UTRtek Uk Ltd anticipated a lot of the world didactics; moreover it has the knowledge and consequently the capacity of providing the most evolved and modern entrainment programs.
However, knowledge is not enough to form optimal divers, it needs to be supported by high level programs. Professional underwater instructors, with over a decade of work experience, highly thought in the divers’ communities, constitute the Technical Committee.
They form and oversee the entire didactic programs starting from the schedules, continuing with exercises, practical and theoretical exams, ending in writing manuals, interactive and multimedia didactic supports. UTRtek means Underwater Technical research of underwater entrainment. The word Technical implies researching aim and teaching techniques development, intended to divers’ formation.
Research entails challenges and awareness. It’s possible to “reach” the perfection just passing through a continuous changing process, with the awareness that perfection is an utopia.
UTRtek knows that nowadays competitive items could be obsolete in the early future; this implies no-stop research need. When beginner students meets the scuba world for the first time, are not able to recognise the differences between several methods and didactics. As you do, they are just desire to learn how to dive and longing for discover the amazing underwater world.
Obviously, they can’t know which are the differences between the didactics’ background.
After few time, each student will became capable to evaluate by himself this differences and he/she will be proud to possess an UTRtek / Underwater Technical Research scuba-certification.
