Yes indeed, we're half way in the current PADI IDC on Koh Phanga
n in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Resort 'Haad Yao divers'.
All 5 candidates are working hard but the results are showing that the hard work is paying off with the good results they get.
Allie during air depletion in the skill circuit
As international as always during my IDC's, we welcomed candidates from the USA, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
Tim and Von with an alternate air source use skill in confined water
They're digging into theory exams, classroom presentation aka knowledge development, confined water presentations, skill circuits, open water presentations and classroom presentations by me. A lot of spice with a lot of variation! Every day around noon we have a nice lunch break with some great Thai food as well!

The PADI IE
will be held on Koh Phangan
on 8th and 9th March, so still a few days to go to prepare properly, get some more experience and make a killing during these two days.
We also had the pleasure during this program to welcome the regional manager Tim Hunt
for a short visit to the IDC classroom for a meet and greet.
Myra during one of he Knowledge development presentations in the classroom
There's also a first during this IDC
and well that Myra, one of the candidates is 8 months pregnant and she didn't want to wait for the baby to be born but decided to get all the classroom work out of the way so once the baby is born and she's ready again, she only needs to complete the water work of a future IDC. That's what I call dedication! Well done Myra.
