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.
