Advanced students in the front, Divemaster candidates in the back, and Downbelow's OWSI Wellson in the middle back.

A quick note that features 5 eager PADI Advanced Open Water course participants we had at our dive centre on Gaya island this weekend past, pictured in the front row in the photo above.

They all completed the course with great success and a big congratulations goes out to them for achieving the next step in their diver education.

At the same time, 2 of our Divemaster candidates, Marissa and Brian, assisted Downbelow’s Instructor Wellson (pictured in the back row) and in so doing completed the Continuing Education Practical Assessment portion of their Divemaster program.

All said, it was an awesome weekend of scuba related leaning at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre; which is par for the course here at Downbelow in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Right, are you next?
