Personally I would like that to pay special thanks to Mike Rowley for giving us his time, experience and guidance in all aspects of the week. His in depth explanations, historical insights and general diving knowledge reflects his position and respect within the technical diving community.
As Tekstreme, we are working very hard alongside BSAC to promote and provide technical training to run alongside what the divers are experienced to in UK waters. Our BSAC Technical training centre can provide a base for UK technical instructors to come to Egypt and teach their students through our centre, where we can provide the support and local knowledge to make instruction easier. We welcome BSAC Technical clubs and individual divers to come on join us where we can help out in any capacity needed.
