Fun times

Diving on Koh Tao and doing the DMT there was a great idea. Lots of fun and plenty of experience. The time I've spent there gave me the opportunity to get a lot of connections for future jobs around the world.

Fun IDC with great support...

A full on but genuinely enjoyable IDC, great support from Bas and Jason, who tailored their training and approach to individual students and made sure we were all well prepared for the IE. We had the right mix of classroom training, practical sessions, some speciality dives and a great group dynamic. Managing 11 people with different backgrounds and needs cant have been easy but the guys did it well. A million thanks to them and I definitely recommend the experience to others :-)

Entering the IE so well prepared takes some of the scare away

I cannot praise Bas van Riemsdijk's and Jason Orage's work with the group and each person individually highly enough. They were completely personal in their approach, coaching each one of us as we needed it and where we needed it. At the same time, it was coaching - not authoritarian bullying. I am delighted to say that I really enjoyed the IDC. And I certainly had not expected that. Thank you, Bas and Jason, for my new career!

Feedback

Had a good time in general. However, would be better if I had a formally structured orientation for my course that was over a week. Felt a bit lost during first few days.

Going the extra distance!

Wow.. I was thoroughly impressed by Marco and all of the course directors for their patience is appreciated beyond what words could describe. They helped me get to the point of grasping the concept, applying the "rules", and then allowing me to explain it back to them to ensure that i had correctly understood what and why I was (specifically in physics). I had heard that they were great, but I didn't realize the extra effort that they put in in order to ensure I was confident in the subject matter. Thank you all!!!
