Ian France

Country of residence:
UK

Certifications:
IANTD Instructor Trainer, Trimix, CCR & Advanced Cave Instructor

Type of diving:
A passionate full time technical diving educator, specialising in Mine, Cave and Trimix, with a wealth of experience in all kit configurations, OC and CCR. A regular instructor at Tekcamp, fundamental in the UKMC (www.ukmine-cave.com), and when not teaching - a very active diver exploring caves, mines, and the ocean. What really motivates me is the desire to pass on my experience and knowledge to students so that they too can discover the intrigue and delights of the underwater world and I believe that the wrecks, caves and unexplored areas of the world are accessible to all divers with the correct training, equipment and knowledge.

Best diving experience:
Exploring the caves of France, the flooded mines of the UK, and the potential of the Azores to become a new tek diving location.

Playground:
Ian runs technical/cave courses both here in the UK, Azores, France, Florida, Spain, Malta and Mexico.

Numbers of dives per year:
Most days, if not in the classroom...
