As a 20 year member of PADI, I have been privileged to see and be part of the evolution in diver education. PADI has always been at the forefront when it comes to providing quality diver training backed with educational materials which are unmatched in our industry. However, when it came to developing a presence in the technical training area of diving, I was intrigued to see what PADI would deliver.
Having now completed my TecRec Instructor Trainer Crossover & TecRec CCR Instructor Trainer programs , I must say that PADI have exceeded my expectations in what I believed would be the level of training and materials they would need to produce to compete with the other technical training agencies.
A lot of work and time has been spent in making sure that the materials don’t only look good, but that the standards and procedures that bind the courses together all contribute to making competent and safe technical divers. Whether it be in the Tec Deep, Tec Trimix or CCR programs, divers will get the very best education under the TecRec programs. As a new TecRec IT, I am certainly looking forward to been part of this new and exciting revolution.
