sidemount course

i love every minute of course. Positive point of Phill :
on second dive i messed up smb, dropped spool 6m deeper try chase it get trapped leg in own smb Phill removed it within seconds if looking to contentious kicking my leg plus air bubbles as my head was down and legs up - when have so confident instructor its gives student same way confidence, in that situation i was so calm not because i was controlling situation but i felt Phill was controlling-_
Thanks once more

on video best part off chasing spool is not there because operator was chasing same spool :)

CCR Experiance

Cold day at Stoney Cove but Phil made it so worthwhile . CCR Experiance for three of us .
Day started with briefing on Rebreather , safety and dive brief . We then took it in turns to dive , each one lasting over 45 min . Was very professional and patient , even through my buoyancy issues . Just like starting all over again ! . Would definitely recommend and good value . Now looking at progressing down the Rebreather route

AP CCR course MOD1 (IANTD)

Phil is a clear calm and precise instructor with great background knowledge and a wealth of real diving experience.
This is the second tech course that I have done with him (previous one was ART Trimix) and both courses were excellent.
Be prepared to start early as there is a lot to fit in!

Sidemount diving try-out

I have used Phil on a number of occaisons for technical dive training and I am always impressed by his knowledge and experience which he tailors to your exact requirements. He is also an extremely nice guy and you will certainly have fun as well as vastly improve your diving skills.

This particular session was a sidemount try-out dive, and Phil got me in the water with an unfamiliar kit set up very quickly (but safely) in order to maximise dive time. A great introduction to an alterntive form of technical diving. I would highly recomend Phil for any typye of techincla diving you are doing or want to do, be it backmount, sidemount or rebreather.

Another well taught course! (CCR Mod 1)

This is the 3rd course I've completed with Phil, having previously done a Nitrox (2007) and Advanced Recreational Trimix (2014).

As ever his instruction both in the water and in the classroom was clear and concise and Phil takes the time to make sure you understand what it is you need to do in order to successfully complete the task in hand.

Unfortunately the course materials from the IANTD for this course are quite poor but that is outside of Phil's control and Phil ensures you have really understood the content while delivering the classroom sessions at a pace that is tailored to the individual needs of the students.

CCR Trydive

Three of us went to Stoney Cove to do our first CCR trydive,we were met by Phil at the entrance to Stoney nice and early to make full use of our time.We are given a full rundown on the rebreather and pre dive checks,the info was given to us clearly and its obvious Phil knows his stuff.We then spent the best part of an hour each in the water under instruction,running some bailout procedures,then trying our best to fin along the six metre shelf,all under Phils carefull watch.The guy gets top marks for patience!his style of instruction is great and he seems unfazed by our diving style on this different piece of kit.I would absolutely recommend Phil to anyone wanting a trydive,a great experience.

CCR diver

I did the 5 day CCR diver with Phil.
The whole experience was extremely positive, the review of my abilities was accurate, whilst protecting my sensitive nature lol. I think there were several times where I was not as good as I would have liked to have been.

He was able to access my learning style and has been very helpful since the course in introducing me to other individuals where I can get time in on my unit. The technical aspects / theory were explained fully.

I was shocked at how all the diving took me back to the beginning bouncing up and down with poor buoyancy etc hardly any of my experience came in handy. This was managed very well.

Would recommend to anyone and looking forward to 12 months time for the next level.

Thanks Phil

CCR Rebreather course

From my initial thought of moving on to rebreathing diving, Phil Grigg, advised me on what to look for when purchasing a rebreather, and before the course actually started, reviewed all components with me, taking it apart and putting it back together correctly. Having started the CCR course, I suffered a major personal problem which took me out of diving for a while. Phil worked with me on my return, reviewing the previous training and helped me get back into the water again, making major effort to ensure I was comfortable diving again.
Throughout the course Phil was always helpful and willing to answer what must be repeative questions to him as if I was the first to have asked them.
When some of my equipment failed Phil, even lent me his to ensure I could finish off the course.

