June Instructor training, 100% and highest scores

Here at Pro Dive Mexico we were the first IDC center in Mexico to conduct the 2010 IDC version.
Again our IDC was held at our super facility IDC Scuba Academy at Playa Maroma.
All the candidates enjoyed the course in the brand new classroom with a view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea.
The 2010 IDC Version of the IDC is a much more complete course, were candidates get much more hands on experience in teaching diving. I felt that from day one of the course, that it was going to be a great IDC, filled with lots of excitement and great personal ambition.
Our candidates came from Canada, Germany, Poland, England, France, Holland and Spain which gave a multicultural mix and good vibe to the 14 days of IDC training.
We all worked intense and did lots of real life training both in the ocean and also in the Cenotes. All the hard work paid off well at the IE.
Most of the candidates continued with us after the IDC with our famous MSDT course that even qualifies them further as dive educators.
This IDC was a very memorable one, and sure that all the new instructors will succeed well in their future dive endeavours.
