Previous Student – Elka Borucka
I came to Buddies as a qualified Divemaster in August 2011, I wanted to learn from the best and become a scuba instructor to share my passion for diving with other people. I spent over 3 months working as a Divemaster, assisting instructors during courses and getting ready for the IDC. Sometimes it was a hard work to get my skills perfect and sometimes it was very easy, the more time I spent practicing the easier the skills become.
After the summer i was ready to start the IDC. The 9 days of the course were a mix of serious studying, preparing presentations and fun in the classroom and in the water. By the time of the exams I wasn’t nervous, I couldn’t wait to show the examiners how good I was! I passed everything with high scores, and I was the happiest new instructor in the whole universe! After I became an open water scuba instructor I left Malta and Buddies and started to work in green and cold waters of Poland and Netherlands.
It was so different than the warm, clear, and blue waters I was used to. It gave me lots of opportunities to see working as an instructor from different angle. I then went to Greece, Thailand and finally I came back to Buddies in 2014 to work as an instructor.
