Diving in French Polynesia
PADI Instructor Exam in Tahiti, French Polynesia
PADI Asia Pacific Instructor Examiner, Brigit Jager conducted an Instructor Exam in Tahiti from 1-2 April, 2011.
All 6 candidates who had completed the PADI Instructor Development Course with PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre TOPDIVE-Bathys in Tahiti were successful and are now PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors. They are, Christophe Requillart, Nicolas Bernard, Perrine De Ligondes, Daniel Klinger, Christian Coulombe and Marc Delecluse.
Brigit Jager reports:
“It is great to see an increase in PADI Instructor level training in French Polynesia recently. Of course this wouldn’t be the case without the fantastic efforts done by our Five Star IDC Centres. This time, the IDC and OWSI (instructor crossover) program was conducted at TOPDIVE-Bathys in Tahiti by PADI Course Director, Frédéric Despoix and IDC Staff Instructor François Lejeune. The candidates were well prepared and over the course of their training had formed a close team of great friends.”
