About A Cave and Tec Diving Instructor

Technical, tech, tec or tek diving?

We all feel that we pay too much for things and get too little- that is especially true of the scuba diving business! At Tec Diving Instructor we believe that you should get more than that. And that's what we strive to give.

Benefit from the most advanced dive training and instruction with a highly experienced and extremely well-qualified technical and cave diving instructor.

Train with the best and train right!

Why settle for less?

Tech or technical diving, tec or tek diving, call it what you will, can be surprisingly accessible to divers through very comprehensive, progressive, challenging, enjoyable, and safe training courses. The courses are highly rewarding; I dare you not to enjoy it!

We offer advanced diving, specialty courses, Nitrox, advanced Nitrox, introductory and advanced decompression procedures, Normoxic Trimix, Hypoxic Trimix, sidemount, wreck, advanced wreck, Cavern, Cave and rebreather.

Technical diving is the bridge to a whole world of diving opportunities that very few experience. What's stopping you?

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Always ask your instructor:
how long have you been instructing THIS level?
what is your training philosophy?
what is your pass/fail policy?
how often do you teach this course?
when was the last time?
and the time vefore that?
why you and not someone else?

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. MSRP isnt always what you should be paying. But bargain basement pricing isnt always what is it cracked up to be either. Pay a fair price for a fair product (in my case, technical and cave scuba training)- isnt that what we all want to do?

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. What is it about the agencies that you train through that caused you to select those agencies?
(If the answer is because that is what my instructor taught then you might think again!)

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Am I ready to commit to training if what I hear meets with my approval or am I just kicking tyres?

Too often people get wrapped up in the decision making process and end up with analysis paralysis- ghastly phrase, I know.

Have set questions that you want the answers to- base them upon what you will get out of it- is the instructor experienced, how long, what type of diving do they specialise in etc.

LISTEN to the answers you receive, dont just hear the words. This is important as your training may be called upon to save your life one day.

So Train Right!

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. By the time divers come to me for training they have been around the block a bit, spoken to several instructors and been taught by a few. So they sort of know what to expect- and are they wrong! EVERY student leaves me satisfied, proud and capable- they known they've Trained Right!

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Meeting great people- many of them become really solid friends.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. When are you available to do (insert here) course?
Lets sort that out right now!

How much does it cost?
Less than you think- especially as I include all of the gear you will need too.


How much deco theory do we cover?

Clients are most often surprised by how deeply I unpack the theoretical side of this level of diving. As a mathematician I take the complex and arcane issues of the underpinnings of the various competing decompression algorithms and make them readily and easily understandable to my students.

Students are then in a position to make informed decisions and engage in informed discourse about this critical and often neglected area (neglected because it requires the instructor to be at least capable of understanding it- which is, sadly, rarely the case)

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. Of course. Any good instructor would.

Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

A. Trimix- ICD theory
Recreational diving- renreathers
Technical diving- sidemount
