Aussie Chris Kroll of Melbourne has joined us here at Simple Life Divers Koh Tao to take the PADI Divemaster Internship.
Chris arrived as an advanced diver, so we’ve been putting him through his paces on the PADI EFR (emergency first response) and rescue diver course, prior to getting stuck into the Koh Tao Divemaster course.
Today was the EFR practical session. After giving a bit of mouth to mouth to Annie the mannequin, and a few chest compressions, Chris showed mastery, but realized it was too late for Annie! Next we’ll be out in the water learning how to deal with diving problems, like stress and panic, bad buoyancy, overexertion, running searches for missing divers and overall diving emergency management.
Following those three days of PADI rescue diver training, Chris will enter the PADI Divemaster internship, assisting Simple Life’s team of dive instructors when we’re running PADI courses and Koh Tao dive tours. If you’re coming to Simple Life Diving Koh Tao to take a PADI course over the next month or so, most likely Chris and the other Divemaster trainees will be assisting on your dive course, racking up hundreds of dives along the way.
