TDI Decompression Procedures
Over two days you will lean about the theory, skills and practical methods of carrying out safe staged decompression dives up to 45m deep. The course can run as a stand alone but is usually combined with advanced nitrox or extended range, though options to combine with wreck are also good.
There will be 4 dives and you will build on diving skills to date. You will learn about dive planning, equipment considerations and develop buoyancy, trim and teamwork skills to safely carry out planned decompression diving.
Buoyancy and trim, propulsion techniques, cylinder and stage set-up and rigging, gas management, thinking like a technical diver, handling emergencies and failures. Decompresison techniques
Why Do the Course?
This course will suit experienced recreational divers and budding technical divers. It opens up longer and safer deep dives whilst adding additional knowledge and skills to your diving. It prepares you to take further technical training such as extended range or trimix diving.
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.
