I signed up to do my PADI Staff Instructor course with Two Fish Divers Bunaken who us Dive Careers for their Course Director. It was a group of 5 IDC candidates, myself and 1 other doing her Staff Instructor course, so a nice small personal group. Our Course Director from Dive Careers was Marie. Right from day one, even after a crazy amount of travel, Marie was full of energy and ready to develop the candidates into instructors. The course was lots of fun throughout, while also filling us all with knowledge.
Even the classroom sections were engaging, rather being Marie teaching at us, they were more interactive conversations, where Marie, the Staff Instructors and even the candidates had the chance to explain experiences related to the topic being talked about. Because of this, most of the knowledge and standards were related back to the real world, to help the candidates be even more prepared for teaching after their IDC. Marie also had amazing support from her Dive Career team as we went through the program.
We even all got to dance on the table at the end to celebrate us all passing our courses.
