Technical Diver Training

Take your diving to the next level

TDI Intro To Tech

The Introduction to Technical Diving Course (Intro to Tech) is designed as a bridge from the recreational sport diver to an introduction to the rigors and discipline of technical diving, and is a great preparatory course if you are considering technical diver training or are interested in streamlining your equipment configuration.


This course is designed as an introductory course to the TDI Advanced Nitrox and the TDI Decompression Procedures courses. The objective of this course is to familiarize students

with technical gear 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 to the level they are certified.


The Intro to Tech course is your first step to a whole new world of technical diving! Course takes approximately 2 days: one classroom, 3 dives.

TDI Advanced Nitrox

Graduates are able to manage high-test nitrox (40% plus) including pure oxygen responsibly, paying attention to special equipment and component requirements, handling considerations, and cylinder markings.


They are able to grasp the concept and importance of Central Nervous System oxygen toxicity tracking (CNS clock) have the ability to calculate MOD’s without reference to tables for different ppO2 and FO2s; and have been introduced to the criteria for “advanced nitrox” equipment selection and configuration.


Course takes approximately 3 days: one classroom, 4-6 dives and can be combined with TDI’s Decompression Procedures.

TDI Decompression Procedures

Graduates are able to make informed decisions to undertake dives outside the NDLs (as per US Navy and DCIEM tables) and manage the increased risks associated with these dives based on best practice information, limitations of training, limitations of knowledge and “objective” assessment of personal limitations. They leave this class with a basic understanding of staged decompression practice (ascent behavior) and decompression theory.


They should understand the concept and constraints of staged decompression obligation; the use of multiple gases to optimize a decompression schedule; advanced equipment selection and clean gear configuration (since deco diving is overhead environment diving). In addition, they should be versed in basic contingency planning with particular focus on overhead gas management techniques.

Course takes approximately 3 days: one classroom, 4-6 dives and can be combined with TDI’s Advanced Nitrox.

TDI Advanced Wreck Diving

Graduates are able to conduct penetration dives (overhead environment dives) in wrecks using reels and lines with confidence, and have the ability to plan, execute and develop contingency plans for dives in marginal conditions -- poor visibility, harsh surface conditions, cold water and/or low visibility for example.


Graduates should also be able to recognize and use navigational landmarks on steel and wooden wrecks, and be confident deploying and surfacing on emergency ascent lines (fixed and drifting).


Course takes approximately 5 days: two classroom sessions, 8-10 dives.
