I have had the most wonderful Weekend!
I spend most of my life passing on great techniques to PADI IDC Candidates on how to teach an efficient and effective Open Water Course. But I don’t often get the chance to teach Open Water Courses myself.
Over the last weekend, I have had that very chance! Janet and I have been teaching all Class and Confined sections of an Open Water course to Nikki, James, Warren and Maria.
I was delighted to proove to myself that everything that I teach on IDCs is not just theory! The proof is in the pudding they say! All 4 candidates had a lot of fun, and learnt very very quickly. They soon got used to the environment underwater, and by using the methods that we know to work well Janet and I helped them to discover themselves how to master the skills.
We enjoyed 5 hours of pool time over the weekend, the last 30 mins was just “Playtime” for the team, as they practiced the new skills that will change their lives forever.
We are headed for Open Water next weekend, I can’t wait to share the new experience with them. It will be a lot of fun and laughter.
