Why do you want Steve Martin to be your DSAT Instructor Trainer..?

For those serious about becoming a technical instructor and joining the ranks of DSAT technical instructors, then why not have your training from someone who not only trains Instructors but also spends most of his time actively teaching divers to become technical divers and has years of technical dive experience backing him.

Steve can travel to you and work with you and your staff to create a great Technical Diving Team and Tec Facility within your Dive Centre.

Before you can apply for your Tec Trimix Instructor rating you must first meet these prerequisites:

  • Have a minimum of 200 logged dives with at least 20 technical decompression dives requiring at least one stage/deco cylinder. Of these, at least 10 must have been made deeper than 40 metres/130 feet using trimix.
  • Be a DSAT Tec Deep Instructor, or have successfully completed the DSAT Tec Deep Instructor Training course including the instructor examinations 
  • Be a renewed PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer or higher level PADI Instructor. 
  • Be certified as a DSAT Trimix Diver or have a qualifying full trimix certification.  

Advantages of completing the Tec Trimix Instructor Course...

Tec Deep Instructors provide the most comprehensive technical instruction available. Tec Trimix divers explore the outer edges of technical deep diving. If you are both a Tec Deep Instructor and Tec Trimix Diver then the DSAT Tec Trimix Instructor trainer course is for you. The DSAT Trimix Diver Instructor course incorporates instructional philosophies and course goals that directly address the demanding and challenging nature of technical diving with helium gas mixes. Once qualified as a Tec Trimix Instructor you'll be one of the elite who can teach the Tec Trimix Diver course. During the course you'll learn how to teach diving at the cutting edge down to a depth of 75 metres/240 feet. 

Upon completion of course what criteria must be met and how long will it take..? 

  • Have a minimum of 350 logged dives, with at least 50 decompression dives, 30 deeper than 40 metres/130feet using trimix as the bottom gas, also at least 10 of these deeper than 50 metres/165feet using trimix with less than 21 percent Oxygen.
  • Have assisted with at least one DSAT Trimix course.
  • Have successfully completed the Tec Trimix Instructor Standards Exam and Tec Trimix Instructor Theory and Practical Application Exam.
  • The duration of the course depends on your previous experience, if you're already a Tec Trimix Diver, Trimix Instructor from another organization, or Trimix Diver from another organization. So it could last from a few days to a few weeks.
