UWE and Ocean Quest Dive Centre are very excited to announce we have four new PADI Assistant Instructor graduates. Robert, Amy, Bryan and Greg are in the process of completing their Instructor Development Course in preparation for conducting their PADI Instructor Examination.
The course started up last Tuesday where the candates sat in the PADI Instructional Lectures, as well as how to conduct a Confined Open Water presentation, and then proceeded to the Knowledge Review Presentation and the Open Water Teaching Presentation. Everyone has been improving in all the sections as the training has gone on. Saturday and Sunday had us in the water practacing the Confined and Open Water segments to the PADI Assistant Instructor course.
Sunday night everyone commenced writing their General Standards Procedures exam and so far they have all be successful in their training. Next week Greg will be completing the candiates training and IDC. I wish them all the best of luck! Once again congratulations for completing your PADI Assistant Instructor class!
UWE and Ocean Quest Dive Centre are very excited to announce we have two new PADI Dive Masters! Greg V, and Roger L have successfully completed the intense 5 week PADI Dive Masters course which commenced back on the 3rd of Feb 2012.
We certainly put the guys through their paces, from learning how to lead a dive, assist their instructors, Search and Recovery and my favourite the Deep Dive. On top of all that we had two nights a week for theory, and exams, plus Roger had started working on his Assistant Instructors course at the same time so he would be ready this weekend for his OWSI course.
Well done boys you did a great job and you should be very proud of yourselves!!!
UWE and Ocean Quest Dive Centre has started the first PADI Divemaster course of 2012 here at the dive center. We have two students Greg and Roger who have come and joined us for their training, both students have signed up to do their instructor ratings as well, so there certainly is a lot of work ahead of them.
Classes are running at a hectic pace with Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Both students are working hard and doing a fabulous job on their training. With the first exam session quickly approaching, both Greg and Roger have been working hard at learning all the Regulations that apply to the position while learning how to be an assistant in the Open Water training role, and how to become Dive Leaders.
This Saturday past Roger and Greg worked as the Dive Leaders on our Saturday Drop in Dive (SMD). They were tasked to give the dive briefings, as well as lead the dives where they faced various realistic problems with the divers they were responsible to lead. Both DMT’s did a fabulous job, with all be some minor problems that were pointed out and fixed for the next dive.
Well done to you both Roger and Greg, keep up the good work, and I will seeing you in some beautiful tropical location one day soon! Interested in taking the PADI Divemaster Course, or going on the Saturday Morning Drop in dive, contact us at Ocean Quest and let us answer your questions.
