awesome course

i must say that i enjoyed the IDC a lot. Bas was an amazing teacher that was on point, knowledgable, fun. he made the class interesting and easy to learn. couldn't have asked for a better Course Director. the facilities were also amazing and all that staff were fun and helpful. the classrooms were big, the pool was beautiful with a great deep end and shallow part perfect for learning all the skills. all in all i am happy that i did my IDC here. thank you

IDC

It was a superb, knowledge-packed and most of all a relax training. I'd never thought an IDC would be that relaxing. My CD Bas van Riemsdijk did his job very well. He's very friendly, easy to approach and flexible on schedule. Most of all he simplify things for us to apprehend the most. I thank you all for helping me to become an Instructor. You guys are highly recommendable.
