The pool has three depths; the shallowest end by the water fall is 1.2m, moving into deeper water towards the "drop off" is 1.6. Next to this is a vertical wall of 3m which is absolutely perfect for training students realistically in skills like ascents and descents, equalizing, neutral buoyancy exercises like hovering etc which is simply impossible in the shallow 2m pools or less normally found in Phuket and Thailand.
For IDC candidates this is not only a perfect pool for PADI Open Water Course training but it also allows realistic practice of Rescue Diver exercises like underwater approaches, and also assignments like rigging lift bags from the Search and Recovery Course all of which are Open Water skills which you can expect at the IE.
Tucked away in the corners of the dive resort you will find four purpose built air-conditioned classrooms complete with all the latest PADI materials and instructional media. There are two IDC dedicated classrooms: these are in fulltime use throughout the year with one dedicated to English Instructor training and one German.
The IDC classrooms are complete with LCD projector, computer, projector screen, white board, video, TV, and offer full multimedia support. Our PADI libraries complete with all the latest PADI, DAN and DSAT digital products are also located here and all candidates are very much encouraged to make the most of these.
Tanks, compressor and EANx blending station are located in another Sea Bees facility 5 minutes away which ensures the peace and quiet you want for your training with no compressor “running in the background … and don’t worry … you won’t have to carry your tanks back and forth as they are delivered and collected daily. These sites are ideal for IDC training and are also used for a variety of local Specialty Instructor Training programs after the IDC.
