Start of a new career

I had a blast during our IDC with Mark & Jonas. These guys are so professional and possess so much knowledge. We were all very lucky to attend this IDC reunion of two of the best CD in the world.



Mark and Jonas thanks a million!!

The BEST IDC in the world

I completed my IDC in 2011 with Mark at Buddha View, it was without doubt the best choice I made. I had an amazing 6 weeks learning so much from all the instructors their and doing as much diving as I wanted! I feel it has really set me up for a future career in diving.



Since returning to the UK I have applied what I learnt with Mark through my instructor work. I have already sent one person over to complete their IDC with mark and am pursuading another now. If anyone asks me where to do their IDC mark is my first auggestion.



Thank you for a wonderful experience, I will be back shortly!

Thanks Ash for the great review. Will be good to catch up again in June and am sure the gf will have a great time on the IDC. Note about the language, I slowed the Australian down so you English could understand. And the post IDC stuff I agree. I have actually been off in Dahab doing some sidemount and gas blender training so we will have a sidemount intro on the idc. Also have been tossing up with Aidy to do soemthing with the vdo with the idc candidates as well. The skin diver workshop we do on the dm course. We get one of the free diving insutructors to take them out for the afternoon. See you soon

Pros and cons

Definite pro on the structure of the webside. Nice overview!

Teaching methods and style are also quite good but please don't cut short on your execution. Sometime something was taught in the classroom but neglected in the water.

All in all more positive than negative though!

Most definitely taken on board. Time in the water is incredibly important to help with your control and awareness. Extra sessions are in the schedule to allow that.

Mark Soworka is an amazing CD super professional and very entertaining at the same time. Also if there is someone who knows how to sell very effectively but still in an ethical way, thats Mark Soworka.

The facilities in Buddha View are amazing, live up to any expectation of a pro scuba academy.

Thank you for the great job Mark!

idc with Dive-Careers.com

In plain words I see doing my IDC with Dive-Careers was the best decision I could have made when entering the professional world of scuba diving. Scice completing my IDC (which I could not have asked more from) I have not spent a day out of work. Things have gone from strength to strength while I have had continuing support from them as well as professional an positive references. In short all I have to say about this company is positive and supportive. Why would you go elsewhere is my only question. I've worked all over south east Asia in all the positions I have applied for.
