From IDC staff candidate through Trip advisor
I have completed my IDC Staff course with Chris Owen, In-depth Dive College in Aug 2013

I was surprised the way he transfers his knowledge to the candidates, Chris teaching method is amazing he knows how to put knowledge in to candidates head really. 100% passing marks in IDC/IE

He is the instructor of all nationalities, languages and dedicated to his profession very kind and humble Course Director I have ever met.Thank you In-depth Dive College and their entire team. Excellent Thai food 🙂 He drove us to show awesomeness of Phuket specially sunset from top of the hill.
Thank You Chris and Taew Owen

Mika Lukkonen
From an IDC Candidate
I did my IDC in April 2010 with Chris and the service I got even before the course (pick up from the bus station, driving me around the facilities, a long discussion over lunch about the course etc.) got me convinced that this is the place where I want to do my Instructor course.Throughout the course, the standards were kept high and things professional. There was only 3 candidates (to one Course Director and one IDC Staff Instructor, not bad eh) so things were constantly kept very personal but surely demanding which I definately appreciated. You are there to learn after all, not to have a holiday. Also the facilities are great. It seemed that everything was thought through from the point of the IDC training, classroom was very comfortable and the swimming pool was the best for teaching scuba diving I’ve seen before and since. Deep enough for proper ascends and descends, big enough for loads of people and we had it just for us! The pool is only couple of minutes walk from the IDC center in a beautiful resort where we also had our lunch (good food!!).

So with all this, I guess it’s needless to say that when the time for IE came, I was ready and confident with anything they might throw my way and I passed, not without stress, but without worrying that I’d miss something on the course. All the bases were covered!

On top of this, Chris has been supporting my dive career ever since, always ready to answer any diving related qustions I might have. Highly recommended!

To make it straightforward, in case you need: – Decent PADI trainings in Phuket – Almost 100% passing rate in IE – A real mentor for PADI teaching/career – Excellent Thai food – Fun! You need Chris and his crew with Indepth Dive College 😉

JR Gerochi
From an IDC Candidate to PADI
I just would like to share my IDC experience with Mr. Chris Owen. I am very thankful, and very grateful to my Course Director. For he has been very professional, strict (when it comes to teaching), but at the same time very patient with me. I know there are times when Chris would get frustrated with me because i simply could not get everything right. But, he extended his time and his patience with me from the day i started until the IDC training ended. I would like to acknowledge my Course Director Chris Owen for he never gave up on students like me. He never stopped pushing me to learn and understand. He may be a perfectionist, so that makes him very strict in class and during training. But, i now understand that he wants us to be the best in our field. That, when we finally become instructors we are prepared with the knowledge that PADI wants to instill in their students. I will be coming back to Phuket this December for my IE and hopefully pass. I have my Course Director to thank for and i will strive to be like him when the time comes.

From an IDC Candidate to PADI

I took part in Chris Owen’s IDC in Chalong, Puket in June this year and his professionalism is outstanding and I learnt so much from him. Chris is indeed a credit to Padi Asia and I inspire to one day be able to teach to his high standards.

I have been back at work for a month after returning from Thailand and whenever I talk to anyone about my trip the same comment keeps coming up, “Your Course Director sounds like a great guy”. I just thought I would tell you as well as I do think Chris has given me a superb role model to aim towards.

Unfortunately my trip was not all positive as I could not sit my IE at the end of my IDC as I had a motor cycle accident only a mater of days before the exams. I was very upset about this but Chris kept me positive and made me feel more than welcome to return in the near future to complete my IE. Chris went out of his way to help me with my injury by taking me to the hospital on several occasions and translating what was going on, including when the doctors over prescribed my medication which lead to a large rash.
Whilst in Thailand my bank cards were also frozen. This could have proved a major problem however Chris stepped in and paid all my hospital bills which considering I had only known him for a matter of weeks I think was very decent of him.

Thanks to the treatment I received my leg had nearly healed and I am itching to get back to sit my IE as soon as work commitments allow. I would have no hesitation recommending Chris to anyone I spoke to.

“One of the best dive shops in Thailand”
I did my divemaster course with Indepth dive college and from day one they were really helpful with information regarding the dive course and other courses available. The staff were helpful, professional and fun. I will definitely be using IDC for my instructors course later in the year

“Advanced Open Water – Professional and fun”
I did my Advanced Open Water with IDC in April 2013. All the staff at IDC have been extremely professional and friendly and gave me the feeling that I was in good hands. My instructor Lolo was not only very professional but also made sure that the course was fun. He took plenty of time to take me through the theory and made sure that I was comfortable with all information before the practical part of the certification.  Overall I was really happy with the great customer service and professionalism and highly recommend IDC and would come back for my next certification.

Started diving 2 years ago and got in touch with Indept. Very quickly noticed that these guys are really pros and they deal with all levels of divers, from rookies up to instructors. Actually they are one of the top diving instructor colleges in Phuket. Even so that they are real expert, felt myself very Welcomed from the beginning. Highly recommended.

5* All round”
I did my IDC/IE in December 2012 with Chris and was delighted with the instruction I recieved. From the moment I arrived I was well looked after and made to feel part of the family. The course is obviously demanding however when the time came for the IE I was more than prepared and so grateful to Chris and his team for their efforts and patience with me. Even after the IE Chris and his team were always happy to offer advice when I began teaching, which is invaluable as a new instructor. Chris is an excellent course director, I highly reccommend and encourage potential candidates to attend an IDC with Chris, you will be delighted with the results. Thank you so much, Chris, Taew, Andy and Lolo xx
