April IDC at The Dive Academy

So the April IDC at The Dive Academy is now well underway and the first part is complete and Ariel is now an Assistant Instructor! After 2 days of Prep and 4 days of the AI course, Ariel has covered many topics and presentations including DSD and CESA workshops, the business and marketing of diving, risk management and theory and standards exams. Along the way she has been asking lots of great questions of Course Director Paul keeping him on his toes and ensuring she has lots of different explanations to help her become a great PADI Instructor.

Ariel who speaks fluent Mandarin, Japanese and English has been working very hard every day to ensure she is getting good scores in all of her knowledge development, confined and open water presentations.  To quote Ariel "that's what we Chinese do, study hard to pass the exam!!" 

The OWSI part of the IDC commences tomorrow and the IE is on the 21st and 22nd April. We look forward to welcoming Ariel to the club and to working with The Dive Academy through the summer high season. With her languages, she will be a great asset to any dive school as she continues her travels around the world. 

Ariel chose the The Dive Academy for her IDC because of our very small groups and therefore personal attention that you receive. If you're interested in having the ocean as your office, why not join one of the next IDC's at The Dive Academy starting in May or July on Samui and benefit from our special discount promotion.
