Instructor Diaries – Ms. August09 Aug 2012
We would like to introduce Ms. August: Elodie, one of our new arrivals!
Every instructor joining our Prodivers Team first gets an intense training not only about our every day work but also about our dive sites – which takes a bit time with the 50 dive sites! After following some Orientation Dives and Resort Courses, Elodie couldn’t wait to take our divers out independently to show them the beauty of our underwater world.
When it came to the dive site training, Darren went with Elodie as well as Alexis, Yves and Sibylle out on the boats to give them the opportunity to get to know all the important characteristic features, especially our currents which have an annoying habbit of confusing things *cough* Maa Giri *cough*. This important part of the training will help Elodie to guide our divers on the boats in the best way.
Until she is familiar with all of our dive sites, there will always be one of the “senior” instructors with her on the boat to hold her hand…which we are sure most of them will relish. During the first part of July Elodie was out on a 2 Tank to Fushivaru Kandu and Kuredu Express with plenty of sharks, rays and other big fish. During the last week she took our novice divers out to experience the wonders of the Indian Ocean.
Outside of Diving she has also thrown herself into the social side of life, and took it upon herself to entertain the guests and staff on Friday night until the early hours at Kuredu’s White Party, such selfless dedication is always bound to impress the boss’s – who took there duty of care seriously and made sure they were on hand should anything go a miss… although weather they were there to support or merely photograph is still unknown.
