PADI Divemaster training is about to commence for our two Staff Mr. Munahir (or Moon as most know him) and Mr. Ipan, and we wish them every success!
They are both ready but also a little nervous as it is going to test some of their weaker areas such as physics, physiology and their general English skills, but we have every confidence that they will succeed.
New Divemasters For Diving Belongas
As some of you may know our fearless dive guide Moon is also our lead dive guide for Belongas, supervisor for all the dive guides, equipment technician and compressor mechanic. Moon always enjoys a challenge making him one of our most ambitious and hardest working employees. He has always said that one of his favourite things about Belongas (after the Hammerheads and Mobula rays) is the challenge of navigating the ever-changing currents of the magnet and the epic topography in the area.
Over the last year Ipan has been gaining training and experience in Belongas so that this year he will not only become a dive master but a dive guide for the Belongas area. He is one of the jokers of our team and its never a boring day with him around, but don’t let him fool you as he has high hopes and ambitions of becoming an instructor and flying even higher.
The boys will have a few challenges on their PADI Divemaster training, most notably that the materials needed do not come in the Indonesian language. However, with lots of lectures and diagrams from Jake our Dive Manager, and translation help from our Indonesian instructor Kus, this should not be a problem for the boys.
Good luck to the boys and keep a look out for the updates on their Dive Master course.
