The recent Instructor Trainer Workshop (ITW) in South East Asia was held in Bali, Tulamben Ocean Sun Resort. On a clear sunny day, we could see Mount Agung, the highest volcano in Bali on the back and directly across the road from the resort is the Liberty Wreck, accessible simply from shore diving. This wreck is also one of the most dived location in Bali. All the diving logistics was arranged thru Tec Room, a new TDI Instructor Training facility in Bali.
Incidentally, the candidates for this ITW are all TDI Tech Instructors who are very passionate about diving and would not hesitate to do any dives to 100m any day. They are: Will Goodman from Blue Marlin Dive (Gili Trawangan), Dave Polley from Davy Jones Locker (Koh Tao), Ben Walzinger from Tec Room (Bali) and Ramon van Santen. Together, they carried with them years of diving experience and hundreds of hours exploring depths past the recreational limits of sports diving.
Throughout the entire ITW, all candidates displayed a great, open minded, and professional approach towards all the subjects covered during the ITW. They all worked hard and deserved to be an active Instructor Trainer in our Family. We would like to thank them for their great performance throughout this ITW, which was surely demanding, challenging and a great experience for everyone.
On a side note, some of the candidate even did early morning runs towards Mt Agung and a 60m shore dive at the liberty wreck at 6am in the morning. These are some things that doesn’t happen in all the ITW.
All the best to our newly certified Instructor Trainer. You have all earned the highest professional rating with TDI and SDI. We wish you all the best for your future with TDI SDI and beyond.
