(updated) IDC staff instructor

I started diving in 2000 with an intro dive in Greece.
then almost every year again, an intro dive  on vacation but never had the (or want to make) time to get my PADI until 2013.

then I met the owner of dive center Down-under in Landsmeer (the Netherlands).
I’ve been diving at Down-Under since then, and thanks to my instructor Eric i have taken all my PADI certificates up to Divemaster.

Then in 2016 i wanted to become a open water instructor so i went to Chris Azab a course director with over 10.000 dives to learn for instructor. I did the course in the Netherlands in cold and dark water. and i loved it.  we did the IDC and 5 specialities, but it was not enough for me, I wanted more so we went on going and now i can give more then 20 specialities.

the next step was IDC Staff Instructor. this means i (can) assist a course director to teach new instructors.
and i can teach up to assistant instructors.

altitude diver, boat, deep,
