    positive review  It is definitely a great base of help, knowledge, instruction and inspiration in all fields of diving. Steve is an incredible professional, with an impressive knowledge base and didactics. I'm very grateful for how much I've learned and I'm constantly learning from Side Mount..

    positive review  Worth every penny. Just finished my side mount training and I was way ahead of the curve because I studied these videos. I had all my gear put together and dry run techniques down before I even got with the trainer. Even if you don't plan on sidemounting, the videos on proper weighting are priceless. Why isn't this stuff standard fare with the training agencies?... read more

    Thank you for the wealth of training information on sidemount. It is without a doubt the best money and investment I have spent with regards to diving. I have watched all the online videos multiple of times and often go back to certain ones to review on whatever I am working on.

    Amazing online series that has been massively beneficial towards my sidemount education. The detail Steve goes into in each video has helped me step my diving up to another level. Thank you!

    I would like to thank you for your astonishing work creating training materials, not just for sidemount, but for all divers in general. I belong to those who believe proper training is key to good scuba diving practices, and your online training certainly helps on that front. Philippe, South Korea.

    positive review  I'm not an instructor, but I'm always looking for new input. I stumpled upon Steve's videos and found them so helpful. The training concept is top notch and I would love to see more instructors following his approach. I started with the backmount package and was so into it from the early beginning that I ended up even booking the instructor package because I couldn't... read more

    I cannot say enough about the online training video series. The quality of the instruction, the level of detail and how much I have learned from them is amazing! Your very clear and simple demonstrations have been an incredible learning experience for me as I continue to work through the 4 training modules. Thank you so much for developing these and I look forward... read more

    I hear you say often, you welcome any feedback. So my feedback is, that I very much appreciate your e-learning platform. I found it, as the best on the market compering by the content. As a teacher, I can imagine how much time does it cost to create valuable training materials. So thank you very much, I am sure I am not the only one... read more

    positive review  I signed up in 2019 for the full program in the search for better ways of side-mount diving (and diving in general). The videos are focussed on a single topic, easy to follow and greatly narrated. Pointed me to a lot of things to learn and maybe even more to unlearn.
    In 2021 when the instructor series came out I signed up for that as well....

    positive review  I have found these online courses to be invaluable in improving my sidemount diving. Sidemount is both skill and equipment intensive. So it is essential to spend a great deal of time in and out of the water to get it right. These courses break down sidemount diving into manageable chunks that really makes them easy to follow and the skills easy to replicate on... read more

    Thank you, I upgraded to the instructor series 😉. Sadly, I learned much more in your online courses than in my “live” sidemount course with a SDI/TDI instructor in Egypt. With your latest tutorials it's now much better (especially as you have included more “cold water” details, and I live in Tirol/Austria, where cold water / drysuit is the “normal” setup). Keep going!

    I love your videos, far more detailed than a training agency or manufacturer provides.

    Love the instructor series so far (have gone most of the material), it is a treasure trove of information and tips on how to conduct the best training you can as an instructor. It helped me redefine some of my teaching techniques, now I will need to practice them.

    Due to where I live there are only a handful of sidemount divers living on Borneo island. And the instructor whom I took my sidemount course with is not even a seasoned sidemount diver himself… I did not enjoy diving it during the course and I blamed on the rented BC. It was a vendor who introduced me to check out Steve’s website when I... read more

    Course Progress 100% Yeeehaw! 😉 Sidemount, Free Training and Backmount (nearly) is done. Dear Steve, dear Vas, I thank you very much for your work. I really enjoyed the course and although English is not my mother tongue, I was able to follow it very well and understand everything in combination with the videos and photos. Since I’ve booked the whole package, I’m now looking... read more
