PADI IDC on Phuket for September 2016 is half way

PADI IDC on Phuket for September 2016 is half way


The PADI IDC on Phuket for September 2016 is half way and we're in full swing, in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' at their facilities at Kata Big Rock on Phuket.

It's an international PADI IDC program, as always! Tahamtan is my first ever candidate from Iran, Oskari is from Finland and Tommy comes from Sweden.

We have been covering a lot of ground during recent days, including various skill circuit practicing sessions in the pool at Kata Big Rock, a couple of confined water presentations, various workshops, theory exams, classroom presentations by them and by me and tomorrow we should hit the open water and there's still lots more to come.

In the meantime, Nikoo is progressing really well in her PADI IDC Staff Instructor course and she's getting really strong on her evaluating skills. Well done so far Nikoo!

Its October on Phuket by now and we're at the tail end of the rainy or monsoon season and during this PADI IDC program we had a few times some rain, but weather conditions permitting, we should be on the boat tomorrow and go out to the Raya islands for our Open Water presentations, some more workshops (CESA, know tying, rescue) and for rescue exercise # 7 practice.
It's looking good though and the sun is out right now, so let's get wet!
