 PLANNED COURSES

 TDI INTRODUCTION TO TECHNICAL DIVING

Two day course. Intro to Tech is intended to give experienced sport divers a simple, non-threatening glimpse at the techniques and skills used in technical diving.  Participating in this course will give those divers a better understanding of the detailed planning and preparation required to make a successful and safe technical dive. Intro to Tech is really a “try it before you buy it” course for someone interested in tech and is also worthwhile for all divers because the skills it focuses on – gas management, superior buoyancy and trim, situational awareness, and equipment selection – are useful in any form of diving.
