Martin Robson – began his rebreather diving career in the military some years ago and has since gone on to become one of the most experienced Tec, Rebreather and Cave Diving Instructor Trainers in the world. He was the first ever IANTD CCR Cave Instructor Trainer and regularly conducts major wreck and cave diving expeditions around the world. As well as teaching for most of the major training agencies, Martin was one of the expert reviewers during the development process of the new PADI rebreather courses, and was proud to be asked to run the launch of the new programs for them.
Martin has also worked for UNESCO, with the Maritime Archaeology Department, recovering rare artifacts from previously un-dived wrecks as deep as 180 meters where recovery is too delicate for an ROV.
