TDI Advanced Nitrox

[/box] Course Overview
Over two days you will lean about using nitrox mixes from 22% to 100% covering in more detail and developing on from your basic nitrox theory. The course is an ideal first step for preparing to move forward in technical diving, cave and advanced wreck. Or simply to add to your recreational diving options.
What’s Involved
There will be 4 nitrox dives with a minimum of 100 minutes of bottom time. You will build on diving skills to date. You will learn about nitrox blending, best mixes, managing oxygen exposure and gas consumption calculations.
Course Skills
Efficient and safe utilisation of nitrox mixes up to 100%. Buoyancy and trim, propulsion techniques, cylinder and stage set-up and rigging, gas management, thinking like a  technical diver.
Why Do the Course?
This course will appeal to experienced recreational divers who are now seeking to move into the technical diving world or to add options to their longer or deeper recreational dives. It prepares you to take further technical training such as decompression procedures or tec 40/45/50 courses. Options to combine this course with decompression procedures are available.
What’s Included
The course fee covers instructional time, manual, use of facilities including pool. Students are expected to pay any boat costs and accomodation costs required to complete the course but we do have packages available. Only after the successful completion of the course do you pay your certification fee – “you pay for training – you earn the certification”
What You Need
Standard scuba equipment plus a spare mask, timing device, a dsmb, a spool/reel with 30m of line. A backmount twinset or sidemount BCD, we recommend Apeks, Razor and X-Deep systems. These may be rented for the duration of the course.

  • Demonstrate adequate buoyancy control; ability to hover at a fixed position in water column without moving hands or feet
  • Demonstrate adequate trim; ability to maintain proper position during the descent, bottom, and ascent portion of the dive
  • Perform the following exercises maintaining trim and buoyancy:
    • Unclipping and attaching sidemount cylinders
    • Perform gas switches with and without a mask
    • Demonstrate the ability to safely manage gas in independent cylinders
    • Demonstrate conservation, awareness, and back referencing techniques

TDI / SDI Solo Diver

[/box] As experienced divers we usually prefer to dive with our peers, team mates or buddies who we know can help us out in a crisis. When we dive with others though, students or unknowns, we are not only really diving solo, but we are also potentially diving solo with a dependent. THE TDI/SDI solo diver course is the only true solo diving course that qualifies you to dive alone, but equips you with the skills and knwoledge to dive safely with others who may be an unknown qualitity or reliant on you. Photographers this is definitely for you!
What’s Involved
There will be at least 2 dives and you will build on diving skills and knowledge to date. You will learn about dive planning, equipment considerations and develop buoyancy, trim and dive planning skills to safely carry out a solo dive as well as learn how to be a great self reliant team member
Course Skills
Dive planning. Buoyancy and trim, propulsion techniques, backup cylinder and stage set-up and rigging, gas management, thinking like a solo diver, handling emergencies and failures.
Why Do the Course?
This course will suit experienced recreational divers and budding technical divers. It opens up the ability to dive solo and adds additional knowledge and skills to your buddy team diving. It prepares you to take further technical training if desired.
What’s Included
The course fee covers instructional time, manual, use of facilities including pool. Students are expected to pay any gas, boat costs and accomodation costs required to complete the course but we do have packages available.

TDI Advanced Wreck

[/box] Course Overview
In the TDI Advanced Wreck course over a minimum of four days and six overhead penetration dives you will learn the skills and knowledge to safely take your wreck diving to the next level. You will be able to plan dives beyond the natural light zone into the depths of the wreck safely self managing in an overhead environment, navigating hazards, navigation challenges, line work and gas management.
What’s Involved
The course is performance based so may take longer than four days. You will do at least six dives which will significantly exceed the minimum of 100 minutes required. You will dive wrecks within the current limit of your qualification to a maximum depth of 55m.
Course Skills
Wreck assessment and safe entry, navigation and line laying protocols and skills, gas planning and management, emergency procedures, planning, stage management, teamwork and stress management
Why Do the Course?
This course will appeal to experienced wreck divers who are now seeking to move into the technical overhead environment. If you have always wanted to ‘go inside’ then this course will equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to do so.
What’s Included
The course fee covers instructional time, manual, use of facilities including pool. Students are expected to pay any boat costs and accomodation costs required to complete the course but we do have packages available. Only after the successful completion of the course do you pay your certification fee – “you pay for training – you earn the certification”
What You Need
Technical scuba equipment plus a spare mask, timing device, a dsmb, a main real plus a safety spool/reel with 30m of line. A backmount twinset or sidemount BCD, we recommend Apeks, Razor and X-Deep systems. These may be rented for the duration of the course.
