What is a Tec Tune-up and who is it for..?

After having lot's of requests from Technical Divers - I have put together a Tec Tune Up Program for both the Tec Diver and Tec Instructors which runs very similar to the PADI Scuba Review Program that is used to keep Recreational Divers skills fresh and get them ready before there diving holiday. The Tec Tune Up is for anyone who has started on the DSAT path Tec Level One, Tec Deep Diver and Tec Trimix Diver. (Special one on one sessions available for Tec Instructors wanting to get back into teaching etc)

What will we do?

There are many options it really depends on what you need, I am offering sessions where you just turn up at the pool and we go over the main Technical Diving Drills very similar to the Scuba Review Program. A little more in depth would be a session in the classroom refreshing over dive theory and watching the Technical Diving Skills DVD. I can conduct this at your local dive site or your local pool if that's better for you. Please contact me with email link at bottom of page and I will put something together for you.

What is a Peer Review?

It's mainly used for Instructors wanting to become DSAT Tec Deep Instructors. During your DSAT Tec Deep Instructor Course one part you will need will be the Peer Review Waterskills section signing off on your application thats where I come in see below for the 7 areas of the assessment - I can also administer the Tec Deep and Tec Trimix Instructor Exams please get in touch see link at bottom of this section. (IMPORTANT NOTE: The Peer Review and DSAT Instructor Exams can be very expensive if done with PADI at an IE and PADI/DSAT will recommend that you do these with a DSAT Technical Diving Instructor Trainer near you)

What Skills will we do?

Deploys and decompresses with lift bag and reel; maintains stop depth with little or no depth variation while neutrally buoyant.

 Email me - Re: Tec Tune Up & Peer Review

Calendar shows where I will be and duration of my time there. If I am in your area and you want to join a course, contact me for locations. If you see any dates free and would like me to visit your dive centre or location, drop me an email with location, course interest and possible dates.
Want to know more about how your cylinders weight changes during a dive..? Video has information on what effects the weight change and has tests showing cylinders at different air pressures during dives in salt and fresh water. It displays whether they have Negative, Neutral or Positive Buoyancy. More details found at
