Bernard, right, with his first 'real-world' DSD student that he qualified all by himself recently.

One of Downbelow’s Professional Scuba Diving Interns, Bernard Henry, just received his “In Status” confirmation from PADI.

Bernard is one of our recent batch of very successful IDC Candidates, all of whom aces their Instructor Exams.

As a qualified PADI Open Water Scuba Diver who is now officially confirmed, Bernard celebrated by teaching his first “real” PADI Discover Scuba Diving program at Downbelow’s PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre.

After completing his first course, Downbelow’s resident PADI Course Director Richard was there to wish him luck.

“Great job, mate,” said Richard, “nice to see you teaching in the real world after all your hard work.”

Whilst going solo for his first teaching gig, Downbelow’s Go Pro team provided support and close supervision from the sidelines.

Thanks to Downbelow’s top quality training, Bernard’s effort and relentless skills practice, he handled it like the professional scuba instructor that he is.