Fantastically knowledgable, helpful, considerate and always willing to assist regardless of context, I will definitely continue my training with Phil.

CCR Try Dive

I had a CCR try dive on an AP Rebreather with Phil Grigg Technical Diving. Phil explained the basic concepts of a rebreather and then explained what all the components did. After a very informative session and all questions answered we then proceeded with the dive. Phil was very patient and explained exactly what was going to happen in the water and the differences to expect that differed from open circuit.

The whole experience was very worthwhile and informative and a must if you are thinking of following this diving path. Phil is very informative, patient and knowledgeable and I would wholeheartedly recommend him for any of your technical diving requirements.

A real confidence boost

I did my MOD 2 sentinel CCR with Phil. A well organised and informative course from beginning to end. Phil took a nervous student and turned him into a confident and informed diver. He passed on many tips and tricks. its only on reflection after the course do I understand how much I had learnt. This knowledge has been put to good use and I am now regularly diving to depth, confident that I can handle any challenges thrown at me........Cheers Phil

IANTD - Advanced Recreational Trimix Course

Phil Grigg is one of the most professional and approachable instructors I have had the pleasure to be taught by. His knowledge is vast, not only about the course, but with all aspects of technical diving. Any questions we had were answered very thoroughly, yet in a way easy to understand. His diving skills are excellent, especially his shutdown demos, which he performs with such ease. To top it all, he's a genuinely nice bloke, and easy to get on with. I would definitely look to Phil for my future training with IANTD.

IANTD Advanced Recreational Trimix

The IANTD Advanced Recreation Trimix ran by Phil Grigg Technical Diving was extremely helpful and covered a large range of subjects to ensure all aspects of the course were understand by all participating divers.

As well as completing the course with Phil Grigg Technical Diving, Phil has also answered any questions regarding kit selection both prior to and following course completion which is obviously a great help when just starting out on the technical diving route.

IANTD CCR Normoxic Trimix Training

After doing my initial IANTD CCR training with Phil there was no doubt that I would go back to him to do the IANTD Normoxic Trimix course with him.
Phil is a very experienced diver with a great depth of theoretical knowledge and more importantly enthusiasm that he brings to the training. I have recommended to my friends that they should go to Phil Grigg to further their own diver training whether it be open circuit or closed circuit rebreather.

rebreather try dive

Had a re breather try dive with Phil at Stoney cove in Feb 2015
Phil was knowledgeable and informative about the concept of re breather diving. We had a briefing about how re breathers worked and the make up of the system we were to use for the dive. The pre dive checks were done under supervision and once completed we dropped into the water. Bail out cylinder fitted, weight checked we headed for the 6 metre training platform to practice some bail out skills, once completed the dive started. We were under for about 60mins which with a low water temp was enough. Through out the skills and dive
Phil was close by all the time and did make a video of the dive.

A safe experience trying something new

I went to Phil based on a recommendation from a friend and I took a CCR try dive on an AP Inspiration Vision rebreather. The briefing was detailed and Phil made sure I was comfortable with the kit and knew what to do with it. He set my expectations as to how it would work, what I would need to do and what he would be doing. There were no issues on the surface. Phil made it clear up-front that the goal was for me to get a good feel for CCR diving and that while we would run some skill drills, the focus of the session would be just having a dive and getting used to the kit. That was good to know. Phil explained the skill drills well and ran me through them to check I understood. Then we kitted up.

In the water Phil was in constant contact and I felt well looked after. He ran me through the skills and drills and then we went for a dive. He is confident in the water and that inspired confidence in me with new kit.

I had a good dive, got plenty of time on the kit to get a feel for it and how it all works and was happy at the end of it.

An Excellant look into Rebreather World

What an amazing day provided by Phil. Myself and Jason Shakespear decided to try Phils rebreather try dive .His description of all the kit was 1st class.
His safety is second to none and passes this on to you in a very easy way to understand.
The actual dive was brilliant with Phil being very patient in the water .
I would like to say that if anyone wants to try the rebreather experience then Phil is the guy to use, he made us feel very safe and comfortable
