March PADI IDC (Instructor Course) underway on Koh Tao

Posted March 5th in Diving Internships

No rest for PADI Course Director Julian as the March IDC (PADI Instructor Development Course) is underway on Koh Tao.

This time round Anka, Tom and Alex will be training through to PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) and Emergency First Response Instructor (EFRi).

We started out with the gang’s first attempt at confined water teaching. The candidates must introduce a new scuba skill to student divers, identifying and rectifying any learning difficulties they encounter. Helping out were Divemaster internship candidates Oscar and Vytas.

You too can become a PADI Instructor in Koh Tao: Scuba diving internships in Koh Tao, Thailand.
