TDI Advanced Wreck
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.
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.
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.
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”
