In August 2017, PADI Members gathered in Bangkok to attend the PADI Rescue Diver Workshop. The purpose of the workshop was to refresh and further develop the skills required to teach the Rescue Diver course. It also gave attendees the opportunity to raise any queries they had and speak with PADI Staff directly.
As part of the workshop, PADI representatives gave updates on the revised Rescue Diver course materials, as well as a demonstration of relevant digital products and the online processing system.
This was followed by the group observing and practising skills required when teaching the Rescue Diver course. Attendees also took part in an introduction to freediving under the instruction of PADI Freediver Instructor Ploy Malaiwongs.
Speaking about the event, PADI Territory Director, Tim Hunt, said:
“Thanks to everyone involved in the PADI Rescue Diver workshop in Bangkok. We believe it’s important that PADI Members feel confident in the skills and materials required to deliver courses and this workshop provided us with an opportunity to support this. It was great to see so many enthusiastic members in Bangkok and we look forward to hosting similar workshops in the future.”
