After completing the Assistant Instructor Course earlier in the month Mel has now taken the big step and become a PADI Instructor by completing the IDC and passing the IE held in Koh Tao which finished yesterday.
Both Mel and Graham (from Planet Scuba) had no problem with the dive theory and PADI Standards exams on tuesday afternoon, and, despite the added stress of having to prepare the classroom and open water presentations in the dark due to power cuts on Koh Tao, they both managed to get good scores and pass the presentations and the skill demonstration.
Without too much stress or difficulty (??) both managed to successfully get through the open water presentations to complete the IE and become PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.
Mel will be working full time for The Dive Academy and is looking forward to teaching her first Divemaster Course beginning next week.
Once again congratulations to both Mel and Graham and good luck for the future.
