Testimonial by Tim Helmrath of the March 2018 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand
Here it is, the Testimonial by Tim Helmrath of the March 2018 PADI IDC on Phuket, Thailand in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' in Kata on Phuket.
This was the first PADI IDC I completely taught in German, which turned out to be a little bit more difficult than I initially expected it to be. But now worries, I managed, Tim understood everything and passed his PADI IE with flying colors and a few words have been added to the German 'Duden'!
Als resultat hat Tim den PADI IE 'dinamitisiert'! Klasse!
It was a good course and it was great having Tim around. I was a bit worried at first how he would react to being the only candidate for this PADI IDC program but it was almost what he hoped for. To add some more spice to the confined- and open water presentations, we joined my friend and fellow Platinum PADI Course Director Richard and his French colleague Nico and their students.
This made it also a bit more realistic for Tim, to be able to work with other IDC candidates. It all paid off nicely and we had good times and results as a result!
Tim, it was a real pleasure and I hope to meet you soon. It's a small world after all! Diving is in your blood, now you just need to get used to being a recreational dive instructor, it's bubbles all the way and all the time now!

Here we go, with Tim's testimonial in full;
Despite my quite advanced OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Diving) sickness before the IDC (33 years of diving), I finally made the decision to do this, as it was always on my mind to be an instructor one day.
I didn't put too much research into as to where and how with to do the course, but I must say, I couldn't have had a better teacher than Camille !
Honestly, Camille understands how to massage the right amount of knowledge into you in perfect dosages so you don't feel overwhelmed or bored at any time. And after the IDC, I had no doubt in my mind that the IE is not doable. Was a piece of cake with Camille's preparation.
I also came "from the dark side" with my Divemaster/Assistant Instructor level from a different organisation, so I was even a more difficult "patient"; but Camille took special care of me. I was also lucky enough to be his only student for this course; which gives you lots of time to ask questions, but also a little bit less exposure to see and learn from other students. But spending a few days for practice with Richards team, it all worked out perfectly!
Thanks again Camille for this exceptional experience !!!
Thanks a lot for taking the time out to write this Tim, it's much appreciated!
