of this during his lessons to the point that he would give time out of class hours to help me understand.
The knowledge he shared with us during the course was priceless. My understanding is that ALL IDC's are tough and require a lot of energy from everyone but it really is about who is there to help you get through it and make sure it is fun and I'm really grateful that I had Camille to do exactly that. The diving was the best part of the day (that's the reason we were all there..) as we were out of the class room and in a beautiful environment. The skills circuit, confined water and open water sessions were covered in detail and the advice and tips Camille gave us was gold dust.
If you are looking for a Course Director to be great role model who's professional, approachable and down to Earth then look no further - THANK YOU Camille
