I did my IDC with David Hayler-Montague and Colin Scowcroft at Bubbles CDC, last November, and I literally have nothing bad to say! From beginning to end, everything was amazing.
David and Colin helped, guided and taught me (and of course the other students) through the full IDC and the exams. As they said during the preparation week, they dedicated themselves completely to us. You can pass with a 3, but why not go for that perfect 5, is what they said, be confident with what you are doing.
The first week was a preparation week, so simply get to the level you need to have before the course starts. I am so happy I did that week! David really helped me a lot, because I got to practice skills I was not very sure about and learn things I had never done before. So if you are in doubt, definitely do this, it is the best kind of preparation you can get!
The second week, the IDC, the real work started. David and Colin really gave us the time to develop, become confident, while challenging us to bring out the best.
In the end I had so much fun while learning everything. David and Colin are not only course directors, they are coaches and friends, and I can highly recommend them!
Thank you both so much for everything!
