PADI IE for February 2017 on Phuket has been successfully completed
The PADI IE for February 2017 on Phuket has been successfully completed and all four candidates of the February PADI IDC on Phuket in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' on Phuket passed the PADI IE with flying colors and are now brand new PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.
PADI IE for February 2017 on Phuket has been successfully completed; After the successful PADI IE on Phuket, time for a picture, from left to right; Robin, Iris, Robert (PADI Examiner), Staffan and Christophe. Well done guys, congratulations.
Two days with waiting around, getting nervous and short bursts of action finally are behind them, with the result we hoped for and all the hard work during the recent February PADI IDC has paid off in big ways.
The exams went down very well, after some sweat and tears (well, tears....) of some candidates, the classroom presentations turned out to be easy going and the last part of day one, the confined presentation and skill circuit were almost home runs.
That left the open water presentation on Sunday morning, the part that leaves all nervous since there's no remake in this part of the PADI IE. However, all went well and with another set of great scores, they passed the open water dive and the Rescue exercise # 7.
Yesterday evening we had a celebration dinner together and the party started to gear up, but whatever happens on Phuket during IE parties stays in Facebook, oops, I mean, stays on Phuket, but fun was had!
Today everybody has a well deserved day off to cure the respective hangovers and tomorrow Robin and Staffan will come with me on the boat for the Deep dive and underwater navigation instructor specialties.
If you're interested to join the ranks of the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors, your next opportunity will be on Phuket, Thailand 7th March and 11th April in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia', followed by a PADI IDC on 27th March on Koh Lanta, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Blue Planet Divers' and this is followed by a PADI IDC program scheduled to start 26th April on Koh Phangan, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Haad Yao Divers'.
See you there,
