Great IDC, prepared me to be an instructor way more than expected.

Marie from Dive careers was an excellent CD. She prepared me well for the exam and instilled confidence in me and my abilities. I would really recommend her course!

Adventurous experience

IDC with Marie in Two Fish in Amed was just amazing experience. The ”volcano team” get really close with each other and Marie + the whole Two Fish team made an excellent job to run the course regardless of the situation that we were sitting next to the volcano to erupt. Marie pushed us hard but after all that the IE was just easy.

A no brainer!

I recently completed my IDC with Marie at Poseidon Diving Station in Hikkaduwa and all I have to say is do it! I am someone who needs structure and order and day 1 was an excellent orientation on how the following 2 weeks would evolve. That order and structure was kept throughout the course with adjustments where necessary due to weather conditions. The content of the course and requirements evolve in a very natural way when it comes to difficulty. Marie's way of teaching is fun and efficient (and this comes from someone who hates physics and numbers!). The amount of course material provided is a huge tool to study before, during and after the IDC. It was the start of the season for Poseidon Diving Center but their team were their usual helpful from day 1. I have nothing else to say except that I would do it all over again with Dive-Careers.com.

Very efficiently conducted IDC

In the relatively short duration of IDC we could achieve the maximum readiness for the IE thanks for the well thought teaching strategy which could provide pertinent information in order to fulfill the IE requirements.

Truly amazing

Our Course director Mark has gone an extra mile transforming me from scratch to a professional dive instructor.
His kindness and the positive reinforcements after each task builds our strength and confidence. He truly changed the fear into courage and timidity transformed into confidence.
I still remember the first attempt of confined water presentation which was a complete mess and how i nailed the presentation right after the his encouraging words was one of the highlights of the memorable IDC.
It was simply amazing to have Mark as your mentor.Thank you Mark and thank you Dive Careers.

Screw the real world

Best choice I've made in a long time, joining Mark Soworka in koh tao and becoming a dive instructor! Despite the Irish-Australian language barrier, I was able to understand a bit of what the Aussie guy was saying!!! Great IDC, great course director. Beg borrow and steal (off Mark Soworka) to get yourself on an IDC with dive careers, definetly something you won't regret!

IDC feedback

I thought the IDC was well organised and prepared us very well for the IE. Marie was an excellent teacher and I felt confident going into the exam because of her tuition. I think the course was quite expensive compared to other courses, and it was slightly annoying that the specialty MSDT prep was shoehorned into the 12 days of the IDC, when it was meant to be a separate 2 days after the IE. I would've preferred to have spent the time doing more preparation for the IE. However this is more of a timetabling issue rather than anything else - I thought Marie was really good and the materials she gave us were excellent. Overall I would recommend it to a friend :)
