PADI Instructor! OWSI-260021

after 10 grueling days of classroom, pool, and open-water training, i finally finished my PADI instructor development course (IDC) with Sea Fun Divers in Phuket, Thailand! my terrific course director from norway, Bent Posejpal ( saw me through the intense course, culminating in a 3-day Instructor Exam (IE) administered by official PADI asia-pacific instructor examiners who flew up from Australia to conduct our final examination. after passing the written exam on day 1, confined (pool teaching exam), classroom presentation on day 2, and a final-open water (beach) examination on day 3 in the pouring rain, i successfully passed the IE and am now an official PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. that’s my PADI Pro number above – my identity has been stripped and i am now merely a number – but proud of it! congratulations to all the other candidates who passed the IE along with me on 18 October 2009 in Phuket! see you in the water someday.  thank goodness it’s over.  now, if only i had some students!!! the fun begins. dive safe!
