PADI Specialty Instructor training on Phuket during June 2017

PADI Specialty Instructor training on Phuket during June 2017


It was time for PADI Specialty Instructor training on Phuket during June 2017 in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'. Before I start the July PADI IDC program on Phuket, it is time to look back at what we did last month!

Adrian and Kevin participated in a few PADI Instructor level specialties between them. Kevin actually added an extra day to his stay, to complete all the training he wanted to do and we had Jamie as a special guest who completed her DPV Instructor course and the Gas Blender course.

Adrian and Kevin both became Enriched Air Instructors and Emergency Oxygen Provider Instructors, since they're included in my PADI IDC programs. However, on top of these Instructor level specialties, Adrian took on the DPV (Diver Propulsion Vehicle) and DUP (Digital Underwater Photography) Instructor specialties.

Kevin took on the Instructor level specialties for Self-Reliant diver (including the Self reliant diver level course), Underwater Naturalist and Underwater Navigation.
Enough to keep us out of trouble for a few days and have a good time and enjoyable dives on the boat.

And fun we had! Look at the picture below, a picture says more than a thousand words! We had great dives and saw some nice underwater marine life, new nudibranches, a pyramid box fish, harlequin shrimps (well, supposedly that is) and a big octopus to name a few.

We also dived the wrecks at Raya Yai in Bay one, at least the days we found them! There's still one more wreck to be discovered. Something to look out for!

Jamie, who is or was an Instructor at Dive Asia and hopefully will be again soon, after her current job on a super yacht will end. For this new job she needed the DPV Instructor course and the Gas Blender course, since she is in charge of all dive activities on the super yacht, including filling tanks.
It was my pleasure to have being able to work with Jamie on these two courses. Good luck on your new adventures!
