Born in England but living in Indonesia for the past 23 years, Simon Liddiard has been an active dive instructor since 1986, an active technical instructor since 1992, and began specialising in CCR training in 1998. He is an IANTD Instructor Trainer at Trimix level, both open and closed circuit. Simon is a member of the IANTD Board of Advisors, a TDI Trimix Instructor Trainer, a PADI course director and DSAT Trimix Instructor Trainer. Simon is one of only 2 JJ-CCR Advanced Mixed Gas Instructors in Indonesia.
Simon has extensive personal CCR diving experience and has logged over 150 Trimix CCR dives beyond 100m. He did the first ever solo deep Trimix rebreather dive to a depth of 150m in 2002. Simon offers the most experienced JJ-CCR training in Asia along with Will Goodman.
Simon Liddiard is a true pioneer of technical diving, particularly in SE Asia. Simon has the luxury of teaching deep Trimix CCR for his personal enjoyment and not for income. In his own words: “My only goal is to make each CCR diver the best they can be no matter how long it takes.”
