The PADI IDC Staff Instructor course on Koh Phangan for December 2016 has been in full progress and is taught in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Haad Yao Divers' on Koh Phangan.
Giovanni and me started his IDC Staff Instructor course two days ago on 8th December and we're well into the course now, going hand in hand with the current PADI IDC on Koh Phangan.
This is the 8 PADI IDC Staff Instructor course I teach year, never before did I have this many candidates during one year that participated in the IDC Staff Instructor course with me. Nice to see and good for me to see the enthusiasm and interest in continual education at this high level and interesting for me to share my knowledge and experience with these highly trained dive educators.
PADI IDC Staff Instructor course on Koh Phangan for December 2016; Giovanni completing his theory exams, which he passed with flying colors.
The only thing left for him to complete are giving presentations in the classroom and in confined water and demonstrating a skill circuit, which should all happen tomorrow, the first day we actually go to the confined water during this PADI IDC and he needs to audit a complete PADI IDC, which is now well under way.
Stay tuned for more updates and to find out about Giovanni's progress.
In the meantime, if you're interested in participating in a PADI IDC Staff Instructor course, you can do so during each scheduled PADI IDC in 2017, at all locations. If possible, the IDC Staff instructor will start a day previous to the start of the PADI IDC.
The next scheduled PADI IDC programs start 10th January and 9th February on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Asia Divers', followed by 26th January on Koh Lanta, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Blue Planet Divers' and 22nd February in Khao Lak, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Sea Dragon'.
See you there,
