Kate .. She was my mentor.. And she helped me every time when I faced difficulties…and she always spare some time minimum twice in a week to talk to me regarding my DMT progress, sharing her experience in diving etc…
And of course Beard and Andrea, course coordinators… they took the Divemaster training to another level…they upgrade the standards of training by their own way..
