It’s the eve of this year’s final IDC course over at Blue Season Bali. Since my arrival, I have seen two separate groups of people go through the nearly month long course who all came out proud to say, they were now PADI Instructors. Of course each individual told different stories both throughout and afterwards of the struggles and obstacles they faced, but in the end, one story they all shared was their self-satisfaction and relief when it was all over. They all say that the amount of hard work and sacrifice was a small price to pay for not only the sense of achievement they recieved but also the gateway and opportunities that were now open to them in the diving world. Some individuals decided to carry on to take the MSDT over at Blue Season Bali and get the chance to teach courses and gain experience, while others depart shortly after, off to seek out a new adventure in a new destination. Whatever the plan may be, successfully completing the IDC no doubt opens a world of endless possibility.
For myself, after IDC, I will be continuing my diving education with the MSDT (Master Scuba Diver Trainer) which will help build up my instructor rating and also give me the opportunity to get certifications and experience. Not only will this help for job possibilities in the future but it will also let me put many of the things I just learnt into practice. With the help of the team over at Blue Season Bali there will be no shortage of knowledge and guidance which will undoubtedly help me achieve greatness as a PADI Instructor.
As for right now, I’m not sure the exact structure of the IDC course but I do know it will be jam packed full of lectures, skill circuits, presentations and mock courses/exams. The IDC team over at BSB so far this year has a perfect record for students passing the IDC so let’s hope we can finish off with a BANG! Stay tuned for progress updates throughout and hopefully in one month’s time Kenzo Kiren, Best Dive Job Winner will be a PADI Instructor!!!
