Done a rescue course a couple of weeks ago with James as the instructor. The way in which James delivered the course was just awesome, being able to have a laugh but remain professional at all times. There was no delay in answering any questions and being able to explain things in such a way even I could understand which shows just how knowledgeable he is and how adaptable of an instructor he is. 10/10

Good morning James,

Thank you for your professionalism, enthusiasm, and genuine care. 

You optimize your time and resources to conduct and deliver the best instructional technique I have been privileged to.

Tasmanian Divers North, and South, should be honoured to have such a diligent, knowledgeable and charismatic young instructor with skills, knowledge and people management skills.

Sincerely thank you for making the Rescue Diver Course, which in my opinion is a very serious and important course, the best planned and executed course I have completed.
