At long last, we have completed the November 2014 PADI IDC 2014 in Khao Lak in onjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center, 'Sea Dragon'! Nicely in time, everything is out of the way, all performance requirements met, all workshops done and over with and all exams passed, except one physics exam. One of the candidates is still trying to pass the physics exam, so two days are still available to get him to see the light and make physics into a friend!
After the Open Water dives, on our way back to the harbor. From left to right; Roman, Randy, Tom, myself, Andy, Lucinda, Ben, John and in front Fiona.
It was lots of time, although each individual candidates had their moments of doubt, frustration or fatigue at some stage. Nonetheless, it was a great effort and now they're ready to take on the PADI IE, next week Tuesday and Wednesday!
Before that, we will get the EFR Instructor course out of the way tomorrow and all candidates can enjoy a day off Monday, to relax, prepare or last minute study.
Except for Tom that is, who will complete his sidemount diver course with me on Monday.
Thanks to Fiona and Vee for staffing, it made life a lot easier for the candidates and for myself as well!
If you would like to join my next PADI IDC, 4th December a course starts in Moalboal in the Philippines, to be followed by the first IDC of 2015 which is scheduled to start 3rd January on Koh Lanta, Thailand and this is followed by 3rd February on Phuket, Thailand.
See you there,
