Diving Talks - The Human Diver
Helping the industry apply human factors to sports, military, scientific and media diving, leading to fewer errors and greater safety
Human and Organisational Performance
The big picture! Human error. Blame. Impact of context. Leadership and how their response matters. Learning to make improvements. Start a learning journey to make a big difference by viewing things differently.
Human Factors and Non-Technical Skills

What people say about The Human Diver education programmes
Paul Toomer, Dive RAID
The course embraces a culture of discovery rather than blame...this course has opened my eyes even further. Essentials is valid for every diver, no matter whether that be an Open water Diver or a Trimix Rebreather Cave Instructor Trainer. Since completing the course, our agency has fully endorsed this program to all our divers, professionals and dive centres.
This course is of high value to individuals aiming at completing technical diving training. This will emphasis key factors to increase awareness on accident-related topics and will definitely put you on the path to becoming a better thinking diver.
That class was by far the best i have taken in a while. Brings you a bit back down to earth and let´s you start thinking about your behaviour during diving and classes. Recommend this for any diver, no matter if an Instructor or diver.
It will shake the way you think about diving safety, where human behaviours are more complex than just "near calls" or "dumb divers"
Jason Cook, GUE Instructor
The two day in-person training provided an opportunity for a disparate group of divers to form a team and take on challenging tasks while receiving feedback in real-time...I found this training to be among the most excellent I've partaken in...I would recommend this training not only to divers, but to anyone in possession of a brain who would like to work effectively with other people!
Lisa Frew, RAID Instructor
An eye-opening course, highlighting just how easy it is to get stuck in a rut and doing the same things. The importance of the dive community as a whole shifting its mindset to a more inclusive, open-minded, non-judgemental, non-assuming culture to improve safety for all.
Enrique Via-Reque, SDI Instructor
I've said it before and I'll keep saying it because it's true. This course not only changed my perspectives in diving but on life in general. Its applications go well beyond diving but when highlighted in that field will make you a smarter, safer overall better Diver... best course I've taken in diving as well as personal improvement ...
Mauritius Bell, DSO CAoS
The fact that a seasoned full-time occupational dive safety team responsible for a dive program involving incredibly challenging, complex, and diverse operations gleaned as many insights as we did, I can only imagine the benefit to those who engage in non-working or recreational (including technical divers) diving. This program should be incorporated into all levels of diving instruction--from open water to technical examiner/course director.
