I did my MOD 1 with Dave T in Egypt. There's a report somewhere on the other place. I would throughly recommend Dave as an instructor. He's put a lot of hours on the KISS and had done the dives.

I am not sure if he teaches in the UK though, but I would recommend going abroad. It doesn't work out as that much more expensive, and you get a lot more hours in conditions which are more conducive to learning.

I did mine 2012 in April.... cost wise, it was just as cheap to go to Egypt with SimonTW and have an ace week in the sun, than go to Capers for the week.... The instruction was top class and the diving superb :)....

Dave Crockford (http://psai-online.com/regions/about.htm) does the Kiss course, he runs PSAI Europe,
could be worth giving him a call.

The Rosalie Moller was amazing, exceptional conditions. :)

I've never trained with him but I've seen him teach and dived with him and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simon TW either. He's also a bloody nice guy with it (and a good laugh).

Oh go on then, I'll join the Simon TW love-in. Did my KISS Mod2 with him in Capernwray/Wastwater - highly recommended - top bloke.

There aren't many that will train KISS in the UK these days. Most choose the cautious interpretation of the HSE ruling.

You could also try Danny Wright. I've never met him but several fellow KISS divers say he's very good.

I can put you in touch with another KISSer (not on the forum). I dive with him semi-regularly and I'm sure he could advise you on training or on other stuff. Is your bro paying ;)?

No, I guess you're thinking of another MyM, there are a few of us about. Capers and Wast for me, although I have taken the CK to Malta. Never been on Blue Turtle, I don't think so anyway.
