Time has come for me to move to Bunaken (North Sulawesi), which is the next location of my Divemaster internship. I actually chose to do my Divemaster internship with TwoFish Divers because of the fact that it can be done in several fantastic locations in Indonesia. Another clear benefit of this multi location approach is that it also allows the trainee to interact with, and profit from the experience of, a larger pool of instructors, as well as to experience the day-to-day activities of dive centres with different characteristics. Therefore, after my first two weeks in Lombok, I will continue now my training in Bunaken. My third, and last, training location will be Lembeh!
I feel that my two weeks in Lombok have been very productive and rewarding. During my stay there I reviewed the knowledge development/theory stuff with Instructor Kate and passed the final exam. I also took the Emergency First Response course with instructor Steve, who not only taught its content very clearly and effectively, but also made the course very enjoyable. Practice did not come short either. In the many dives I did I practiced dive briefings, skill development, Skin Diver Course and snorkelling supervision, mapping of a dive site and much more. I would like to thank instructors Kate and Steve for their dedication and patience! I am looking forward now to my stay in Bunaken!
