Reflections of the UTD IDC, Philippines 2013

I am not known to or have a reputation for giving unnecessary "kudos", "like's" or "public parsing" ...of anyone let alone a group. Neither am I much of a writer, however in this case, I felt a need to give a deep down,  honest and heart felt  "Shout Out" to this extra-ordinary group of 5 UTD Instructor Candidates and 3 UTD Instructor Trainer Candidates…..More specifically to  Jacky Lee, Tony Tso, Enan Tsai, Wu Ping Hsing, Dicky Ho (Instructor Candidates) and Juan Naval, Wu Yu-Tong and Lu…

UTD Side-mount Trimix

Members, 

Recently I have being getting quite a few questions asking me about trimix diving, if is it possible in side-mount configuration, and if there is any difference in the Z system configuration?



So, I thought I would answer these questions by saying ---- YES of course it is…

Old ways

Yesterday I had a great experience sharing the ESM to a really good friend and a great mentor. I thought I'd blog about it because it was quite a different experience for me to teach someone who had such a great impact on my own diving career about 20 years ago. There were a lot of surprising moments for both of us. He was surprised by UTD's topsy turvy thinking and progressive style, I was surprised that he was. One particular quote that struck me was "I've been teaching **** for over 20…

New Tips to streamline your Z Side-Mount System

Members

Last week I completed a UTD Foundational and Side-mount IDC in Anilo, Philippines. Over the week the candidates practiced and prepared for evaluation, their dry runs, lectures and skills for the ESM/ZUBA, Open Water, Essentials of Recreational Side-mount (Single tank) and Essentials of Side-Mount (Double Tank) classes. They did excellently and I will be recommending them to the Training Board of Advisor for evaluation. I am sure we will see some new UTD Instructors in CEBU and…

Some answers to why Z-manifold and how it works.

Members



Since we won "best is show" at DEMA 2012 , I have being fielding a number of questions about the Z-side mount system. For example: Why does Z-Side Mount System use a Iso Manifold or distribution block. Does it balance the tank pressure?



So I thought I would write a little blog post today answering these.



The Z-iso-fold (isolatable manifold) has a similar ideology as the Z-distribution block in that it only distributes the Low Pressure input gas or gases… Continue

What made UTD's Z-Side Mount Diving System ScubaGadgets' "Best in Show" at DEMA 2012



Side Mount diving is becoming wildly popular among recreational open water divers, advanced technical divers, cave divers, and wreck divers alike. Although rooted in cave diving, many “regular” open water divers are now shifting over to side-mount style diving because of…

Question: How is UTD training different from the other training agency's that teach DIR? Are there common principles?

Recently I received a question from a customer asking me what the differences are between UTD and other agency that promotes "DIR". I thought some of you might enjoy reading my response. 
 
"Thank you for the question. As you may or may not know, UTD (I) have a long history in cave diving and then later in the development of DIR, as does their founder, therefore we are both very well rooted in DIR. We and the other agency have both developed a training curriculum…

Extreme Scuba Makeover Class in Aiyanar Beach Resort, Batangas, Philippines

I had a blast of a time with the first batch of Extreme Scuba Makeover X-students from Manila!  It was a day of learning and sharing with moments of great discovery.  From a quick dip in the morning, to snorkelling, horsing around with that wonderful ZUBA contraption, so much change transpired in a few hours of a fun foundational overhaul.  Congratulations to Voltz, Irene and Jujut!  If it weren't for your collective commitment, this event would not have been as great a success as it…

UTD Instructor Development Course (IDC) in Puerto Galera, Philippines 2012

UTD has always looked for Instructors who want to offer a progressive training and a diving system that has the highest standard and quality in the industry. Most agencies out there teach a cookie cutter class and their "old" style of teaching methods and equipment produce "run of the mill" divers with the bare minimum skills to survive.

UTD is the "Rolls Royce" of the industry and has always sought the dedicated professional who wants to offer a progressive and unique program, one…
