Congratulations to Jenn & Zena | PADI Instructors

Posted December 20th in Diving Internships

So the December IDC and IE have finished here on Koh Tao, and we’re pleased to announce two new instructors!

Massive congratulations to Zena and Jenn who both sailed through the instructor examination and qualify as PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors (OWSI) and Emergency First Response Instructors (EFRi). The instructor training is a steep learning curve and a real step up from PADI Divemaster. Both Zena and Jenn did a great job, and with hope both will stick around a continue to be valued members of the Simple Life Divers crew.
