Congratulations to the newly qualified PADI Dive Instructors on Kuredu

24 May 2018

After a challenging, rewarding and enjoyable PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) at Prodivers Kuredu, the candidates took their Instructor Examination and passed with flying colours! Two new PADI Dive Instructors are ready to start teaching and sharing their love of the ocean and one new PADI Staff Instructor is ready to train PADI Assistant Instructors and also assist with IDCs.

We asked them what they enjoyed most during the course and what their plans are now they have their new qualifications:

Najih: The best part of the course was learning lots of new things and meeting wonderful new people. It was a unique and a memorable experience, much better than I expected. Many thanks to Prodivers. Especially Steve for all the organising and of course Miha Frlec, our inspirational mentor. My plan is to get back to work like I was before but with more experience and knowledge. I am ready to apply what I have learned during the last weeks.

Zoë: For me, the best part was working together with new people, being in the water every day, learning how to teach, and have lots of fun at the same time. We were very lucky to have Miha as our Course Director; he is such a patient and supportive teacher. My plan is to continue working for Prodivers in Kuredu, but with a move to the instructor team, I’m ready to share my passion and love for diving with others.

Kevin: The best part of IDC was to meet really awesome people: Miha, Najih, Zoe and all the others in the Kuredu crew! I really hope to meet you all again! IDC is an experience I’ll never ever forget! My plan is now to get back to the Maldives as soon as possible and start to work there. I wanna live that dream and teach people how to dive, show them the awesomeness of the Indian Ocean and how important it is to protect this environment.

The very best recommendations are truly from those who have experienced it – if you would like to follow in their footsteps join us in October for the next PADI Instructor Development Course!

A very big congratulations to Najih, Zoe, and Kevin, from the whole Prodivers team! Thank you for choosing Kuredu Prodivers for this exciting step in your careers.
