PADI Specialty Instructor training with Glenn in May 2017

PADI Specialty Instructor training with Glenn in May 2017


We've just finished the PADI Specialty Instructor training with Glenn in May 2017 about a week ago, in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'.

We had a great couple of days diving around the Ray islands off Phuket and near Koh Phi Phi after the recent MAY PADI IDC and PADI IE on Phuket.

Three good dives during which he learned to get comfortable with the self reliant gear and set up.

Glenn participated in five specialties, besides the two that are currently included in my PADI IDC programs. Currently included are the Nitrox or Enriched Air- and Emergency Oxygen Provider Instructor courses.

Besides these two PADI Specialties, Glenn also choose to participate in the Dee-, Wreck- DUP (Digital Underwater Photography), DPV and Self reliant Instructor level courses.

In total we spent three days three days diving on the Dive Asia boat, with two trips to the Raya islands and one trip around Koh Phi Phi.

It was a good couple days of diving and we had lots of fun and saw some cool stuff underwater during some relaxed and mostly long dives. Including a couple of nice nudibranches.
