But today it was only the Exams and Classroom presentation, a dry day. The day started at 9.00 with an orientation done by PADI Examiner Rob, following directly with the Exams. There were 5 people doing the exams 3 of Oceans 5 dive resort and 2 of Trawangan dive. After 3 hours the good news was there, all 5 candidates passed the exams. For the candidates of Trawangan Dive the IE was over, this was the only part that they had to do, so they became PADI instructor. But for Marcos, Valentina and Pascal the day continued with a classroom presentation.
