The PADI IDC for August 2017 on Phuket has reached the halfway mark in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'.
By this time we're well under steam and a lot of ground has already been covered. Knowledge development is in full swing, confined water has been sorted out, theory exams are on the menu tomorrow morning and open water training will see us on the Dive Asia's boat on Monday to the Raya islands.
Plenty of presentations by me have been delivered and there are only four more to go! Later this week we will also conduct the EFR Instructor course and the Emergency Oxygen provider Instructor course. Plenty of things to keep us busy and out of trouble!

PADI IDC for August 2017 on Phuket has started


The PADI IDC for August 2017 on Phuket has started in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'. We actually started already yesterday!
At Dive Asia's Scuba Diving Training Center at Kata Big Rock we're in full swing. Peter from Hong Kong and It from Thailand are the August PADI IDC candidates and it seems we have a good group going.
Strong performances and results so far with the five theory exams and first skill practices in the confined water. The first couple of presentations by me are out of the way and the first couple of workshops have been completed. Some of the workshops we conducted were about control, the CESA (controlled Emergency Swimming Ascent) in confined water and lift bag use. Just a few of the workshops and there are plenty more to come.

So far so good, two days in and plenty more to come. Some hard work and excitement is in front of Peter and It but also some fun moments will be part of the IDC.

Testimonial by Sean Brennan of the July 2017 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand

Testimonial by Sean Brennan of the July 2017 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand


Here's the second one for last month, the Testimonial by Sean Brennan of the July 2017 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'.

Sean came all the way over from Colorado in the USA to participate in his PADI IDC with us, after a referral of the dive shop owner where he completed all of his scuba diving courses. It's always good to know that people remember you!

Right now, about three weeks later, he's still on Phuket and working on his plan to become an active instructor on Phuket. The legal side is under investigation and in progress and housing has already been secured. It's good to see how your dream and plan are slowly coming together Sean, step by step. Excellent work!

You will be fine, looking at how you handled yourself during the July IDC on Phuket and the PADI IE. It's all about being organized!

So here we are for Sean's testimonial;

I just recently took Camille's IDC and MSDT Prep course during July in Phuket and I can't speak highly enough about it.  Camille is incredibly knowledgeable in so many areas related to diving that it makes the course fun, interesting and in my opinion the best choice to prepare you for the I.E. and for a future career in the dive industry.  Camille takes the time to make sure you understand the information completely and was able to answer any questions I had.  He connects with his students and makes sure they feel confident heading into the examination.  
His attention to detail and teaching attitude like I said earlier makes the class that much more enjoyable and informative.  
Getting to learn from one of the best only increased my confidence going forward as a dive instructor.  
His work with you doesn't stop once the class is over either, he is always there to help and answer any further questions you have about diving, working as an instructor or life in another country.  He knows multiple languages and although I had no problems because we both spoke English, he was able to get French materials and help my fellow classmate (who was French but could speak decent English) fully understand the material and feel confident going forward into his I.E. as well.  

Again I can't thank him enough for being my teacher and helping me start my own career.  If you are looking for someone to do your IDC with look no further, you've found the best.

Thanks for taking the time out to write this testimonial, it's much appreciated and it will be good to see you progress on Phuket and get involved in the dive world there.

Testimonial by Michael Klausz of the July 2017 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand

Testimonial by Michael Klausz of the July 2017 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand


Here's one more, this time a Testimonial by Michael Klausz of the July 2017 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand, in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia'.

During the July 2017 PADI IDC on Phuket, we started out as strangers at the beginning of the IDC program but grew together over the course of the program and in the end became friends. This is also what's reflected in Michael's testimonial and it's in French, so an added dimension to understand what he actually says for the non French speakers among us.

He does mention the additional help in French he received, by means of training aids in French and also my limited knowledge of French dive terminology helped.

It was good to have you aboard for the July IDC, Michael. Although he is still fairly young, he already had a career as a fire fighter in a Paris suburb behind him and had a good sense of humor as well.

It was very good to see how you booked progress during the IDC program and how you were able to kill the PADI IE at the end. Now it's off to Europe and work as a dive instructor there and put in use all the things you learned during the IDC. I'm looking forward to hear some updates how you will fare during that process. I'm also confident that you can handle this and will do the right thing(s). Good luck and enjoy your courses and work on Malta!

Here we go with Michael's testimonial, in French, so maybe get your dictionary out;

 Bonjour à tous, je suis vraiment très satisfait de L'IDC que j'ai suivi avec DIVE Asia et plus particulièrement avec Camille durant juillet 2017.
Je suis français avec un niveau d'anglais correct et parlant aussi espagnol, mais il est vrai que pour la partie théorie notamment je souhaitait avoir un maximum de support français, dive asia et Camille mon donc commandé mon crew pack en français ainsi que les examens ecrit, et le gros plus avec Camille et qu'il parle un peu français donc quand j'avais quelques problèmes de compréhension il pouvait m'aiguiller! Le deuxième gros plus est que pour la casi totalité des supports des cours ( PDF, vidéos ) Camille les possèdes aussi en français et n'hésitera pas à vous les donner par clée USB.
Cependant de mon avis, je pense que pour faire ce travail il est tres important de parler plusieurs langues, et faire son IDC en grande parti en anglais et vraiment trés intéressant car vous vous sentirez vraiment plus à l'aise à la fin et encore plus fier de votre réussites, il faut aussi savoir que pendant les examens vous n'aurais pas forcément un course director qui parle français, donc pour tous ce qui est des présentations ( cours, présentation milieu protégé, et milieu naturel ) il est vraiment cool d'avoir confiance en soit pour les présenter en anglais si vous n'avez pas le choix.
Il y a plein d'école pour faire vôtres IDC mais avec Dive Asia je vous garanti que vous pourrez travailler au calme et très efficacement ! Quand l'examen arrivera se ne sera plus qu'une formalité si vous bossez comme il le faut.
Encore un grand merci a Dive asia et Camille pour avoir accompagné m'a réussite à L' IE. 

As always Michael, it's much appreciated that you took the time out to write this testimonial!
