Andy was the Course Director that instructed me from Divemaster through to IDC. I found he has a wealth of knowledge within the diving industry, and was very patient, understanding and incredibly supportive in getting me to reach my goal, whilst somehow keeping the course completely relaxed and enjoyable. He even managed a 2.5 hour drive north to celebrate my graduation!!!
If you have any thoughts of going pro, you won't get any better than Andy Stewart.

I can honestly say completing my IDC was one of the hardest yet rewarding things I have done. Throughout the course Andy showed patience and understanding and was able to adapt his teaching to meet out individual needs. He was and continues to always be available for help and support when needed.
At some stage in a few year’s time I hope to go on to become a PADI IDC Staff Instructor and I can't imagine doing my training with anyone else. If you’re thinking of continuing your PADI education I highly recommend you do it with one of New Zealand's best .... PADI Course Director Andy Stewart.

Andy Stewart was the Course Director on my IDC. Andy's extreme professionalism, excellent organisation, flexibility and relaxed manner made this a very pleasurable experience.
A better role model you would battle to find. I would recommend TDT to anyone who is thinking of becoming a professional diver.
