Technical Diver Testimonials

what the students have to say

I feel it is always important to get recommendations about the diving Instructor you will put your faith into to help you achieve your goals, ultimately you will never know if it will be the best method of training for you until you have tried it but it does help if you can obtain a little feedback from past students and customers so here is a few I seem to have made happy.

Protech Matt Max

November 2014

Matt, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you, Protech Dive College ( and Max, Dan and Chris for the excellent experience and training during my month stay in Thailand (Nov. 2014).

Courses:  JJ CCR Extended Range Trimix
                JJ CCR Full Cave

During the month I spent diving with Matt and Max we covered a lot of ground. And, as a diver with almost 30 years experience I've learned to get my training only from professionals for whom I have received personal recommendations from people I trust. That's why I chose you and Protech Dive College, you came highly recommended and I must say you lived up to the billing.

Cave diving isn't for the faint of heart nor is it something that should be entered into on a whim. That's especially true for CCR cave diving. It's serious diving and I appreciate your professional, thorough and detailed approach to training. It's imperative to have demanding and firm standards/criteria which are made clear right up front... it's just as important to know that you are paying for training and not to pass and get another cert card for your collection. A cert card will be of little use when everything goes pear shaped 1000 meters into a cave, or 100 meters deep on a CCR trimix dive.

I also appreciated your local knowledge and hospitality while we were up at Khao Lak - Khao Sok National Park – it was amazing. The diving was great, the training fantastic and the BBQ afterwards was just as good.

Even after 30 years of diving, I still have a lot to learn so thanks for helping to get me there I look forward to putting your instruction to good use in the future… and I still have more to learn on that JJ of mine. I'll be back when I've got my hours up!

I really had a great time - thanks!

Best Regards,
