Steve’s excellent video course allows valuable follow up study, so you can find answers when you do it for real. As a PADI instructor, I find Steve’s videos invaluable for my personal diving and for those tricky to answer questions from students. Keep up the good... read moreDai Leake 8 months 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 8 months ago

Steve's online videos are a great value and a resource that I regularly use.

The video presentations are clear and comprehensive. I wholeheartedly recommend Steve's online videos, and I am certain that viewing them has made me... read morePatrick Mullaney 5 months ago
These videos are an excellent resource for sidemount divers at any experience level. So much of sidemount diving is managing equipment, and Mr. Martin’s step-by-step instruction videos do a tremendous job of transferring his considerable experience in sidemount instruction into digestible chunks that are easily replicated in real world diving. For the novice, Mr. Martin provides useful context and a building-block style of teaching that... read moreMike KefalasPADI MSDT #2321954 months ago
I have used the online videos for the past year to improve my sidemount diving skills. I decided to renew the subscription based on continued updating of content by Steve. I have found his videos to be informative, well balanced and very educational. Every video has tips that are not taught in sidemount classes. The information learned has improved my trim, balance,... read moreMichael Shell 4 months ago
As an aspiring technical and sidemount diver, these videos are invaluable. I found that the trials Steve has gone through show in his experience when guiding students and pros alike. The methods shown are through his extensive experience in water and using his teachings has reduced my learning curve significantly. - P.dauteuilKL Gregger 3 months ago

The course perfectly matches the online video series. Highly recommended to all divers desiring to improve their knowledge & skills.Cristian Pellegrini 3 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 1 month ago
It's very very valuable for improving my sidemount skills and more importantly, building up a proper and practical sidemount configuration concept as well. I've repeatedly watched the online training videos before every time I drump into the water practicing. You will learn something new after each watching. The investment is worthy and definitely the right choice.Stanley Chan 2 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.
