What Our Students Say

The best decision I’ve made in 2012 was to enroll in the July IDC with SF Chong. SF Chong is the best course director I’ve ever met, even before IDC start. He was the one who encouraged me to continue my education. I have a million thanks for his patience and encouragement in helping and guiding me throughout the course. I’ve gained knowledge, skills and understanding the standards during IDC with him. I will surely continue my education with him. Huge thanks to my mentor SF Chong for my success!

“We graduated a week ago (November 2011) in Bali and are about to get a job now but before we start teach we would like to thank our great staff. Our Course Director SF Chong has been very efficient and professional during the whole IDC and IE and even now he is helping us to find a job. We really understood what a “Mentor” is and couldn’t expect more from him”

“I absolutely have no words to express how grateful I am, but I’ll try. The way he teaches, the way he conducts the course, the way he treats each candidate as an individual and makes all, not only candidates, but a big team. This man knows all about the standards and shows how easy it is to follow them. He makes everything simple. I can tell that I learned much more than I expected in the IDC. SF Chong is not only my Course Director, he’s my PADI Idol! He is one of the guys responsible for my love and respect for PADI and diving. He made me a great professional and I want to be to others, what he is to me”.
