The last 3 weeks of the year are always very busy with both fun divers and students. This year we seem to have many people who like to get certified, so all our instructors are in the pool and on the boat and back in the pool trying to make everyone a certified diver before 2013.
For the certified divers we offered a new challenge: TEC sidemount diver. Classroom, pool and then 2 mornings on the boat with 4 tanks each. This is a whole new ball game for most divers. One of the comments I heard, was : “This makes the IDC look like a piece of cake!” Not that the course is difficult but it is hard work, taking down 4 tanks especially if you are about 1.50m tall 🙂
Well we have 3 new certified TEC sidemount divers and now the path continues to TEC 45.
