IDC Day 6: orientation, theory exams, pool sessions
Today we officially started the IDC! We started the day with Jonathan Cross giving us an orientation about the components of the IDC and the IE (Instructor Examination). It was good to take time to really understand what would be required of us during the IE. I am also totally confidant that we will be prepared after completing the IDC here at Blue Season Bali. We also took some more theory exams for practice. I passed every section this time! Now I know which areas I am weakest in and can take time to study more about them.
IDC Day 7: CESA/descents/ascents workshop, knowledge development prep
Today we go to go out in the ocean, yay! We spent some time practicing the CESA skill in open water. It is proabley one of the most difficult skills to control and asses properly out in the ocean. It was really nice to be able to practice and get feedback from our instructor.
IDC Day 8: knowledge development presentations, confined water presentation prep, rescue workshop
Today we did our first knowledge development presentations in class. I felt really comfortable and it was nice to be up teaching again! We also prepared for our confined water presentations that we will do tomorrow. I have to demonstrate regulator clearing. I have everything all set but I’m still a little nervous about tomorrow. I hope it goes well! I will let you all know what happens. Talk to you soon
