Scott Smith - July 2012 IDC

Very proffessional and well structured course. You could tell all the staff had losts of experience and knew exactly what they were doing. I also had a great time and met a lot of really awesome people. I would recommend Buddha View to everyone looking to do their IDC, but particularly Course Directors Chris Freestone and Marco Gervasi.

Great education level and a lot of fun

I've done both DM and OWSI with Dive-Careers.com, and namely with Buddha View @ Koh Tao. I really love very friendly, family like atmosphere in the team. Those who has done DM with Buddha View were clearly distinct during IDC due to their high level of skills and knowledge. I was able to start teaching OWD, AOWD, EFR and Rescue right away. I think it's the best characteristic of the school. Thanks Mark, thanks Buddha View team!

MSDT

Thanks for asking my feedback.

For getting more experience, Buddha View is a good selection, specially with its friendly staff.

I may recommend that someone should assign MSDT and DM candidates to Instructors. This way you will be sure that candidates can get more experience from different instructors and also will organize the program. I've noticed that in some courses there are so many assistants.

For candidates is also better, because they will know what to do and they do not need to follow/find instructors.

I want to seize the occasion and thank you again for helping me to get more experience.

Best wishes.

Thanks for the feedback Masoud and glad you enjoyed another trip back to Buddha View. Hope to see you back staffing idcs in the future. I think your points are pretty valid. I will pass them onto Chris so that he can keep more of an eye on the assisting. thanks

Koh Tao IDC With Mark and Marco

I have been a diver since 1972 and have dived all over the world. I found Mark and Marco to be honest and efficient. They have a super team of instructors and course directors.

Their IDC center is top shelf but most of all I had fun the whole time I was with them.
