Joel wells: Maui, Hawaii 

Trying to select where or who to go to for the best training for anything is critical. It can be as significant as choosing where to go to college for a degree, and in most cases will follow you the rest of your life.

Living on the mainland, I traveled back and forth to Maui over a few years, and was fortunate to have received some of the most thorough and comprehensive training working my way from DSD through to Divemaster, and was now looking very hard for where to ultimately obtain the best IDC training.

After exploring several options, the name Chris Adams had come up multiple times, so I did a little research and quickly determined Chris’s program is exactly where I needed to be. Undeniably and absolutely world class IDC training from a first class trainer, and without a doubt the correct choice.

The irony of it all was the fact that I would need to travel back to Maui once again, as the journey came to full circle from where it originally began as a DSD, and now attending world class IDC training from one of the most sought after trainers in the industry.

Chris provides the most well-rounded and complete IDC training instilling the confidence and skill to not only prepare you for the Instructor Exam, but also enable you to confidently and successfully begin teaching courses. And there wasn’t a day throughout the IDC that he didn’t have all us of cracking up laughing at something! 

One of the most challenging but fun and rewarding experiences of my life!, I will never forget it. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for IDC/IE training, to go directly to Chris Adams. It like the Yale, Harvard, and Stanford of IDC training, and well worth it!

Thank You!
