Looking back at the dive year 2015

Looking back at the dive year 2015

It's the time of the year to be looking back at the dive year 2015. It was not as busy as previous years for me with 8 PADI IDC's, but as each year, I came around and went places. Koh Lanta, Khao Lak and Phuket were on my list if places to teach at the West coast and in the Gulf of Thailand I was teaching on home ground; Koh Samui and in the Philippines I went to Moalboal three times this year.
I welcomed students from the USA, Switzerland, France, the UK, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Australia, Japan, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands.

PADI IDC November 2015 in Khao Lak, Thailand

With around 30 IDC candidates and one IDCS Instructor course being taught, it was not as busy as in previous years. There were however almost 100 Instructor specialties that I taught this year, 23 EFR  Instructors and Care for Children Instructors and some 13 EFR certifications at various levels.

PADI IDC in Moalboal, Philippines in November 2015

On top of this I also worked at the local Hyperbaric Chamber in Bang Rak on Koh Samui as both a tender and as an operator and I also presented a couple of presentations about box jelly fish and awareness. Both fields of work and interest will most likely see a follow up next year.

If you're interested in one of my PADI IDC's next year, please have a look at my PADI IDC schedule for 2016 and let me know if you have any questions.

Many thanks to the PADI 5* IDC Centers I worked with this year, 'Blue Planet Divers' on Koh Lanta, 'Sea Dragon' in Khao Lak, 'Kiwidiver' on Phuket, 'Easy Divers' on koh Samui and 'Neptune Diving Adventure' in Moalboal, Philippines.

See you all again next year,
