Today I received this great testimonial from Simon Gurney of the June 2015 PADI IDC on Koh Samui, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Easy Divers'. It's much appreciated that you took the time out to write this and I wish you good luck in your further PADI Instructor career. It was my pleasure to have you in one of my PADI IDC's (text continues below the picture);
Simon with Brendon, the PADI Examiner after completion of the June 2015 PADI IDC on Koh Samui in Thailand
I recently successfully completed the June PADI IDC by Course Director Camille Lemmens, this has been the culmination of many months of work and preparation, and I would like to take the opportunity to thank Camille for his excellent course and the support and direction he has provided during our time together.
I actually took some time in researching the Course director whom I felt would be a good fit for my requirements, and I’m happy to say that I reached the right conclusion, As I had completed my Divemaster in 2006 and done very little diving in the 8 years since I was anxious in how rusty my skills and knowledge were in becoming a PADI Instructor, and having decided to talk things through with Camille before I knew it I was on the path towards Instructor.
Camille worked out a tailored IDC preparation schedule for me and quickly got me up to IDC level on my skills, a perfectly balanced approach as I scored 5s in all my skills on the final PADI IE.
The IDC with Camille In Samui in Thailand in June was a breeze, all very comfortable and I could not have asked for a better course, a small group of 5 who all quickly came together as a team to help each other through the course, and happily all passed very successfully, (Thanks Guys).
I along with one of the other IDC Candidates completed a number of Instructor Specialities with Camille after the successful completion of our Instructor Examination and he gave us huge amounts of useful advice and techniques for future courses and specialities, and would highly recommend doing the Sidemount Instructor and Deep Instructor specialities.
Having started 6 months ago feeling too old and too rusty somehow with Camilles help I’m now a PADI Scuba Instructor with tons of Specialities, Thanks again for your dedication and support and sharing your vast experience with us.
If this inspires you to become a PADI Instructor, please contact me for information about my PADI IDC programs. The next program is scheduled to start 25th August on Phuket, Thailand in German and English languages with two PADI Course Directors, followed by 14th September in Moalboal in the Philippines and this is followed by a program scheduled to start 26th September in Puerto Galera in the Philippines.
See you there,
