Reviews from divers
It is always nice to get information from others before booking a course. How has it been? Was there a positive spirit? Do you also learn something or is it just having fun during the courses? Do you get tips and enough attention? You may have all these questions. That is why you will find the necessary reviews of students and candidates who have followed a course with Course Director Chris. Of course you can contact her students to inquire about a few things. PADI also interviewed Chris for the Tec Rec Blog (Dutch), also worth checking outto read.
Albums from IDC courses
So many photos are taken these days that albums are almost impossible to keep up with. Of course you’ll find from the very beginning that Chris Coruse became Director of the IDC’s albums. Both from the IDCs in Egypt and in the Netherlands.
With so many candidates and students, it’s hard to keep up with everyone who passed Chris’s. Yet we try to name everyone! If your name is not listed, let us know. State your name, the course and the year you passed. Chris is happy to mention you on her website.
News, new course dates, newly certified candidates for Tec and for PADI Pro can be found here. Feel free to browse. If you have any questions about any of the topics, please contact us for more information. Of course you can also report news yourself. Chris would love to hear from you. Because how nice it is to share a passion together.
Calender Go Pro and Go Tec
Do you want to know which courses are already planned and whether there are still places available? Do you want to follow your course in the Netherlands or in Egypt? Chris offers you both options because she can be found regularly in Egypt. Of course the IDC data are fixed per year because the PADI Exam is linked to it. If you have a course in mind that is not yet planned, you can schedule it together with Chris for at least two people. Flexibility is written in bold in Chris’s dictionary. Please note, an appointment is an appointment, planning is planning. Just like with diving itself, plan your dive and dive your plan.
