Goodbye to Sari and Roy, AMD-B’s 2016 ‘PADI Divemaster Interns’

The end of November saw AMD-B saying “Sampai jumpa lagi” (“until we/I see you again”) to Sari and Roy – it’s been fun having them around and I am very confident they will continue to grow-and-develop.

Sari is spending 1-2mths with her family in Jakarta, and plans to then join a Marine Conservation Programme.

Roy has also returned home to see his family (SE Sulawesi) but is very keen to find a job as a Dive Guide elsewhere in Indonesia.

So: If anyone reading this has any suggestions for them CONTACT US.

Every 3mths, we donate AUD500

This is to specific projects at Project AWARE.

This quarter: Protection for Sharks & Rays – we encourage you to also donate.

AquaMarine Diving -Bali's Newest PADI Divemaster!

We are delighted to have her on-board.  Jane will be representing AMD-B at ADEX Singapore (Booth P21) 7-9 April and MIDE Kuala Lumpar(Booth 718) 12-14 May so come along and say HI!

Introducing AquaMarine Diving – Bali’s
2017 PADI Open Water Diver to Divemaster Interns

AquaMarine Diving - Bali's 2017 Interns in our PADI Divemaster Internship Programme for Indonesian Citizens

AquaMarine Diving - Bali's 2017 Interns in our PADI Divemaster Internship Programme for Indonesian Citizens

Lynda & Herdi our Interns

Each year, AquaMarine runs an 11 month PADI Divemaster Internship Programme for Indonesian Citizens.

This year we have two participants: Lynda and Herdi.

Lynda (25yo) comes from Tanah Toraja in South Sulawesi (Google it, its very interesting!). She is a Civil Engineer.

Herdi (23yo), from Jakarta, recently graduated from the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Science.

Everyone at AMD-B are delighted to have two such outgoing people on board. They have already impressed us with their positive attitudes and adaptability.

In January, they both passed their PADI OW certifications with great ease and enthusiasm.

In February, they took the Advanced OW Diver course which only requires 3 Elective Dives. However Lynda and Herdi took all the Electives that AMD-B offers. Wreck, Boat, Night, Drift, Nitrox etc and EFR (Emergency First Response). A first aid certification is a prerequisite to take the PADI Rescue Diver Course. EFR teaches you how to deal with everyday, minor injuries as well as how to assess and handle possibly life threatening situations.

March was the PADI Rescue Course, lots of bumps and bruises, but their confidence levels and dive skills increased greatly.

This quarter, April to June, they’re taking the PADI Divemaster course!

Both Lynda and Herdi have been assigned an AquaMarine PADI Instructor (Syainal and Aan, respectively) as a 1-on-1 mentor who also participates in training them from Open Water Diver all the way to Divemaster.
