Introducing… The Magnificent 7

Perth Scuba PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors

Last weekend 5th and 6th of October, whilst most of us were sitting back enjoying the weekend, 7 of Perth Scuba’s elite divers were going through their paces with the final Instructor Examination.  After a full week of learning the PADI way to teach and learning all about this great industry with Perth Scuba Course Director Garth Schumann the crew of 7 were well and truly ready for the final step into becoming “immortal” dive instructors.

The IE went very well with all candidates blitzing the theory exams on the first night after a very calming presentation by PADI Examiner Junya Kato on the running of the IE.

Day 2 had the candidates doing classroom presentations and then a cold water session in the pool doing confined water skill presentations . Once again everyone flew through without a glitch and as the day went on the crew seemed even more relaxed.

Day 3 was the final hoorah and Open Water skills down at the Rockingham Wreck Trail. The sun was shining and it was a great day weatherwise. The water was clear (for the wreck trail) although a little bit wobbly on top.

The crew once again blitzed the field and again proved that they were all guru divers. Rescues were completed after the skills and then a nervous few minutes while Junya went over the individual candidates skills performances.

Then after an excruciating 20 minutes (which seemed like hours to the candidates), Junya began telling the candidates whether they were successful in their quest to become Instructors.

One by one everyone emerged with huge grins on their faces. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!

Out of 9 candidates all 9 passed – 7 of course – our very own crew giving Perth Scuba lots of new Instructors for the upcoming dive season.

Celebratory drinks and lots of partying into the night at the Brooklands Tavern and no doubt a few hangovers. (Thanks Glen!!)

Well done on a great effort to all of our new crew and we look forward to working with you all in the very near future.
