"After over a decade as a recreational diver, I decided to make the leap to the professional arena. I knew there was only one place I wanted to pursue this path…Aldora Dive College. I am extremely happy with my decision. Liang was well organized and prepared us extensively for the exam.

Not only was she thorough about how to properly prepare for the IE but how to apply to real life situations as an instructor. No stone was left unturned. No question was too small. If one of us was having an issue with a skill/topic/whatever, she went above and beyond her duty to help us master it. The ability to shadow on working dive trips taught me practical and applicable experience.
I have the upmost respect and appreciation for Liang.
She leads by example and sets a high standards."
Many thanks.
