Four times a year we have the opportunity to help a group of people get started with an incredible new career as PADI Dive Instructors, this time around we get to congratulate 5 new colleagues, and welcome them to the club. A huge congratulations on a job well done to Adam Zeller (UK), Geoff Prunet (France), Po-Chi Tsai (Taiwan), Kristi May (UK) and Chris Norris (UK).

The last two weeks have been focused on presentations and exercises that train Dive Pros to use the PADI education system, and teach wide eyed people to dive everyday!

With the assistance of PADI Staff Instructor Shao Hua Chen (Awha), this IDC was presented in English and Chinese, Savedra will now be running separate programs in both Chinese and English, watch this space for schedules.
