TDI Intro to Tech

The past few years has seen a huge growth in the popularity of technical diving.... Have you ever wondered why these people jump into the water with so much kit? What do they need it for? Where are they going? How do they manage it?

Well, the Into to Tech is designed to give you an insight into some of these questions, and find out what the buzz is all about!

Why TDI Intro to Tech?

The TDI Intro to Tech course introduces students to the world of technical diving. This course is designed as an introductory course to the TDI Advanced Nitrox course and the TDI Decompression Procedures Course.

The objective of this course is to familiarize students with technical equipment configurations, to enhance open water diving skills (such as buoyancy, trim, and situational awareness), and to introduce students to advanced gas planning techniques within a no-decompression context.

This course 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.

Intro to Tech may be combined with TDI Advanced Nitrox at the discretion of the instructor.
