- Learn to Teach Diving in Chaweng During 1 to 11 July 2011 reports that The Diving Academy on Chaweng Beach in Koh Samui will be offering a series of classes where attendees can learn to become fully qualified instructors.

The classes are for the PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) which is a qualification that's recognised worldwide for people that want to turn their love for diving into a career.

Being conducted by Course Director, Camille Lemmens the lessons will enable participants to be able to transfer skills to enable others to dive safely and to the standards set by PADI.

Lemmens has an impressive set of credentials for teaching about diving and this includes the Platinum Course Director award from PADI which is only handed out to the best instructors. He often achieves 100% pass rates for people that attend his courses as potential instructors will have to sit and pass the PADI Instructor's Exam which then enables them to go on and teach.

The course will provide close mentoring with a strong emphasis on practical learning to master the techniques to be applied in the water. This will occur in the sea and at the Kandaburi Resort and attendees will need to book a Chaweng Beach hotel between 1st and 11th July 2011. The instructor's exam then takes place the following day in Koh Tao and lasts for three days.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at commented: "Chaweng is the most popular area on Samui and in order to find rooms attendees should make sure they leave enough time for when it comes to booking."
