Best Decision – Phuket PADI IDC & IE May 2023

I am writing this review with immense gratitude and excitement as I reflect on my unforgettable experience with the May PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) and PADI IE (Instructor Exam) at Aussie Divers Phuket – 5 Star PADI IDC centre. Without a doubt, choosing Aussie Divers Phuket for my professional dive training was the best decision I could have made.

From the very beginning, the team at Aussie Divers Phuket demonstrated a level of professionalism and dedication that immediately put me at ease.

Throughout the PADI IDC, Darren Gaspari (PADI Course Director) and the instructors exhibited a profound passion for diving and teaching, creating an inspiring and dynamic learning environment. Their expertise and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure our success were evident in every lesson. The course material was comprehensive yet presented in an engaging and accessible manner, making even the most complex concepts easy to grasp.

The practical training sessions were where the real magic happened. The hands-on experience allowed me to apply the theoretical knowledge under the guidance of the skilled instructors. The constructive feedback I received during these sessions was instrumental in my growth as a diver and aspiring instructor.

As the PADI IE approached, I felt fully prepared and supported by the Aussie Divers Phuket team. The mock exams and review sessions were invaluable in building my confidence and reinforcing my understanding of the course material. When the IE finally arrived, I felt calm and collected, knowing I had received top-notch training from Aussie Divers Phuket.

I am elated to announce that I successfully passed the PADI IE, and I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Aussie Divers Phuket for making this achievement possible. The level of professionalism, care, and personalized attention I received surpassed all expectations, and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to guide me on this journey.

Beyond the exceptional training, Aussie Divers Phuket also provided a warm and inclusive atmosphere, fostering a sense of camaraderie among fellow students and instructors. This supportive community made the entire experience not only educational but also incredibly enjoyable and fun.

I wholeheartedly recommend Aussie Divers Phuket to anyone seeking to pursue their dreams in the diving industry. Whether you’re looking to become a PADI Instructor or simply enjoy unforgettable dive adventures, Aussie Divers Phuket is the place to be.

Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my dream of becoming a PADI Instructor a reality. I eagerly look forward to returning to Phuket and creating many more incredible memories with Aussie Divers Phuket.

Why control is important when you are a dive professional.

As a PADI professional and particularly as a PADI Instructor we hold a great deal of responsibility each time we take a student into the water, be it the swimming pool or open water.
