My IDC. Paul Flower was my teacher and a fine one at that for my IDC. I had been interning for Dressel Divers for almost a year under some of the most professional and well rounded PADI Instructors. Naturally I sought out those with the most experience to gain as much knowledge as I possibly could. Untill the IDC I had only really hear how great, knowledgeable, and awesome Flower was at teaching this course. All that was an understatement. Not only did he prepare us to be ready for the IE, but he prepared us for the real world with personal experiences and the truth. He followed each guidline to the “t” making sure we understood, and he would take time after the scheduled programs for those of us who were struggling in certain areas. I had a couple of moments of uncertainty… Flower was a gift of getting you through when you think it´s over. Paul Flower will always be in my mind as someone who I learned a great deal from (a professor as I like to say) not only for diving but for life.
