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.

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

Most people learn technical diving in backmount (both cylinders located on back), if you take a sidemount course and instructor sidemount course with me you will even be able to train your future students in sidemount (one cylinder located separately under each arm) during there future DSAT tec courses. Visit for more details.
