I was looking for somewhere in Khao Lak to do my IDC and with out any real preference with an uneducated decision and I happened to get the worlds leading course director and boy did it show.
Mark is a platinum course director and had certified more dive instructors than anyone else
Mark had some amazing teaching techniques and always let your strengths shine through and helped you out where it was needed, it was 7 years ago when I completed my dive master so I needed to really sharpen up my theory side of things and from scoring very low on my exam on the first day of the IDC (which Mark gets you to do to show him your current knowledge so he knows what to work with) and then to me scoring a 100% on one exam and 89% on another and high scores in the presentations in the IE 12 days later truely shows that he really knows what his doing and can teach you the way you absorb it most
Our presentations were spot on and we could really tell when we stood up with the other participants that the little extras that mark had shown us really came through and were truely noticeable
His not all business business and there were laughs everyday and his truely a genuinely nice guy that has a passion for what he does and wants to see the best in everyone, to Mark your not just a customer which really made me feel at home and comfortable
I highly recommend Mark to any future DMs looking to becoming an Instructor and thanks again Mark for helping me achieve my dream
