The very last PADI IE programs of this years in the Asia Pacific region where conducted simultaneously in Khao Lak with my candidates and in Pattaya and the next year’s very first PADI IE in the Asia Pacific region will again see my candidates.
First tings first though and that was the last PADI IE of the year for me and Dan, the examiner. The two candidates did well with Lars having to look at the Standards again.

Well done Sayhau and Lars and good luck! Sayhau will be fine since he speaks Mandarin and should get plenty of good job offers and Lars already works at Seadragon and he’s off to the Similan islands on a live aboard come Tuesday!
A long year of PADI IDC’s and IE’s has come to an end but not all teaching is over yet. An EFR course in a Samui hotel is still in the cards and a Recreational side mount diver and instructor course may be conducted before the year is over around Samui waters!
The first IDC next year will be on Koh Lanta in Thailand, starting 5th January followed by 27th January on Malapascua in the Philippines and 17th February on Gili Air in Indonesia. A nice international start to the new year! See you there!
