Full details of my online training video (please review complete page before purchase)  
"My Sidemount Essentials Online Course is NOW Complete!!" 

Make sure you checkout the live video feedback reviews from students and customers that have been been watching my online videos. They give you an unbiased and varied point of view on just how effective my online training materials actually are, so make sure you listen to what they have to say before you make your purchase ;) Just click on the video links above, as new ones come in I will keep adding them... If you would like to appear here too you can just let me know.

I decided to make these online training videos for two reasons;

1) to really help raise the bar for sidemount training that is being offered worldwide, I was highly motivated by the shear amount of emails I get by newly certified sidemount divers who have received poor training and ask me for advice.

2) A way to give you a reasonably low cost option to get access to this level of instruction and be able to keep it for future reference as you continue to learn and develop.

New Video Package Options...
New underwater skills video only  

Just click the one video package you are most interested in, if you later want to upgrade I will not charge you any additional upgrade costs, you just pay the difference in each package. Send me a reply email from your original purchase and tell me what new package you want and I will email back with revelant PayPal upgrade link or tell you the amount for a bank transfer.  

Complete breakdown of what your going to get for your "hard earned" money
  • Video 1 - Cylinder Workshop Configuration (50 minutes)
  • Video 2 - Regulator Workshops Training (60 minutes)
  • Video - Harness & BCD Workshop Training (96 minutes)
  • Video - Sidemount Essentials - Tips & Tricks (104 minutes) 
  • Video - Stage/Deco Cylinder Workshop Training (65 minutes)
  • NEW Skills Video - Covers all Sidemount Essentials Underwater Skills and Development (8 hours) 

All videos are released initally with English (closed caption) subtitles, you can find that option in the actual YouTube screen player, more translated languages get added once each translator get the subtitles back to me. I suggest you should download the online study materials, you get workshop indexes that cover (minute by minute) exactly what each video gives you (examples are in English) more languages available further down this page, look for foreign language section. 

Online Study Materials (free to download)

Once you view the downloads folder, just choose the file in the language that is best for you ;)

These videos have over 6 years of my sidemount teaching experience in them: What I discuss and teach you in videos 1 to 4 plus underwater skills you need to do at least 4 days of actual training with me to get that level of knowledge. What's extra special is video 5 because that knowledge has only been available to people during day 5 and 6 of technical based training with me, that is until NOW!!

I am very excited and confident these online training videos will really raise the bar and take sidemount training to a whole new level!! Since initial release July 2014 uptake and feedback so far has been outstanding, with this new underwater skills video addition the training materials are now complete and the sky's the limit!! :D

To get access to all the videos you must follow these 3 steps
  1. Join me on Google PlusFirst choose one of the video packages above, complete the PayPal checkout (I will be replying to your PayPal email address, so make sure you check it).
  2. You need to login into or create a free Google account (click here), if you already have a Googlemail (Gmail) email address then you are actually halfway there, you just need to click to upgrade this to Google-plus account, again use the click here link above.
  3. Once you are logged into Google Plus, all you do is visit my page (click here) or click on the picture link to the right and then you must click FOLLOW on my page, that's it!! ...the rest is down to me. 
Once you completed those 3 steps...
  • I will verify your payment and email you back with my standards and conditions agreement and ask you to complete my online authorisation form. 
  • Once you have filled in form, I will then add you to my "private video circles" which are linked to each training video.
  • You then receive a second email from me with all the video links for what you purchased. 
Important to note:

Remember you need to do is make sure you are logged into your Google account (on the same browser your going to watch the YouTube links on) and then click on each link and the video will play. This is because all videos are private so even if you have the links you must be logged into your "authorised" Google account whenever you want to watch the online training videos. 

DISCLAIMER: All my online training videos are for demonstration purposes only, they are not a substitute for in-water training by a certified scuba diving instructor. The videos are not to be downloaded OR shared in anyway, they are strictly for viewing by each individual buyer only. I ask you to please respect and value all work I have put into this, all videos are subject to copyright by Steve Martin - Side Mount Scuba Diving and contract is governed by English law and any disputes are reserved to English courts. Anyone found to be misusing their video access will have access removed and possible legal action taken.

I will be keeping all people's identities that purchase these online training videos strictly confidential, unless one chooses to advertise that they have my videos themselves, no-one will know you have these videos apart from us. I welcome all feedback on anything covered in the videos and will do my best to clarify anything that is not clear after you watch them. 

Foreign Language Section
  • Videos 1 to 5 currently have video subtitles available in - English, Spanish, German, Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese & Bulgarian  
  • Underwater Skills Video currently has video subtitles available in - English 

I will keep updating this list when each new subtitle language comes in from the translators, I am hoping to have >15 languages completed by 17th June 2015.

Workshop Indexes (free to download)

Once you view the downloads folder, just choose the file in the language that is best for you ;)

Note: I recommend you print out the entire video index and use the blank space on the page to make notes as you watch each video, I ask students booked on a course to bring their notes in with them.
I want to help translate your videos (in return for FREE access) 

My goal is to translate the English subtitles from all 6 videos that total (14.3 hours) into as many different languages as possible, I am offering FOC access to a person who will in exchange translate the complete English subtitles (.srt files) file into their foreign language, your subtitles must be suitable for uploading to YouTube. I will send you each time-coded text file, all you do is replace the exact English text with what must be an "accurate" translation of what I said. 

My conditions for FOC access and to be named as one of my video translators;

I like the idea of experienced scuba divers who are interested in the videos doing the translations, rather than me out sourcing the work overseas. However there are these conditions...

  • Each translator must purchase my complete range of online videos, from purchase date if they complete subtitles within 1 month they receive 100% of costs back.
  • If the translator completes within 2 months they recieve back 50%, if it takes over 2 months 0% back as I will be looking for a new translator.
  • I will send you my 10 minute and 30 minute promotional video subtitle file and video workshop index files and you translate them ASAP.
  • If any divers identify problems with your translations then you must make all future corrections. 
There is also a way you can earn money to;

I will also give FOC access and pay a fixed rate of 75 GBP to ALL translators, if they can take on the NEW video work terms (above) AND finish the translation of my current videos 1 to 5 and check accuracy of ALL previous translation work done by previous translator, with the condition that all 5 videos and the new skills video must be completed with 2 months.

  • This means that ALL my sidemount online training videos should have ALL language subtitles completed by 17th May 2015!!
I am sure people are going to be asking me, what is coming next...

Don't worry just because I am offering online training, this does not mean I stop teaching sidemount divers. In fact anyone who books on a "in-water training course"  with me will get the full 100% cost of their online videos back of my training rates, so in effect the videos are free of charge to all my future students.

I am also going to be offering a online remote coaching service, that is targeted towards those people that want training & feedback but can not take part in one of my in-water training courses. So stay tuned for full details on that to come very soon, thank you!!
