We were joined by 2 new PADI Instructor Development Course candidates this weekend. We say hello to Meredith and Jess joining us to become professional scuba divers.
Our resident PADI Course Director, Richard Swann, was on hand to welcome the pair to our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya island in Kota Kinabalu, and to get them started on their Pro Scuba Diver journey.
Starting off with the Scuba Review program, the duo got underway with the PADI Divemaster course, so as to get up to speed and on a level with the rest of the IDC candidates prior to the start of the Instructor Development Course.
Also included in the fun-filled weekend was a stamina test, because not just any couch-potato can become a professional scuba diver.
The next PADI IDC here in Kota Kinabalu starts on 31 August, which is roughly 2 weeks away, giving our candidates enough time to get acclimatized to Sabah’s beautiful surroundings and piping hot weather.
