PADI IDC July 2016 in Moalboal, Philippines has been completed

PADI IDC July 2016 in Moalboal, Philippines has been completed


That's right, the PADI IDC July 2016 in Moalboal, Philippines has been completed and so has Irish's PADI IDCS course all in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Neptune Diving Adventure' at Panagsama Beach near Moalboal in the Philippines. I find myself already back in Cebu City, writing this blog, since tomorrow morning I will leave very early for a flight to Manila and on to Bangkok and back home on Koh Samui, since early next week, 26th July I already start a next PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand.

The 26th July is also the day the PADI IE starts in Moalboal, making this is the first time that I will not physically be able to attend a PADI IE in the Philippines. The fours candidates are in good hands however with PADI Master Instructor Johan, who staffed again during this PADI IDC and with brand new PADI IDCS Instructor Irish.

The course itself was fun and we managed a lot of work, workshops, presentations, exams, confined and open water dives, after hours extra help all in a nine day period. It was intense as well! Three out four candidates should do well during the PADI IE, Colin, Jimmy and Nils but Froi is still struggling with the theory and the standards exams. There is progress each day and he met performance requirements but we are not 100% sure how he will do during the PADI IE exams. He is being helped though, each day during the IDC and until the PADI IE will start and he is putting a lot of effort into it, so we hope for the best for him. If it would be decided on attitude, he would pass with flying colors!
It's going to be exciting, especially being so far away.

More news will follow in due time, we will keep you updated.

If you're interested in participating in one of my PADI IDC programs, the next two PADI IDC's are scheduled on Phuket, Thailand with start dates of 26th July and 23rd August in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' and after these two porgrams we're back in Moalboal in the Philippines for a new PADI IDC here scheduled to start 14th September.
