He is a CD who is also an active instructor of student level courses, which we believe is very important for instructor development.

Underwater Photographer

Miha is a keen underwater photographer, teaching photography and underwater photography courses, with notable results from regional photo competitions and contests. As the underwater environment can create unique circumstances such as changes in lighting or animal behavior, it's important for underwater photographers to have skills like quick decision making and patience which are essential in teaching diving too.

Experienced Tec and Sidemount Instructor

Miha has been doing technical and cave diving since 2003. Today he is also certified as tec trimix instructor trainer and tec sidemount instructor trainer offering a full range of tec courses too. On top of that he became one of few official Razor instructors in July 2013 and cavern instructor trainer in March 2014. At present Miha has over 4.000 documented logged dives and diving experience in Maldives, Egypt, Caribbean, Malaysia, Indonesia, Mexico, Mediterranean and European lakes, rivers and caves.

With an extensive experience in teaching and training divers and diving instructors he tries to make sure that the courses are interesting and exciting for every candidate. His broad knowledge, a good sense of humour and easy going personality (some might argue) will put you at ease in no time making your time during the course a memorable experience.
