Testimonial by Denis of the January 2016 PADI IDC on Koh Lanta, Thailand
Here's a very nice testimonial by Denis of the January 2016 PADI IDC on Koh Lanta, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Blue Planet Divers' on Koh Lanta in Thailand.
It was great to have Denis in the January 2016 PADI IDC on Koh Lanta, a well balanced person with a great passion for diving and coming form a very different dive background, 'the dark side' as we jokingly said during the IDC. We did some great Instructor Specialty training dives and although we just missed a manta ray at Hin Daeng, we still had very enjoyable dives that day and I'm looking forward seeing you again for more diving and training! Thanks for the nice words Denis, it's much appreciated.
I entered the IDC in Koh Lanta, January 2016, taught by Camille Lemmens, with little anxiety for at least two reasons: one was the language (I am French and sometime having some difficulties to fully understand English) and the second fear was the fact that coming from CMAS teaching organization, I had really a very little knowledge about PADI system.
I have to say that Camille did an outstanding education effort to teach us with a lot of patience.
We were a small group of four, including another French guy, a Belgium and English ones. We received from Camille full attention and he gave us, individually, plenty of time to get feedback from its huge experience, giving at each course a lot of examples from its own diving adventures.
We really did a good and serious work during these two weeks in a very friendly ambiance and I have to say that I am proud to succeed in the IDC and IE, as well as the other guys. Thanks Camille for this experience really enjoyable; you are an excellent teacher and I learned a lot.
I had also the opportunity to pass three specialties with you, and we did very exciting dives together at Hin Daeng and Koh Haa. I can tell you: see you next time, in Philippines, for other specialties. Thanks for all.

Feel free to join one of my up and coming PADI IDC programs so you can enjoy and take advantage of my vast knowledge and experience within the dive industry and of diving and teaching diving itself. Your next opportunity will be 20th February in Khao Lak, Thailand, followed by 8th March on Koh Phangan, Thailand and come 30th March I will be back on Koh Lanta in Thailand again.
See you there,
