What's the most I want to show is my highest appreciation to our CD Natalie and Guillaume, and MI Li Zhou. Without their professionalism and patience we cannot pass the IE such easily and confidently.

Natalie is always full of enthusiasm and patience. It seems like she can never get tired. Actually I know she did after finishing daily teaching in those two weeks. She encouraged me to do IDC and IE in English. And I successfully completed it in three weeks. (Thanks Nat!)  These are relatively small points when set against her expertise on being a course director of PADI. She shared with us lots of professional knowledge of diving and the method of teaching beginners. She even introduced us how to run a dive shop lol.

Guillaume is very kind teacher to us. We had an elder classmate who was a little bit weird. That guy had lots of questions always. G would like to explain everything to him and teach him how to do it more properly. During the IDC and MSDT Guillaume was playing a role of avuncular mentor.

Li Zhou, who was an essential assistant on our IDC and MSDT course is a great laugh maker, friend, scholar and role model. He took great responsibility of translation to IDC candidate who spoke little English. Meanwhile in order to make sure that everyone could understand it, Li Zhou interpreted and explained the knowledge and skills again and again. He provided an extremely lucid expounding. Li Zhou is pretty humorous as well. We all love his jokes every time lol.

All we've learned from Nat, G and Li will be helpful in our future career of diving. I also would like to share diving things with others no matter beginners or senior divers. And now I am so excited about my further diving life.

Thoughts from Our Past Students

  • I did my PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) and Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) at Ban‘s Dive school with Natalie Hunt and Guillaume Fargues on Koh Tao. Their huge Knowledge and Experience in conducting IDC Courses made it easy to learn a lot and enjoy the very practical Lectures and Workshops. We learned a lot about Dive Theory and Practice on a very professional Level with main focus on how to teach and conduct Dive Courses on our own. During our IDC we had a lot of fun and enjoyed Read More
