Why should you invest in non-technical skills training for diving? 

The answer is simple – it can save lives! 

Dive accidents often involve human error, and by developing our non-technical skills, such as communication, decision-making, and situational awareness, we can significantly reduce the risk of mishaps underwater.

Gareth Lock, course instructor and founder, has extensive experience in diving, having served in the Royal Air Force. He has dedicated his career to understanding human factors in diving. His mission is to enhance diving skills through specific training that goes beyond the traditional technical aspects and focuses on the crucial human element.
