PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand for September 2016 has started

PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand for September 2016 has started


It's that time of the month again and the PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand for September 2016 has started, in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' at the Kata Big Rock scuba diving training facilities.

We already kicked off the current PADI IDC on Phuket yesterday, with a seemingly very nice group of candidates, originating from Iran, Finland and Sweden.

We're slowly warming up and have a few things out of the way already, like the necessary paperwork, a practice run on the theory exams, the first skill circuit in the pool and the first presentation by me. 
It's still early days and there's a lot more to come.

The group is small, which allows for lots of personal attention from me and also from Nikoo, who is completing her PADI IDC Staff Instructor course.

PADI IDCS Instructor course for September 2016 started on Phuket, Thailand

PADI IDCS Instructor course for September 2016 started on Phuket, Thailand 


Today the PADI IDCS Instructor course for September 2016 started on Phuket, Thailand with Nikoo from Iran and in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'.

The PADI IDC Staff Instructor course I always try to start a day early, just before the start of the regular PADI IDC at each location, so there's time to get all of the prerequisites and performance requirements done and out of the way. The PADI IDC Staff Instructor course basically runs over three days, the two days of the Prep IDC course and the additional day before the start of the IDC Prep course.

After Rouzbeh's PADI IDC Staff Instructor course earlier this year in May, Nikoo is the second student ever from Iran for one of my PADI IDC Staff Instructor courses.
Today we completed all the red tape involved with the course, and moved on to the theory exams, which Nikoo all passed with 100%, an excellent performance and result. We continued with some presentations about the PADI IDCS Instructor course, given by me and we completed the day with evaluation training with a set of videos from PADI.

This all went well and we called the training a day, to be continued tomorrow and the day after with a classroom or knowledge development presentation, a skill circuit and a confined water presentation by Nikoo. A busy schedule ahead and lots to teach and learn!

Come and join me for your PADI IDCS Instructor course, with lots of experience to be shared by me to prepare you for role as PADI IDC Staff Instructor, after completion of the course.
Your next opportunities will be 24th October and 22nd November on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' and with the last PADI IDC and PADI IDCS Instructor course of the year on 8th December on Koh Phangan, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Haad Yao Divers', 

See you there,

My PADI IDC programs have lots of hands on workshops, where you learn, find out about and practice things like know tying, CESA in confined water and in open water, descents and ascents, group control, rescue exercise # 7 (unconscious diver at the surface), DSD (Discover Scuba Diving) and a few more.

You can also participate in the free of cost 'Prep IDC', which consists of two days of skill circuit practice and to find out everything you ever wanted to know about the 5 PADI theory exams but never dared to ask.

On site is also a restaurant where we will enjoy lunch each day during the IDC and we can also accommodation at the same premises.
