First Student Qualified by New PADI OWSI

Bernard, right, with his first 'real-world' DSD student that he qualified all by himself recently.

Bernard, one of Downbelow’s Pro Interns and recent Nov IDC graduate, has just received his confirmation email from PADI and immediately sprung into action.

He put to good use all that hard work and effort he had put into becoming a PADI Open Water Instructor with Downbelow here in Sabah, Borneo.

Without hesitation and with complete professionalism, Bernard qualified his first PADI Discover Scuba Diving student at Downbelow’s PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre.

Downbelow’s resident PADI Course Director Richard was on the scene to congratulate Bernard on popping his instructor cherry.  “Great job, mate,” said Richard, “nice to see you teaching in the real world after all your hard work.”

Although Bernard conducted the course on his own, Downbelow’s Go Pro team was in the wings for support and quality control.

But, thanks to top quality training Bernard’s received at Downbelow, he effortless notched up his first PADI student. Seems like Bernard is ready to leave the nest.
