We have successfully finished our first Instructor Development Course of the year. 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 was joined by our very talented in-house Master Instructor Siobhan White.
Our candidates, had an action-packed week which included pool sessions, classroom sessions and open water dives, during which they learned to teach all aspects of diving courses all the way through to Divemaster!
Our candidates, Andi, Denise, Einar, Fabienne, Mario and Ramiro 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 have they been 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 congratulation to our graduated IDC students!
Our second IDC of the year will be held from the 28th of September – 14th of October. So if you are a Divemaster looking to furthering your dive education you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
