First Successful Russian Instructor Development Course in Pattaya.Igor and Vadim from Saint Petersburg, Russia signed up for the October IDC with me and our shop Adventure Divers, the 5 Star IDC Center.
The beginning was a bit difficult, but with every day it became easier. First we had to modify the entire schedule, when Igor showed up with cast on his leg. Secondarily I learned many words and phrases from both candidates during the teaching.
Igor and Vadim progressed very fast and got the good understanding of PADI teaching system. Their presentations were continuously improving.
Both of them are now Emergency First Response Instructors (EFRI) and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors (OWSI). To extend their teaching possibilities and abilities, they signed up for Specialty Instructor training too. In total we managed thirteen ratings between them two. This will help them to reach their next goal which is Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT).
Congratulation for Igor and Vadim and all the best of success to their future teaching.
