PADI Specialty Instructor training on Phuket and in Khao Lak
After the recent PADI IE on Phuket, it was a hectic few days with PADI Specialty Instructor training on Phuket and in Khao Lak.
The day after the PADI IE, Monday, Patrick of the recent November-December PADI IDC on Phuket went on the boat with me for the two dives of the PADI Instructor specialty 'Deep diver' and one dive for the Instructor specialty of 'Underwater Navigation'.
Patrick and me on the boat after a wavy trip back to Chalong pier on Phuket and with two deep dives and an underwater navigation dive under our belts.
We dived at Raya Noi and Raya Yai and we had three good dives that day, despite the fairly strong waves. Especially the ride back to Phuket was choppy! It was all worth it though and it's always a great way to end an IDC, with doing what we love to do, going down!
On top of that Patrick has now besides the two already PADI Instructor specialties, also the Enriched Air or Nitrox Instructor specialty in the bag. It was my pleasure Patrick and I hope we see each other soon again!

Tuesday morning saw a very early start, 4am wake up call and 6am departure from Phuket, in order to start an Oxygen Provider Instructor course and a DSAT Gas Blender and DSAT Gas Blender Instructor course in Khao Lak at PADI 5* IDC Center 'Sea Dragon' with Philipp, before I moved on during the afternoon and took a ferry back to Koh Samui, back home.

Philipp was very much tuned into both courses and especially during the Gas Blender course he showed a lot of interest and he was on top of the course materials and outline.
It was short, brief and intensive but also my pleasure to have met you Philipp and to see how much you enjoyed being in the courses. Next time in Khao Lak, I know where we will meet up for a bite again!
