Success for nine brand new instructors at Emperor Dives in Sharm

| No TrackBacks
Apart from celebrating the New Year in Sharm, celebrations were also underway for nine newly fledged instructors. This was the biggest Instructor Development Course for years and everyone passed with flying colours.
Course Director, Steve Prior, said, "Emperor Sharm has always been a fantastic location for Instructor Development Courses. However, the move to the Bay View hotel makes IDC's even better. The large air-conditioned classroom is right next to the heated pool. The pool itself was designed specially for Scuba Instruction and is exactly the same design as the one used for the Instructor Exams. With the Red Sea on the doorstep, why would anyone want to go elsewhere to learn to become an Instructor?"

With such a fantastic result, it's not surprising to hear what some of the candidates had to say:

"A huge BIG thank you to you both (Steve and Janet) for getting me through. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish!" Lynne

"I especially liked a lot of the psychology that was discussed and observing how you used it during our time with you. The group was fantastic and it helped that we all got on so well." Iain

"What made the course successful was the perfect learning environment that you created. Very early on we were all laughing, joking, teasing each other and generally feeling very relaxed. I know that I learn best when I'm relaxed and having fun." Dawn

"I'm happy that I've done this course with you. It opened new ways for teaching people and I now have new views on diving in general, teaching and my career. You are the best!" Elena
