I completed my Nitrox course on Saturday and I must say I absolutely loved it! Miguel’s personal experience and knowledge made learning so much more fun and easy to understand. I highly recommend this course for everyone.

Well organised and well trained presenters ... knowledge of subject matter was excellent as was Neil's ability to quickly catter for the various levels of understanding & training of the participants within the group.
