IDC March 2009
PADI Instructor Development Course and Instructor Examination – Pattaya Thailand
The last month of the quarter of 2009 and another great result from the Mermaids Dive Instructor Development Course. 3 candidates and now 3 new PADI instructors!
Ailsa, Leah and Vikki undertook the Mermaids IDC through the all-inclusive instructor training program. Great results in the IDC allowed for a superb score in the grueling Instructor exams over the last 2 days.
Gaute and William joined PADI Course Directors Desi and Russell in participating in their PADI Staff Instructor ratings. Working alongside all of the guys were PADI Staff Instructors Jon Sussman, an ex OWSI intern (and top bloke) and Henri another swell guy.
It takes a lot of work and dedication to successfully complete all of the training and pass the instructor examinations with confidence. The exams consist of academics, presentations, pool and of course open ocean work. Each part needs to be successfully negotiated to move on to pass overall. A big congratulations to the girls for their excellent pass. “Mermaids Angels” – congratulations to Ailsa, Leah and Vikki. Please do feel free to have a look at the pictures below.
