Technical Diving : The First Steps

If you are an Open Water Diver with over 50 dives and Nitrox or an Advanced Open Water diver and you feel like there is more out there?

Most people think Technical Diving is dangerous, but to be honest compared to recreational levels tech diving could be more safe. Why?

  1. You will always have double the amount of breathing gas,
  2. You will always carry a redundancy of equipment like a 2nd mask, cutting device, computer and regulators
  3. You will learn how to safely ascent with the correct equipment (SMB and Spool) from 18 meters and up
  4. You will learn more about the diving Physics and Physiology
  5. You will learn more rescue skills
  6. You will learn more skills than in any recreational diving level
  7. You will also learn what it means when your Dive Computer goes into Decompression mode and how to ascent safely doing deco stops and how to actually handle deco stops by calculations and not only depending on your dive computer.

While there are many agencies you can take your Tec Diving journey forward with; we support TDI (Technical Diving International)

Below are two charts, the first outlines the various course options available and the respective links you can check for the prerequisites required for each course.

Remember, the very basic first step is a basic Nitrox course from any agency.

Note: At this time we do not cover Rebreather, overhead (cave), service or professional tec courses.

If you are not entirely sure whether Tec Diving is for you, the Intro to Tech course will help you make up your mind and also let the instructor judge your current comfort level to guide you on how to proceed further.
