PADI IDC on Koh Phangan for December 2016 is half way
The PADI IDC on Koh Phangan for December 2016 is half way in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Haad Yao Divers' here on Koh Phangan.
Unfortunately Thomas had to pull out of the current PADI IDC after two days due to a groin rupture. Once he's operated upon, he will look into and try to join next year's PADI IDC on Koh Phangan, probably in May.
Other than that, thing are starting to shape up and take form in this last PADI IDC of the year. We already have done plenty of classroom presentations by me, some by the candidates, lots of confined water work, including skill circuit practice and presentations plus plenty of various workshops, ranging from control, to Discover Scuba Diving to descents and plenty in-between.
Right now theory exams are on the menu and later this week we will hit the open water for some training dives.
Giovanni is coming along well in his PADI IDC Staff Instructor course and is learning a lot about evaluating PADI IDC candidates, some ins and outs of new or revised PADI courses and in general, getting a new or updated perspective on the PADI system.

Come Monday 19th and Sunday 20th December, the PADI IE will be held here on Koh Phangan, and we expect three new PADI Instructors here! Still some hard work to be done in the meantime though!
Stay tuned, more updates will come this way and the guys need and appreciate the support!
If you're interested in participating in one of my PADI IDC programs, in 2017 there will be plenty of options available at different locations. Your first option will be 10th January on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Asia Divers' and I will be back on Phuket on 9th February, in-between I will be on Koh Lanta, Thailand as of 26th January in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Blue Planet Divers' and 22nd February you can join me in Khao Lak, Thailand for a PADI IDC program in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Sea Dragon'.
