The TDI Intro to Tec program is to provide divers with a workshop environment to improve their skills to a high level using technical dive gear set ups and procedures.

This course teaches the very basics of technical diving skills, including proper twinset use, finning techniques, SMB deployment, and trim. Gear workshops polish your equipment set up and help you make decisions on which gear might be suitable for you for your future adventures.

It’s simply the perfect course for the absolute novice wondering about advanced diving.

Conducted over the course of two days, the program is the perfect transition for those people looking to move into further extended range training, or just simply wish to learn and hone new skills to become a better diver using twin tanks. You’ll learn the technical diver community-accepted standard skills in a relaxed environment.

  • SDI Open Water Diver (PADI / SSI / Other agencies are perfectly fine)
  • Have logged at least 24 dives.

Cost & gear needed

The course costs $650 with a $300 deposit on the day of booking.

All technical diving gear is provided. Students should have their own mask, fins & exposure suit appropriate to pool training. We recommend using the suit that you use in the ocean so weighting requirements approximate real world diving.
