Why should I take this course?
Ever wonder what it would be like to take your diving skills to the next level? Ever see the divers messing around with their “doubles” and wonder what it would be like to dive with those on your back? Have you ever thought that technical diving might just take the fun out of diving, but you want to give it a try anyway without the financial or time commitments usually associated to technical diving?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then TDI’s Intro to Tech is the class in which you you need to enroll. This is the perfect course for divers who have heard about technical diving and want to find out more about this exciting branch of advanced recreational diving. This course walks students through the special techniques, planning procedures and skills that set technical diving apart from traditional sport diving. It will show them how to improve their dive planning methods, in-water skills and streamline their existing gear configuration, in a non-threatening and fun learning environment. The specific skills this course will highlight are:
- Advanced Buoyancy Control
- Gas Management
- Situational Awareness
- Gear Configuration and Selection
- Many More!
TDI’s Intro to Tech course is a useful stand-alone course for the diver who wants to become a more skilled, more proficient diver, regardless of if he intends to move on to technical diving. The course may also be used as an introduction to the TDI Advanced Nitrox course and the TDI Decompression Procedures course. Intro to Tech is strictly a no-decompression course; students are permitted to use enriched air nitrox (EAN) mixes, provided the gas mix is within their current level of certification. And finally, it is also a good refresher for certified technical divers who may want to refresh their skills or have them re-evaluated by a TDI technical instructor.
Don’t wait any longer…take the Intro to Tech course and start your new adventure into the realm of technical diving as an informed diver who is able to make the right choices for your continuing training in technical diving.
