Our Instructor Development Course took place last month. It was up to our very good friend and PADI Course Director Anders Holmberg from Fantasea Diving in Sweden to shape our candidates into IDC instructors in an intense, action-packed, but fun week. He had some help from our very own in house Master Instructor Siobhan White. Together they did a superb job!
In this action-packed week our students had pool sessions, classroom sessions and open water dives, during which they learned to teach all aspects of diving courses from Discover Scuba all the way through to Divemaster!
The candidates were absolutely amazing, very skilled and true naturals. We now have the privilege of having them join our DIVE.IS staff team for the summer as instructors & guides and they are a valuable addition to our team.
The IDC was concluded with a special drive trip hosted by our good friends in the North, Erlendur and Sævör. The now graduated instructors were joined by our Managing Director Tobias Klose and PADI’s Reigonal Manager, Kjell Evensen. The group got to dive the famous hydrothermal chimney, Strýtan, the only hydrothermal chimney shallow enough to dive to . We want to give a special thank you to Erlendur and Sævör for hosting us and showing us a great time. And finally a big congratulations to our to our graduated IDC students! 😃
