 TECHNICAL DIVING COURSES

 
 We offer a full curriculum of technical diving courses in association with Technical Diving International. All courses follow a “DIR” approach. Click here for required equipment and general information on our technical diving courses.

TDI Nitrox Diver - This entry level course is available to all divers who wish to explore the many advantages of Nitrox diving and begin to expand their horizons. The qualification allows the diver the use of Nitrox from 22% to 40%. The half day course covers the history of Nitrox, its advantages, and disadvantages, oxygen toxicity, equivalent air depths, maximum operating depths, nitrox computers and gas analysis. We provide manuals etc. No dives are involved unless you request them and all that is required by you is a calculator and some common sense. Includes: TDI Nitrox manual & certification.  Prerequisites: Open water diver or equivalent, minimum 15 years of age.  Cost: $125.00

Basic Nitrox with 2 supervised dives: $175.00

  TDI Advanced Nitrox Diver - This two day course, includes 4 nitrox dives (100 minutes bottom time) and covers all the topics in the nitrox course in much greater detail, with in-depth coverage of CNS & whole body oxygen toxicity and tracking, common mixing methods, best mix computations, decompression gas, accelerated decompression, dive planning, gas consumption calculations and equipment considerations, all culminating in certification to use 22% - 100% (oxygen) as a breathing gas.  Includes: TDI Advanced Nitrox manual & certification.  Prerequisites: Nitrox diver or equivalent, 25 logged dives, minimum 15 years of age. Cost: $700.00  

 

TDI Combined Basic & Advanced Nitrox Diver - This course includes both of the above courses in one go. It is more intensive, but more efficient. It includes 8 nitrox dives (100 minutes bottom time) and covers all the topics in Nitrox in great detail, all culminating in certification to use 22% - 100% (oxygen) as a breathing gas.  Includes: TDI Basic & Advanced Nitrox manual & certification.  Prerequisites: Advanced open water diver or equivalent, 25 logged dives, minimum 15 years of age.  Cost: $800.00

 
 TDI Decompression Procedures Diver - This two day course examines the theory, methods and procedures of planned decompression diving, including 4 dives. The program is designed as a stand-alone course or it may be taught in conjunction with TDI courses such as Advanced Nitrox Course, Advanced Wreck Course, or Extended Range Course. The objective of this course is to train divers how to plan and conduct a standard staged decompression dive not exceeding a maximum depth of 150 fsw (unless taught in conjunction with the Extended Range Course). The most common equipment requirements, gear set-up, and decompression techniques are presented, using nitrox or oxygen mixes within the divers existing qualification. Includes: TDI Decompression Procedures manual & certification.  Prerequisites: Advanced open water diver or equivalent, 25 logged dives, minimum 18 years of age. Cost: $900.00  

TDI Combined Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures Diver - This three day course includes both the Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures courses. It is more intensive, but more efficient. It includes 8 nitrox dives and covers all the topics required to use mixtures from 40% to 100% (oxygen) for decompression as well as the ability to perform accelerated decompression.  Includes: TDI Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures manual & certification. Prerequisites: Advanced open water diver or equivalent, TDI Basic Nitrox or equivalent, 50 logged dives, minimum 18 years of age.  Cost: $1500.00

 

TDI Advanced Wreck Diver - This four day course provides training and experience to competently conduct advanced wreck dives. This program includes penetration skills and techniques. Depths will not exceed the level in which the diver is trained and competent, but in no case will the maximum depth in this program exceed 180 fsw. The objective of this course is to train divers in the proper techniques, equipment requirements and hazards of wreck diving.  Includes: TDI Advanced Wreck manual & certification.  Cost: $900.00

 
TDI Extended Range Diver & Trimix - Again a comprehensive seven day course, with 100 minutes bottom time required to qualify. The course concentrates on the proper techniques, equipment requirements, and hazards of deep ocean diving (180 fsw maximum) utilizing nitrox and oxygen for accelerated decompression. The course places a great deal of emphasis on personal and team limits, shut down procedures, gas switching, SMB deployment and contingency planning etc.  Includes: TDI Extended Range / Trimix manual & certification.  Prerequisites: Advanced Nitrox Diver and Decompression Procedures Diver or equivalent, 100 logged dives, of which 25 must be deeper than 99 fsw. Minimum 18 years of age.  Cost: $1,500.00 ($1,200.00 in conjunction with any other TDI course except Advanced Trimix)
TDI Advanced Trimix - This seven day course provides the training required to competently and safely utilize breathing gases containing helium for dives that require staged decompression, utilizing Nitrox and / or oxygen mixtures during decompression to a maximum depth of 300 fsw. The objective of this course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures of utilizing custom oxygen / helium / nitrogen mixtures as breathing gases.  Includes: TDI Advanced Trimix manual & certification.  Prerequisites: Extended Range Diver or equivalent, 100 logged dives, of which 50 must be deeper than 100 fsw. Minimum 18 years of age. Cost: $2000.00 plus dives from a vessel other than the Sea Eagle.

TDI Gas Blender- This half-day course provides students the knowledge necessary for nitrox gas blending, a basic requirement if you are looking to blend nitrox in a club environment or if you're looking for work in the diving industry.  Includes: TDI Gas Blender manual & certification.  Prerequisites: Minimum 18 years of age. Cost: $200.00

TDI Advanced Gas Blender - This one day course trains students both as a nitrox blender and an advanced gas blender which includes use of nitrox and trimix and Haskel pumps etc. This half day course teaches students the knowledge necessary for nitrox gas blending, a basic requirement if you are looking to blend nitrox in a club environment or if you're looking for work in the diving industry.  Includes: TDI Advanced Gas Blender manual & certification.  Prerequisites: Minimum 18 years of age.  Cost: $350.00
