Testimonial by Sandy of the March 2016 PADI IDC on Koh Phangan, Thailand

Testimonial by Sandy of the March 2016 PADI IDC on Koh Phangan, Thailand


Today I received this really flattering Testimonial by Sandy of the March 2016 PADI IDC on Koh Phangan, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Haad Yao Divers' on Koh Phangan.
It was a pleasure to have her around for her PADI IDCS Instructor course, especially to be able to exchange experiences from our different working and teaching ways. Her weekend courses and divers and our all day of the week all year round holiday destination courses and divers.
Different experiences and schedules to follow whilst teaching the same courses, a very interesting experience for both all parties involved to learn from each other experiences.
Great to see and read that she had a good time, well Sandy, you also did a great job during this PADI IDC by translating everything into German for Roberto, who also participated in his PADI IDCS course.
Thanks for having joined our course and 'PADI' works in mysterious ways, it was faith that we found each other for this course!

From March 7 to March 15, I had the great opportunity - and luck! - to join Camille's IDC on Koh Phangan as an IDC Staff candidate. After having taught diving in the lake of Zurich in Switzerland, it was for one thing very interesting to see how resorts and dive centers work with "holiday divers" in warm waters and how they solve their own logistical issues. What is the best about the course, however, is definitely the Course Director himself! Camille does a wonderful job in being a dedicated member of the diving industry and above everything he's a fantactic role model for the instructors-to-be by being strict but always adding fun to something that is in the end still somehow serious business. I will now start doing the first part of IDC courses for new instructors here in Switzerland and have quite some respect for this new challenge. For me, however, it was great to take diving education to the next level - teaching others how to teach - and nobody could have showed me better how to get about this than Camille. I'm very much looking forward to seeing him again hopefully soon.

If this testimonial raised your interest for participating in one of my PADI IDC or PADI IDCS Instructor courses, your next opportunities will be 11th April in Khao Lak, Thailand followed by monthly programs on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia', starting 3rd May and this is followed by 7th June and 29th June.

See you there,
