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 9
The final presentations today for our candidates. They have worked hard and are ready for the PADI Instructor Exam this Saturday and Sunday.
Let’s have another look at some of the moments over the past two weeks.
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!
PADI Instructor Development Course Day 7
A great first day of Open Water teaching presentations. Lot’s of learning points but looking really good already!
PADI Instructor Development Course Day 5

The candidates really getting to grips with everything now and looking stronger and stronger! 1 week to go!!! #IE
PADI Instructor Development Course Day 3
Time to get wet! The Candidates on their fist in water presentations in the pool today. A really good session with plenty of learning points but a great standard to start off with.
After a PADI Basic Freediver course they guys strapped on some mono fins and mermaid tails for some underwater fun on the Distinctive PADI Mermaid Diver Specialty.
A popular course here for Freediving enthusiasts and Scuba Divers alike. Written by our very own Platinum Course Director Kim!
Where else can you become a mermaid or merman?!
An amazing morning session on the PADI Basic Freediver course! And to top it off… a PADI Distinctive Mermaid Specialty!
Two new Mermen and a Mermaid!

Read more about her here …
Two great dives had by Kim and Monika in Las Eras and Tabaiba.
Wrecks, Canarian Lobster, Rays and more…

An amazing day celebrating women in diving!
We had a presentation by Jess about why it’s so important, and talked about some influential women (Gemma Smith, Szilvia Gogh, Dottie Frazier, Sylvia Earle and our very own Kim Timmers)…
… then a cracking dive for the women at a local dive site, Las Eras, followed by a Beach Clean Up, and an evening BBQ! #Fantastic
On Women’s Dive Day it’s important to give a nod to those women who make a difference and inspire in the industry.
We would like to give a shout out to our very own Platinum Course Director Kim!
To put that into perspective there are only 11 female PADI Platinum Course Directors in the world! She is also an Elite 300 Instructor and PADI Freediver Instructor and that’s just a little of what she has accomplished.
She not only has helped change the lives of many people through teaching (all of team here included) but her strength and continued motivation help to inspire us all. As a woman she’s a beacon for what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.
Thank you Kim for everything you do. We are lucky to have you.
