Wooo, I’m finally a Divemaster! My last week in Lembongan was very busy, but it was great to see all the signatures being signed off on my form. Day by day getting closer and closer to that final signature!
This is my fourth week as a dive master intern. This week my brother has come over to do his advanced course at Bunaken. I assisted on his course and since it was my last few days at Two Fish Bunaken I wrapped up some of my pending swim tests and the dive mapping activity.
The mini-dive is a new addition to the confined water section of the new PADI Open Water Course skills. This is where student divers plan a simulated dive in a controlled environment with the assistants of their instructor. To make dive planning even easier, students now have the dive planning slate that walks them through all the steps of dive planning.
As September begins, this marks the moment of change for Two Fish Divers with Lembongan being the first off the mark to introduce the New PADI Open Water Course. Bunaken and Lembeh will soon follow, so its time to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new! The 1st of September has been chosen as Two Fish’s change over from the ‘classic’ PADI Open Water Course to the ‘new’ PADI Open Water Course, so let’s have a a look at what has been changed, removed and updated by tackling the updates by sections.
