And so the end of another fantastic #PADI #IDC here in #Tenerife
Our 6 #candidiates have performed incredibly well and with many highs and a couple of lows, they have grown into very accomplished PADI ##Pros
We are proud to have been part of their journey so far and wish them the best of success in the #IE tomorrow and Sunday.
PADI Instructor Development Course Day 8
Some great scores today as we finish the Open Water Teaching segment of the IDC.
The last few presentations now as the last day approaches before one last study day and then the #IE!
Time to turn up the heat and let the new (almost) #PADI #Instructors meet the new main man in town….. !
Our #IDC Candidates had the pleasure of being introduced to the new PADI Territory Director for our region Sascha.
Sascha has just been promoted to the position and we look forward to working with him for many years.
The IDC Team had the opportunity to hear a presentation prepared by our #TD discussing the merits of Continued Education ( #ConEd ) at #Instructor level and about the other aspects of being an Instructor some of them may not have thought of!
Sascha finished off with wishing them the best of success at the forth coming #IE
Thank you for taking time out and chatting to the next Generation of PADI Pros and we will see you soon Mr TD 😎

The first sighting of a new born Common Ray in the bay, with Mum keeping a watchful eye over her baby – even though they are born with full capability to fend for themselves after 9 months developing inside its mother! Abades Bay, a Marine Protected Area, is perfect for these sightings.
Captured by one of the Instructors out teaching skills to the Interns!

Well done to all.
This week is Instructor #SpecialityWeek!

For starters this week we have already had #Deep #Wreck #DSMB #EmergencyO2 #Navigation #Nitrox #SharkAware and #CompressorOperator (a PADI Distinctive Specialty written by our very own Platinum Course Director Kim). Bring on the rest of the week!
Take 10 new #PADI #Instructors , add 2 more Instructors from a previous #IDC , a dash of #night time and you have the makings of an #awesome PADI Night #Diver Instructor #Specialty
After a busy day full of #training and #learning just enough time to squeeze in one more Specialty.
It was great to catch up with Ryan and Maria… and wishing them success on their new #adventure
After the excitement of the #PADI #IE here in #Tenerife it is time for our 10 new PADI #Instructors to make a start on some #Instructor #Specialty training with our resident PADI Platinum Course Director Kim.
