Well, I have finally made it! IDC has begun. Here is what we have done so far:
Day 1 of IDC:
There is a group of 7 candidates from different places around the world participating in the August IDC. The first day was very exciting and we were all a bit nervous. We had some time to get to know each other and to learn more about what we will be doing for the next 28 days. In the afternoon we jumped in the pool and practiced our skills. I was really happy that I had the chance to perfect my skills during my divemaster program! I can tell that I have a lot of work ahead of me but that I will also be learning tons!
Day 2 of IDC:
Today was another information packed day. We started off our morning with an exam, EEEEKK! After taking the exam I was really happy that I am doing the 28 day program, I still have a lot to learn. Luckily Stefan reviewed all the answers with us and taught us how to do the problems and explained the concepts we didn’t understand. In the afternoon we got some real live instructor training. We jumped in the pool and practiced control and organization during open water confined sessions. It was fun having the chance to practice being an instructor. I can’t wait until I can do this for real!
