Testimonial by Patrick of the November 2016 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand

Testimonial by Patrick of the November 2016 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand


Yesterday I received this Testimonial by Patrick of the November 2016 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'.

Patrick signed up for out PADI after having checked various options that are out and available out there and it looks like he didn't regret it! This, the November-December 2016 PADI IDC on Phuket, was also my first PADI IDC during which I first completed all so called 'online' presentations split evenly over two days, before Patrick streamed in, since he was already a PADI Assistant Instructor. This went very well and much better than I expected and it was an absolute pleasure to have Patrick in the classroom as well! He's witty, funny and smart and he dives in cold water in dry suits in Swiss lakes at altitude, actually in his brand new Mares xr kevlar. How cool can you be?
Last rumor I heard coming out of Switzerland that all of his freind are now in hiding, since Patrick wants to teach them scuba diving now! :-) 
Joking aside, Patrick will be an excellent instructor and he will deliver and conduct great courses for his friends in the Swiss lakes.

Also to you many thanks for taking out the time to write this testimonial Patrick, it's much appreciated. here it is, time to catch up on your German;

Die Brevetierung zum PADI OWSI ist das Ziel für alle Teilnehmer eines IDC's.
Eine optimale Vorbereitung und eine kompetente Unterstützung sind das wichtigste zum erfolgreichen Abschluss.
Durch Camille wurden wir während über einer Woche perfekt auf den IE vorbereitet und haben diesen alle mit einem super Ergebnis abgeschlossen.
Wir durften alle von seiner langjährigen Erfahrung profitieren und unseren Rucksack für die Zukunft als Tauchlehrer füllen.
Dank einer kleinen Gruppe konnte sich Camille viel Zeit für Fragen nehmen.
Für mich persönlich war es eine sehr gute Entscheidung am IDC bei Camille teilzunehmen.
Seine offene und fröhliche Art hat den Kurs zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis gemacht.
Zum Schluss möchte ich mich bei dir Camille und auch bei den beiden anderen Kandidaten Ilse, Steven und Sam (Staff Instructor) für die tolle Zeit in Phuket bedanken.
Ich hoffe euch bald irgendwo auf der Welt wieder zu sehen und wünsche allen zukünftigen IDC Kandidaten von Camille viel Spass und Erfolg.

To get certified as a PADI OWSI is the goal for all participants in an IDC. A perfect preparation and having skilled support are the most important assets to achieve successful graduation.
Camille made sure that we were perfectly prepared for the PADI IE during the IDC week and consequently we all completed the PADI IE with great results.
We were all allowed to profit from his extended experience and we could fill our personal instructor backpacks with things we can use in the future.
Due to being in a small group, Camille could take plenty of time to answer various questions.
For me personally it was a very good decision to participate in Camille's IDC program.
His open and good-humored personality made the course an unforgettable event.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Camille and the other IDC candidates Ilse, Steven and Sam (Staff Instructor) for the great times we had on Phuket.
I hope to meet all of you soon, somewhere in the world and wish for all of Camille's future IDC candidates a lot of fun and success.

See you there,
Camille
