The following are a selection of articles on diving courses by Andrew Whitehead that were published in Dive Log Australasia

The author attended and later sat in on these advanced training courses again for the purposes of writing about them.  The author is an experienced recreational diver, not a professional diving instructor.  Consequently the articles focus on 'what we did' rather than 'how to do it'.  They also provide an example of the quality and level of training that a new diver should be looking for.
