I enjoyed the dive site we went to, Palau Hantu. An interesting site.
I enjoyed the assessments learning process the most, we never learn these safe practices and procedures in our daily operations
The assessments were very useful for SSDE divers. Good hands-on setting up equipment, pre dive checks and in water exercises
I learnt a lot about what to do in an emergency situation, we never practice these procedures in our daily operations. I now feel I can manage a diving emergency as a standby diver with confidence
Very good Assessment team, knowledgeable instruction staff. The trainers were always clear of the course objectives and happy to answer any questions
