"Having recently completed my BSAC Sports Diver course with rectotec I just wanted to offer a recommendation to anyone else considering training with them. From initial contact through to the most comprehensive joining pack I've ever received Tim certainly set the tone for the course. Both the theory and practical training were top notch with Tim offering coaching and guidance to not just meet but exceed the standards required for the course. I found the video feedback from the training very beneficial in pin pointing exactly what I did and where it could be improved. If you're considering training with rectotec you won't be disappointed and I look forward to taking another course with them soon."

"Just completed my TDI Into-to-Tech course with Tim. The course organisation was excellent, as was Tim's instruction and feedback. I feel I've got a really solid foundation to build on. The weekend was challenging but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great atmosphere throughout and Tim couldn't have been more helpful - loaning kit and great advice on kit configuration."
Rob, TDI Intro-to-Tech

"Very high level of teaching; above and beyond expectations. Not only were the practical lessons taught extremely well they were backed up with excellent theory knowledge. The additional tips and training was also a great addition to the course. Sports Diver gained, enjoyable diving and great company - you can't ask for more."

"Tim's teaching style is excellent; relaxed, enthusiastic and very thorough. His subject level knowledge, infectious enthusiasm and relaxed teaching style made for a very informative and fun session. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. I will be booking TDI Intro to tec with Tim soon."
Ian, TDI Nitrox Diver
"Tim Gort is a very professional and knowledgeable instructor who will go out of his way to help, guide and advise anyone who is in need. I would recommend rectotec if you are thinking of applying for a course as Tim will personally go that extra mile to deliver any level of course without hesitation."
Jason, TDI Intro-to-Tech
"I completed the TDI Advanced Nitrox and Helitrox course with Tim at rectotec and thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend rectotec. The entire course from the initial planning to the diving itself was very well organised and Tim is clearly a very knowledgeable and experienced instructor. He is transparent with the standard required of you through the course but always makes the time to support you in meeting them. Overall, I got more out of the course than I expected and was very impressed."
Chris, TDI Advanced Nitrox and Helitrox
"An experienced diver once told me ‘choose your instructor before you choose your course’, which turned out to be excellent advice. Tim and rectotec came highly recommended by several experienced technical divers I know and have dived with and after an initial conversation with Tim prior to the Advanced Deco and Nitrox course, I knew I’d made a good choice. Tim made the theory part of the course interesting by combining books with power point presentations, videos and a multitude of handouts, making complex subject matter relevant and easier to grasp.
The practical aspect of the course started with a kit critique. Tim’s advice was excellent and the small ‘tweaks’ here and there were noticeable on the first dive. Tim’s dive briefs were clear, concise but kept relaxed. Once underwater Tim’s skills demonstrations are excellent as was his communication and along with his patient instruction we quickly progressed, the course culminating in two dives at the NDAC where all our newly developed skills and knowledge were executed as a dive team, under the watchful eye of Tim – with a few unexpected surprises thrown in for good measure!!
All in all an excellent course run in a competent, professional manor by an excellent instructor"
"Having just completed the BSAC Explorer mixed Gas course with Tim I was amazed on how much I learned in the weekend. Tim delivered a brilliant training package to a very high standard. He took his time and helped at every turn working from simple basics (which we sometimes forget) to the more detailed planning cycles required). I would highly recommend a course with Tim and rectotec. Great value for money delivered in a professional a proactive manor with just enough motivational nudges to keep you on track. A great instructor and a recommended course."
