The Instructor Development Update 2014 in Manila on Saturday 14 June was a great success and we had a record breaking audience of 21 CD’s and 17 IDCS Instructors attending.

Following the success of 2013’s ‘Get Wet’ sessions, PADI is back in the pool as well as the classroom at this year’s Updates to provide tips on how to conduct the new skills from the Revised Open Water Diver Course. The pool session was truly FUN and we had many great discussions during the evaluation session that included a Rescue Workshop as well.
