Our final IDC of the year was recently held 26 Sept-7 Oct IDC. We only had 2 candidates, and they were therefore lucky to have the Course Director all to themselves. Congratulations Arto and Jimmy for successfully finishing your IDC!
Whats great about doing the IDC with us in Bunaken is that the diving is so good, and after the IDC both of them had a well deserved rest and went diving. Arto decided to take it a step further and had a try-dive on a CCR rebreather, another advantage of doing your IDC with a center that is also a PADI TECRec Center!
The PADI IE was held 9-10 Oct, and as there were only 2 candidates PADI agreed to hold it at our resort on Bunaken. Normally the IE is held in nearby Manado so this was a first for us as well as a first for the area. It was also made possible because of our new swimming pool – with 3m depth it is ideal for an IE!
The IE went well and Jimmy and Arto passed with flying colours, and we want to congratulate the two new PADI Instructors!! Here they are being awarded their certificate by the examiner, Richard Evans from PADI.
Thats our IDC 2012 finished, but we will be holding more in 2013. For more details about our IDC’s and the schedule, check out the Instructor Development Program on our website. We hope to see you there!
