2015 has been a better year for rectotec with amongst other things, the completion of my new website.  A massive thank you must go out to Jason Brown of BARDOCreative for all his hard work, but most of all, his patience. 

I’ve published 8 blogs (link) and I am currently writing another which should be posted by the weekend, although I have many more in the pipeline for when when I have time.  I’ve taught a number of BSAC classes around the country (diver and instructor level) however as usual, my day job in the Army has got in the way and I’ve had to cancel BSAC Sports Diver and Dive Leader courses, a TDI Intro to Tech course and a PADI instructor upgrade.  I was again however a Safety Diver at TekCamp (blog), passed my Project Plan of my BSAC First Class Diver, and became a PADI Tec Rec instructor (Tec 40).

I’ve also managed to dive along the south coast in Plymouth and Porthkerris. 

2016 starts on a high with a TDI Intro to Tech course on Saturday and then straight into BSAC Sports Diver and Dive Leader courses in Cyprus on Tuesday, a BSAC Dive Leader course in February, a TDI AN/DP course in March followed by a Scapa trip in April, 4x Plymouth weekends confirmed, my BSAC First Class Diver practical exam in July and possibly a trip to Malta.  I need to look at a a PADI Tec Rec instructor upgrade and I hope to again be at TekCamp.  You will probably also see me on the TDI stand at the NEC Dive Show and at EuroTek 2016.  But as always this is all based on work not getting in the way.

As always, I’m happy to arrange courses and any time to suit you.  Why not contact me for some special deals on TDI training, as this is the direction I wish to expand into.   

Best Wishes, and safe diving in 2016.

The boring bit!

Safe diving!
