PADI IDC Staff Instructor course in November 2017 in Moalboal, Philippines

Peter participated in the PADI IDC Staff Instructor course in November 2017 in Moalboal, Philippines in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Neptune Diving Adventure' at Panagsama Beach.

This was a challenging and interesting course for me because Peter is a very experienced diver and instructor. And not only for PADI! He's also an SSI instructor and the equivalent of the PADI IDCS Instructor and for CMAS he is the equivalent of a Course Director.

Interestingly enough, he took his PADI IDC some ten year with a PADI Course Director who was not only on the same PADI Course Director Training Course, but even in the same group as me! A small world indeed and nice to hear about Martin in Hamburg, Germany again.

Peter has also a couple of thousand dives logged, so he's not by any means a newcomer but in contrast a very experienced diver and instructor. But I think I mentioned that already. We knew each other already, since his soon to be wife, Irish, completed her PADI IDC with me in December 2014 and her PADI IDCS Instructor course with me in July 2016, during my previous PADI IDC here in Moalboal.
At those times Peter was managing the dive center in a local resort but now he's also part f the staff of PADI 5* IDC Center 'Neptune Diving Adventure' at Panagsama Beach.

The November 2017 PADI IDC was a good program with two very strong candidates, so it seemed fitting that Peter participated in this particular program. It was fun to work with him and I think we both learned a few bits and pieces from each other. I real win-win situation and a pleasure to be in, with him!
As if the PADI IDCS course alone wasn't enough, Peter also participated in both the self reliant diver and PADI instructor courses as well in the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Instructor course. Showing that you're really never too old to learn!

Great to have you on board for this Peter, I'm already looking forward to the next PADI IDC in Moalboal, come next year July/August and meet you again, at the latest!

Are you already a PADI Instructor and are considering taking the next step? The PADI IDC Staff Instructor course may be just what you are looking for.
Get in touch with me for more details about what the course entails and who knows, maybe we see each other soon! 

Come and join me for the next PADI IDC Staff Instructor courses, always scheduled a day ahead of the actual start of the PADI IDC programs at each location. For the PADI IDC Staff Instructor courses the start dates are as follow; 4th December on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia', followed by monthly programs in 2018, 5th January on Koh Lanta, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Blue Planet Divers', 19th January on Koh Phangan, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Haad Yao Divers, 22nd February in Khao Lak, Thailand in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Sea Dragon'.
