I am back from the Dominican Republic after attending the 2012 PADI Course Director Training Course. The CDTC is definitely the most exclusive PADI program to date and is open for a select group of applicants; a few months ago I was encouraged from people at PADI and other instructors in the region to submit my application. I was accepted and attended the course from June 19 to 28.
The 10 day program provides an in depth perspective of the PADI system for Diver Education, the Instructor Development Process, actual trends in the business of Instructor Training in different markets and other important aspects of being at the top of the Scuba Education sector worldwide. It is also a lot of fun.
I would like to thank the people who encouraged and then supported me in taking this step in my career as a dive professional. You know who you are! I would also like to thank my team “The Killer Papayas” for all the fun and rewarding moments we had during the CDTC. Papayas: I know you know the CDTC would have not been as fun and easy as it was without each other.
Now the real challenge starts. The task to role model and develop a complex market with many stake holders and challenges lays ahead. It is my objective to lead with example, be positive and work with ALL the diving professionals in the region to push OUR business forward. This is a honor and a big responsibility for me. I'm looking forward to the future.
