Latest News.. Students Feedback from Online Courses are in !!
I started watching the side mount online series Xmas 2017. I have been enthralled by the dedication that has gone into the development, commentary and quality of the videos. from the setting up of tanks, harnesses to S-Drills, ascents and descents. A must for all aspiring and qualified sidemounters and dare I mention it, backmounters. (who have not seen the light yet!)Simon CSimon Cohen 1 year ago
Great instruction series. Unlike most online courses in other areas of study I have taken, the videos I have viewed are clear, concise, and give adequate information to improve many aspects of SM diving, and are applicable in other areas of diving as well.Steve's "face-to-face" method of presenting the material makes the viewer get that "in-class" feel that helps transfer the knowledge by allowing... read moreJohn Van Hyfte 1 year ago
I love how you’re giving the diving community a taste of your online videos. I had purchased the videos several months back and have really enjoyed them. The previews that you are showing are only the tip of the iceberg compared to the full access ones. It is well worth the time and money to watch these videos. I went for the “everything included” package... read moreJared Grant 1 year ago

I started learning about sidemount with Rob Neto’s book, but learning sidemount started with Steve Martin’s online training. What is particularly good that Steve explains why you need to do things. What I miss sofar is a subject about ring bungees and the Dive Rite setup for tanks, if only for completeness.Bert van Leeuwen 1 year ago
Unfortunately I have never had the opportunity to follow an inwater class with Steve but his videos helped me pick up many details that others had kept secret. As an instructor, I consider that his pedagogy is excellent and that quality has improved since the first videos. Congrats. LionelJulien Chango 11 months ago
I'm a back mount tec/cave diver just getting into sidemount. Steve's videos are incredibly helpful to me learning sidemount. They are very well put together. More important though, is that he explains, demonstrates and gives the reasons why his side mount methods are better than others. If you're a diver at any level I highly encourage you to watch his videos! They will definitely help... read moreMatthew Fish 1 year ago
Steve's Online Sidemount course is the best investment I ever made in an online course.I have learned so much from his online course from techniques to gear setup. his online course is like my sidemount Bible I always refer back to it and perfect my techniquesThank you Steve for making this possible.Naisan Ehsan Esfahani 11 months ago
There are so many good reviews here, why would adding another one make a difference? Well, it might not, but this review is from a technical dive instructor who had already been diving sidemount for some time. I didn't really need to take this online course, and as an educator (professor,) I am quite familiar with teaching strategies, methodologies and pedagogy. However, these aspects of... read moreRon Breines 1 year ago
As a relatively new diver I was extremely pleased with the quality of the videos and instruction that I got from the series. Steve had useful and relevant tips that all divers would benefit from.The video series are well organized, clearly presented, and of a very high quality. I have done online learning through some of the training agencies, and I can say... read moreBarret Hatton 1 year ago
Before I did Steve online course I did the padi sidemount speciality and of course I learnt a lot in the water on that course but then i started watching Steve videos and practicing the skills in the pool (video myself at the same time so I could criticise myself after) and personally for me most of Steve methods have worked for me 😀... read moreMatt Rivett 1 year ago
I will be renewing for the third year in a row. I love having something to go to when I need a little help every now and then. Steve is precise and to the point in his videos. And I love the new videos about diving the caves in Florida as those are the caves I dive. Looking forward to new videos. Thanks for the... read moreChris Fletcher 1 year ago
Can't say enough how helpful Steves videos have been. Not just on the side-mount stuff, but throughout his series of skills. He has obviously spent a decent amount of time thinking of how best to present all the information, with plenty of top tips to learn. Whether you are already a skilled diver or new to the sport. There is... read moreStu Sharpless 5 months ago
Got to give a shout out to Benjamin Stanfield for recommending this to me. I have been going through all the videos and learning how I can improve myself in diving whether it's inside the water or outside. I am learning new things and will be using those new skills to train to become a better backmount diver and eventually... read moreBryan Naranjo 6 months ago

Who is my online training suitable for ?
Whether your a newly certified or highly experienced recreational, technical diver or dive instructor my online training will benefit you.
It is modular in design so you can watch and re-watch all sections as many times as you like, each course is broken down into small manageable sections, each with many 3, 5, 10 or 15 minute single videos. Out of all 169 videos, average length is 8 Minutes.
You just choose your chosen equipment configuration, backmount single & twinset, sidemount or technical multi-cylinder. Note all HD training videos are edited with a complete voice-over using the latest production quality audio and video recording equipment available.
The goal was to create online training, capable of surpassing most instructors!
Scuba training should not be limited
to meeting in person only !!
I now have online training products that far exceeds anything else to date, my goal was to have something that could be as good as me actually being there in person with you and arguably in some ways even better than that!!
More about Steve
Learning starts before you hit the water
We work on practical dive skills in-water but understanding what you need to do and why, comes through learning dive theory which is best done through video based eLearning.
A student during their course can easily recall previously learned information, then focus 100% on underwater skills.
This maximises students and instructors time, resulting in skills being better performed and absorbed during training.
