Before you know it; the PADI IDC and IDCS courses for March 2016 on Koh Phangan have been completed, in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Haad Yao Divers' on Koh Phangan, Thailand
It's an old cliche but time does fly when you're having fun and this was a fun course to teach and to be around for. Thanks to the four PADI IDC candidates and the three PADI IDCS Instructor course students for being such good and attentive but also fun class!

After all the hard work in the classroom, on the exams, the confined and open water dives plus all the various workshops it's now time to relax a bit, take it easy and in a weeks time it's show time again for the PADI IE here on Koh Phangan.

Today we tackle the EFR Instructor course after which I will return later today back to Koh Samui until the PADI IE is on the calendar 25th and 26th of this month. For the PADI IE I will come back over to Koh Phangan again, to give logistical and moral support to the candidates.

With this PADI IDC now in the bag, the candidates should be ready to pass the PADI IE but more importantly, they should be ready to be good and safe instructors in the real world, after the PADI IE.
This aspect is sometimes overlooked, due to focusing so much on the PADI IE but to me it's a lot more important to be a good and safe PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor after that exam.

The PADI IDC's I teach are seeing an emphasis on this and you have a step ahead in the competitive dive industry once you start looking for your first job as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

Come and join me for one of my PADI IDC programs, the next opportunity will be later this month, starting 30th May on Koh Lanta, Thailand, followed by 11th April in Khao Lak, Thailand and this is followed by either 3rd May on Phuket, Thailand or 7th May in Moalboal in the Philippines.

See you there,
Camille
