Apnea Total's operation is small, probably never more than 20 people in a day, but still manages highest standards due to expereinced freedivers teaching the course. The team acheives a balance between classroom and practice. Safety is stressed at all turns, the technique is based on yoga, however even if you are not "into" yoga the breathing excersises make the technique of streching of chest, lungs and diaphragm intuitive. AP makes you push your limits without feeling the usual pain of pushing yourself. You are helped to bring yourself to the limit, but also to make sure you don't go beyond this limit.
The only scope for improvement I can think of would be to find a dive site with "something to see", which there are many of around Koh Tao. The classroom to sea transistion could also be handled more efficiently, seems to take forever at midday heat for everyone to find their fins and suits - perhaps have students pick out the kit before the start of the day? Getting from classroom to sea below 1h+ should be easy.
