Me and a friend took the padi open water with andy @ scuba tech in early October and it turned out great very much thanks to andy. To start with we where a bit short on time, both me and my friend had a set date when it would be very good if the course was complete. Andy was very flexible, and was also open for a backup plan in case it would not work out.
It turned out that we lived quite close to each other in Manila, and we had several meetups in the evening discussing the theoretical stuff you need for the course. (all included in the package).
When it came to the practical parts we were very unlucky, a typhoon hit Subic just that weekend which meant the already constrained time was even more limited. Good thing it we could do pool dives even with a strong wind and heavy rain! (rained so bad during that day that our hotel room was flooded!). However, Andy kept up a positive and flexible mind and everything was possible to fit in. At the same time you could feel that he really wanted you to learn the stuff and keeping you safe, Im definitely sure you will be a safe diver after a course with andy.
I would recommend scuba tech for anyone that want to dive with a very experienced diver that take it seriously even if you are just doing the beginners course.
Note: I waited with this review until I had made a real dive so I knew how the contents of the course translated into real use. Now after I made a dive I can say that yes, you get a very good training with Andy @ suba tech.
