Welcome to the diver training page, on the left you will find a menu with the various different agencies and their courses that we offer.
I'd like to point out that we don't just offer technical training we are MORE than happy to run recreational courses; we do however approach our recreational training in the same methodical way that we do our technical training. Working with small numbers allows us to concentrate on your individual learning needs, thus allowing you to get the most out of your course and then the most out of your upcoming diving. As a by product of this approach our PADI training has leaned toward the speciality programs as listed on the PADI page, but we can offer much more of the syllabus than that listed.
People come to the diver training page for a variety of reasons, if you know the course you are after then you should find it on the appropriate agency page. If however you are like a lot of people and are looking at what might come next I've put some common scenarios below and some suggestions on where to start looking; the best bit of advice I can give though is have a look around the site at some of the various options and then get intouch, while there is a huge amount of great information on the web I'm a great believer in picking up the phone or sending an email to a real person.
You're a PADI/Recreational/Tech diver who has only dived abroad, you have heard about the fantastic diving oppurtunities here in the UK and want to get wet. Head straight for the PADI page and check out the Drysuit Speciality, that is where you definitely want to start.
You're a dedicated single cylinder diver or still relatively new to diving but want to expand your horizons. The PADI Speciality programme offers some fantastic learning and diving oppurtunites but if you have already completed some of these your may want to consider the TecRec - Tec 40 course, this will introduce you to limited Deco but can still be undertaken on your single cylinder.
You would like to try 'tech' diving, be well prepared for an upcoming course or would like a refresher of the core skills then any of the 'Tec Basics/Essentials' programmes will work for you, or potentially just some training time without the need of a formal certification
You would like to spend more time in the 35-45m range, then either the combined TDI Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures or IANTD Advanced Nitrox/Advanced Recreational Trimix course is where to look. There are strong arguments for both, the best thing to do is have a read and then get intouch to see which option works best for you. The TecRec Tec 45 course is also an excellent option but is best suited to those who are/have been following the PADI system.
You're looking to move beyond 45m into the 45-60m range, Normoxic Trimix is where you need to be looking - it is found in the IANTD section.
You're looking to step beyond Normoxic Trimix, than Advanced Trimix is the next step; while perfectly possible, O/C Advanced Trimix can for some people give to much of a logistical headache and they look towards a CCR. Eitherway the best thing to do is get intouch so we can discuss your personal requirements.
If you find yourself fed up of blowing bubbles? Well its CCR or retirement, there are some fantastic CCR's available today. Currently I'm using a mixture of the JJ-CCR, Inspiration and Poseidon Mk6, drop us a line to discuss what might suit your needs the best and to arrange those all important try dives.
