WORLD’s best Dive & IDC center Aussie Divers Phuket

After looking for the right place to do my PADI Instructor Development Course & Instructor Exam’s (PADI IDC/IE) I was referred to the awesome & WORLD’s Best dive IDC Centre, Aussie Divers Phuket, by the PADI Platinum Course Director Christophe Pace.

The boss… MASTER PADI Course-Director Darren Gaspari and his team personally made my stay and the IDC course ended up being very enjoy and unforgettable. The training, practice and theory I received, wasn`t just made or designed to pass the PADI Instructor Exam weekend, it also personally gave me way more than needed and I am thankful for it.

During the whole IDC, the whole Aussie Divers team (Course Director, Staff Instructor’s, MSDT’s and OWSI’s) showed excellent mastery of skill demonstration and knowledge about diving & equipment which exceeded my expectations by far.

All in all I came as a guest and left with new made friends and my PADI Instructor certification in the bag. This Dive Center “Aussie Divers Phuket” and the Team deserves the title PADI 5 Star IDC centre. If I could rate for 10 Stars, definitely I would.

Biggest shout out goes to Darren, couldn’t have asked for more support or help. THANK YOU!

If you looking for the ultimate center and course you definitely in the right place here!

See you soon again for some other IDCs, to finish off my Staff Instructor.

Living The Dream After Instructor Graduation

Finding work after becoming a Scuba Diving Instructor can sometimes be a daunting task, you are competing against people with much more experience who have been working in the industry longer. The best thing about doing your Instructor Course in Phuket is that there is almost always work for new instructors and Aussie Divers will help you to get it. We have awesome and varied post graduation programs, ranging from 'Ride Alongs' with our elite instructors to instructor internships where experience & responsibility can be had in real world environments with real customers, getting you the qualifications & certifications you need to be attractive to employers.

The absolute best way to ensure employability after you graduate to a fully fledged (OWSI) Open Water Scuba Diving Instructor is to continue your training with PADI, especially when it comes to the PADI instructor specialties we teach here at Aussie Divers. Once you have five Instructor specialties under your belt you will become an M.S.D.T or Master Scuba Diver Trainer, which looks much better on your diving resume'. Specialties include being able to teach the PADI Deep Diver (40m), Enriched Air Nitrox, PADI Wreck Diver, Sidemount Diver, Digital Underwater Photographer courses, plus many many more!

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 unbelie [...]

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 [...]
