Who was your favourite instructor and why?

Probably Tina as she gave me some great teaching pointers in my MSDT team teaching

During your scuba diving internship which of the additional Marine Conservation ‘ECO’ program activities did you take part in and which did you enjoy the most?

I’ve taken part in beach and dive site clean ups and cigarette butt challenge. My favourite was dive site clean up, I found it really satisfying to see the amount of rubbish we picked up 

Do you think our additional Marine Conservation ‘ECO’ program was beneficial to your Professional level scuba diving training and if so why?

As a scuba diver, any Eco activity is beneficial to your skill and knowledge set and of value, not only to yourself but to all the students that you teach. With the additional knowledge and experience, you can play a positive role in influencing others to be more respectful of the environment and especially the marine environment. padi instructor thailand
