Well after 2 years at the Certification level of Divemaster it was time to progress. I took the PADI Instructor Developement Course with a great course director Patrick Hammer. It was a exhuasting week of training which had it’s high and low points but in the end I was able to pull it all together and passed the PADI Instructor Exam given in Mesa & Lake Pleasant here in Arizona. We had a great group of candidates all of which completed even in the low vis and 61F conditions we found ourselves.

I’d like to thank my now fellow Instructor and training partner Brooke and my rescue scenario victim now instructor Kevin for all their help. also congrats to our other former candidates turned instructors best regards and I wish you all much success.

Gee Greg,

I thought I was in those ranks when I made DM.

Teaching status is another level that I’m glad I’ve accomplished.
