On March 21st myself and two other candidates started our Instructor Development Course here in Khao Lak, Thailand. I choose to do my IDC with Dive Careers here at Khao Lak Scuba Adventures because some of my friends recommended me to do the course with Mark. I’m glad I made this choice, Mark is a great guy with an unbelievable knowledge and experience in scuba diving. Mark added a lot of extras in the course and prepared us way beyond what we needed to know for the exams. Plus we got access to loads of materials that he put together over the years which helped me a lot with the preparation. I guess I was also lucky to be in such a small group, just three candidates. Therefore the atmosphere was very relaxed and there was always a lot of time to discuss things. Any questions we had during the course, we could always reach out to him. I had a really good few weeks here in Khao Lak, I’m now working on the liveaboards here for a month (which was also part of the IDC package) and I can finally call myself Open Water Scuba Instructor!
