Passion, attention et jovialité

The IDC is finished, my diploma in hand, it is time to say thank you to Dive Careers!!

The course director took great care of us. Attentive, present at every minute, accessible and listening to everybody, This cocktail was the right one: 100% success for the first IDC on mainland India. For them, professionalism and being serious doesn't match with austerity but with cheerfulness. We ended up being in a studious atmosphere but without any complex, where everybody could find what they needed between lessons or extras and the bonus hours spent speaking about coral reef protection or even the Australian Baramundis! I filled up my brain with knowledge in domains that were absolutely unknown to me and Dive-Careers gave me the envy to enrich my own knowledge of marine environments. Speak with them for 5 minutes and you will find yourself with a thirst for knowledge that wont be quenches before long.

A big Thank you to Dive-Careers for making it possible for me to become instructor! And for giving me that little extra that will, I believe, make a difference in my career. And last but not least thanks to Mark for his empathy toward French culture and the help he provided on munching our croissants every morning.

Serious diving education in a fun atmosphere

Since the beginning of my diving education I had opportunity to learn in different centers (Pattaya, Madagascar, Philippines) affiliated to various organization (PADI, CMAS, TDI).

For me, Dive Careers as a very serious diving education but always in a fun atmosphere. I will certainly recommand it.

Fantastic Fun!

I had a great time doing my IDC with Dive-Careers. The course was well laid out and going into the Instructor Exam I felt well prepared.

The Course Directors were amazing and around all the time to help you with anything you needed. As well as learning as much as I did, they also kept it fun and practical.

Good job guys. Thoroughly Recommended!

This Guy Is Brilliant!

I am very impressed with Mark and his approach to the IDC. He is organised, creative and patient. His experience and knowledge are second to none and he explains difficult concepts very well indeed. Taking this course was one of the best decisions I ever made and I would not hesitate to recommend Dive Careers to anyone seeking quality for great value. Do it!
