IDC Indonesia Lombok is over!

IDC Indonesia Gili Islands is over! It is over! The candidates finished their IDC with IDC dive resort Oceans 5 dive Gili Air. The last day was only Open Water Presentations. There was 1 Open Water Presentation in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. [caption id="attachment_1745" align="aligncenter" width="817"]IDC Gili Islands IDC Gili Islands[/caption] How does an Open Water Open Presentation works: Students perform each skill on the Dive Instructors signal. * Students are expected to self correct (as long as safety isn't compromised). * The Dive Instructor is not reteaching skills - just apply reminders of critical attributes to their students. * The Dive Instructors inform the students of the difference if performing skill in open water as opposed to confined water. Control is very important as open water environment is less predictable than confined. The Dive Instructor can practice more than one skill at once whereas in confined the Dive Instructor only practice one skill at a time. After the PADI Instructor Examination (IE), there will be an EFRI course and 7 Instructor Specialty Courses.

IDC Lombok Earprobleam

Ear problems are the kind of problems you better can't get during the PADI IDC. This time it was one of the IDC candidates that had some ear problems but PADI Course Director Sander Buis. [caption id="attachment_927" align="alignnone" width="300"]PADI Course Director helps IDC candidate to find the PADI performance requirements PADI Course Director helps IDC candidate[/caption] Sander went to the clinic on Gili Air after he had some problems with his ears, there the doctor advised him to stay out of the water for at least 1 day. It is not the news you are waiting for if you have to teach an IDC and when you like to spend every day a part of the day in the water to break the days. Well there is nothing what he could do about it, so Sander had to reschedule his IDC and instead of some Open Water Presentations, the candidates were doing classroom presentations and had to listen to Allen and Sander when they did some presentations. The IDC is still on schedule, The candidates, Lewis and Margot, are doing fine. Tomorrow they have there last classroom presentation, have to listen to the last presentations of Sander and Allen, and in the afternoon when everything is ok, they will be in the pool for their Confined Open Water Presentations 4 and 5. Because the group size of this IDC is not that big, Oceans 5 and PADI Course Director Sander decided to schedule more Confined Sessions in this IDC, the IDC candidates will see more problems, are getting more familiar with the PADI teaching system and will see more than a few skills. It will give the IDC candidates more confidents for the upcoming PADI Instructor Examination, and make them more an all-round PADI instructor. Well we see what the day will bring, if the ears of Sander let him into the water.....

[caption id="attachment_920" align="alignnone" width="225"]IDC Lombok with IDC dive resort Oceans 5 dive Gili Air Indonesia IDC Lombok with IDC dive resort Oceans 5 dive Gili Air Indonesia[/caption] During the beginning of the afternoon, PADI Course Director Sander Buis took the candidates to the on land training site. This training site is developed to explain how the control works of an Instructor underwater. Control in Open water is totally different comparing the control in confined open water. The circumstances of open water dive sites are less predictable. It helps the candidates to understand how to position their students during open water training, how to talk with their divemaster, and clearly to communicate with their student. In the afternoon their were some presentations of PADI Course Director Sander Buis. At 16.30 the day was over, the homework was to prepare their 3th classroom presentation, a presentation about the PADI divemaster course.
