A fantastic team for a PADI IDC

I did my PADI Divemaster course with Ashley Walker in Queensland in 2013. Ash mentioned he was having a great time working in Thailand with Aussie Divers.

Ash convinced me to head to Phuket and to do my PADI Instructor Development Course with Aussie Divers Phuket.

Darren and the team really made the course a couple of weeks to remember.

Ash recommended that I do PADI IDC online and I am glad that I did. It freed me up to work on other parts of the course and even let me have a days break in the second week which I really needed.

The support I got through the IDC not only from Darren and Ash but from the whole team was unbelievable. From the moment I arrived in Phuket the whole team from the cleaner (Joy) to Darren the Course Director made me feel like I was a part of their team and not just a customer.

Many thanks to Hua and Nan (office staff), Big (Divemaster), Mike, Nina, Emily, Martin and Andre as well as the staff at Happy Days for a fantastic two weeks.

I highly recommend doing you PADI IDC with Aussie Divers Phuket.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to be a Scuba Diving Instructor?

The short answer is YES, yes you do. This is simply because as a PADI scuba diving instructor you are an ambassador for the oceans and scuba diving as a sport, which also means promoting safety and comfort in the water for your customers and students when you are teaching. Without quality swimming skills and your own personal in-water comfort being of an extremely high level, you will simply never be a ' great scuba diving instructor' if the medium in which you teach is always frightening to you because you know you can't swim effectively without a flotation device that will shine through in your teaching. When an instructor is 10 [...]

How to do a PADI IDC Rescue #7 – Unconscious Diver at the Surface

PADI place a lot of emphasis on the skill Unconscious Diver at the Surface or what is commonly known as Rescue #7. It is a skill that you had to do in your PADI Rescue Course, your PADI Divemaster Course, at you Instructor Examination and if you go on to be a PADI Course Director you will have to do it at your CDTC. There can be slight variations on how the skill is performed. In real life, adjustments could have to be made depending on weather and wave height. There could be adjustments made because of the size/weight of the victim and the rescuer, particularly if you have a small rescuer and large victim. However, there are four [...]

Andrew Dahl

After a non-teaching gap of 20 years, I decided to re-certify as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor making me a bit of an unusual PADI IDC student. Having already been an instructor working professionally in the industry many many years ago, I knew that my relationship with my PADI Course Director was vitally important. Given that I have reached the grumpy old man stage of life, I also knew that I needed someone with not just significant dive industry experience but also some life experience. So I booked my Instructor Exams directly with PADI, then came to Phuket to look for the right man and the right PADI 5 star IDC Centre for the j [...]
