It’s showtime again and my 3rd PADI IDC of this year has kicked off. I’m back on Gili Air in Indonesia, where I also conducted the previous IDC this year, which was rudely interrupted by me becoming ill and Sander, fellow PADI Course Director and owner of PADI 5* IDC Center ‘Oceans 5’ on Gili Air, had to take over for a few days. ‘Oceans 5’ is the only dive center on the Gili islands where two PADI Course Directors are active!

As part of my recovery process, I had to cancel the Khao Lak IDC scheduled in February, but now I’m all good to go again and ready for action and am looking forward to the remainder of this IDC. It seems like a nice group and we’re teaching this IDC in a brand new, air conditioned and dedicated IDC classroom! Let the games begin.

Tomorrow Allen will arrive who will staff this IDC and in a few days Arash from the January IDC will join us again
It’s an international IDC, as is almost no exception with my programs, with candidates originating from Switzerland, the Netherlands, Australia, Greece, Iran and staff from the USA.
Come and participate in one of my IDC’s and find out what these abbreviations mean!
Stay tuned for more updates on this current PADI IDC and if you have the urge to become an instructor and live your dream, my next IDC is scheduled to start 13th March on Phuket in Thailand, followed by an IDC which is scheduled to start 8th April on Koh Phangan in Thailand, followed by another IDC on Gili Air in Indonesia, which is scheduled to start 3rd May and this is followed by my first IDC scheduled in Moalboal in the Philippines which is scheduled to start 26th May.
See you there,
