Blue Planet Divers are a 5-Star Instructor Development Centre based in Koh Lanta, Thailand. We have a large and spacious dive centre and dive boats with experienced staff. We care about creating Instructors who are very employable, fun and knowledgeable. Our multi-lingual staff will assist you through your course and celebrate your success with you. Our IDC classroom is fully air-conditioned and has computer based training aids as well as a Wi-Fi service that is, by the way, available throughout the entire Blue Planet Divers Centre.
We offer more than a simple IDC!
We offer more than an IDC. In order to ensure that you pass your exams successfully, we will prepare your knowledge and experience before starting your IDC. First, 2 weeks before the start of the course you will be able to assist our Divemasters and Instructors during their courses. Secondly, we will give you a few exams to make you untouchable in your IDC theory.
After these 2 weeks, you will get another 2 days of preparation with the Course Director. He will refresh your dive theory and improve your pool and rescue skill demonstrations whilst ensuring you are prepared to go into the IDC with the confidence that your knowledge and skills are at the required level to pass the IE.
Please note that we are providing always more than necessary, because our main concern is our student’s success in any courses.
If you are unlikely not successful during your PADI IE, we will invite you to join our next IDC in Thailand, for free.
Our Dive center has been teaching IDCs since 2009 with our well-known course Director Camille Lemmens. He is one of the most famous and popular CD in Thailand as he covered over 250 classes and certified more than 800 students.
We are extremely lucky to have Camille Lemmens, a Platinum Course Director (CD), on our team, originally from the Netherlands; Camille is in a position to offer courses in English, German and Dutch and is currently improving his French too!
Camille is a highly experienced CD (he has run over 60 IDC’s and taught over 250 Instructor candidates) who has been teaching in Thailand for over 11 years. In 2009, Camille was awarded the PADI Instructor Development Award in recognition of his significant contribution to the growth and development of diving. In the 2010, he was also awarded the title of ‘Platinum Course Director’ for the fourth consecutive year. There are over 1,000 Course Directors worldwide, but only 49 Platinum Course Directors.
Camille focuses on personalized training and generally works in small groups and conducts all parts of the IDC training himself. He ensures he is available at all times throughout the IDC to give his candidates lots of personal and individual attention.
