Why Choose Us?
Martin loves to teach, so if you love to learn you’re in the right place.
Martin is one of the world’s most experienced and qualified instructor trainers able to teach courses at all levels from IANTD, PADI and both of the major Cave Diver training organisations (NACD and NSS-CDS).
Martin is an active technical diver and explorer outside of teaching and brings a wealth of experience and expertise not always available from others. Although a keen wreck diver Martin’s real passion is cave diving and rebreathers and he was the first ever IANTD CCR Cave Instructor Trainer.
Martin is currently the Training Director for the National Association for Cave Diving, is on the Board of Advisors for IANTD and has been a Technical Field Consultant for PADI, assisting with the development of their rebreather and sidemount courses. All of this means any course with Martin will not only be exciting and fun, but the very best in diver education.
More reasons to choose Martin Robson Diving:
Many instructors use passive teaching techniques, where you learn by copying, by trial and error and through experience. While this is an important part of learning, Martin also employs direct teaching techniques, educating, explaining and showing you techniques to help you reach your goal.
How do direct teaching techniques benefit you?
You don’t have to worry about how you are doing or what you need to do next, that’s Martin’s job. You can enjoy the dives and the challenge of learning. As Martin says “It’s my job to teach you so that you can achieve your aim”.
Does Martin only teach high level tec courses?
No, there is nothing Martin enjoys more than introducing people to technical diving or the courses that lead to it. The great thing about getting on the tec path is that you are not expected to turn up knowing everything already! Starting out with a top tec diving instructor means you’ll learn the right way from the very beginning.
What tec courses do you offer?
Martin teaches everything from your first sidemount or twinset dive through to trimix open circuit, recreational and technical rebreather through to CCR Trimix and CCR Expedition Trimix. Cavern to Technical & CCR Cave, plus lots of tec specialties such as DPV, tec sidemount, deep cave, multi-stage and extended range cave courses.
