PADI IDC for November - December 2016 on Phuket has been completed
The PADI IDC for November - December 2016 on Phuket has been completed in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'.
It's been an interesting and fun ten days with a brand new schedule because Patrick couldn't be on Phuket until 25th November but he was already certified as a PADI Assistant Instructor, so now it was up to me to change the schedule around so we could make this work, and we sure did!
Sam also completed his PADI IDC staff Instructor course successfully during this period.
PADI IDC for November - December 2016 on Phuket has been completed; From left to right Steven, Sam, Ilse, Patrick and myself after the open water training dives at the Raya islands. Here we are on the way back after a good days out on the 'Dive Asia 5' with three good dives yesterday, two training dives and since all candidates met the performance requirements during the first two dives, the third dive of the day was a 'fun' dive with a DSD workshop thrown in at the beginning of the dive
Some hard work was involved though at times and we had plenty of work, presentations and workshops plus lots of exam practice thrown in for good measure before we got here! All course parts were completed yesterday after the open water training dives, which left us only with the closing of the November-December PADI IDC today and going through the details of the PADI IE which will start tomorrow morning.
The EFR Instructor course was also on the schedule for completion, after we started parts of this course two days ago. Still a busy but relaxed day and we could finish early, shortly after lunch.
Tomorrow is an early bird day, with the PADI IE scheduled to start at 7.30am, rise and shine ya'all and see you in the morning.
Please stay tuned for more updates on the EFR Instructor course and the PADI IE which will be completed Sunday around noon.
If you're interested in participating in a PADI IDC program with me, the very last PADI IDC of this year i about to start 9th December on Koh Phangan, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Haad Yao Divers', followed by the very first PADI IDC program in 2017, scheduled to start 10th January on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' and this is followed by a PADI IDC scheduled to start 26th January on Koh Lanta, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Blue Planet Divers', putting it smack in the middle of the Chinese New Year holiday.
