The crazy bunch of candidates on our Sep 2012 PADI IDC with Downbelow's Richard and James standing tall in the back.

Downbelow’s dive centre is in full swing with the bulk of our September IDC candidates on deck at our Gaya Island PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre.

Resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann and his Go Pro team have started IDC prep with the very eager candidates who will participate in our September PADI Instructor Development Course.

On Monday they started the week with a fun day of Adventure Diving and Search & Recovery skills practice, which took them to the clear waters of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park.

It’s been a fantastic week in Kota Kinabalu, with blue-skied days and sunny conditions almost constantly. How to stay out of the water in weather like this?

Meanwhile, as the bulk of the candidates have arrived, the Instructor Development Course start date has been brought forward by a few days, to start on 31 August.

“It’s not too late though,” said Richard in a post recently, “to join our September IDC if you’re interested.”

The next PADI IDC here in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah takes place from 31 August – 11 September, and is immediately followed by the PADI Instructor Examination on 12 and 13 September.

If you feel 31 August is too soon, then consider the next IDC after that, taking place in November. Also check out our Professional Internships, which will make a full-fledged, experienced diving professional out of you.
