We have just been notified that our application to become a PADI IDC Resort has been approved! This means that we are a facility that can run Instructor Development Courses (IDC’s), the 9-day courses that are necessary for anyone wanting to become a PADI Instructor.
Our aim is to run 2-3 IDC’s a year, and we have already planned our first IDC for September 2007. Both Nigel and Tina will be involved in teaching these IDC’s, and they will be led by our Course Director Brendon Sing. Brendon normally teaches at Lanta Divers in Koh Lanta, Thailand so he has alot of experience with IDC’s. “This is really exciting for us personally” says Nigel, “it moves us up the instructor ladder and we can get more experience with teaching instructors.”
Not resting there, Two Fish has hired a new instructor (start next week) to help with the non-professional courses like the Open Water and Advanced courses. The price of specialty dives is now only US$10/dive so we hope that more customers will take specialty courses and keep the new instructor busy!
