TDI's Technical Introductory Diving Course exposes you to a world of technical diving. This course is intended as an introductory course for advanced Nitrox course and decompression diving course
The purpose of the course is to introduce the students to technical equipment configurations, improve your skills in open water dives such as buoyancy, emergency procedures, and situational awareness. Expose students to advanced gas design techniques in the context of decompression. Dive Course - This technical introduction is intended for non-decompression dives, and students may use Nitrox oxygen-enriched air mixtures that are within their current qualification level. Dive Course - Technical introduction may be combined with the Advanced Nitrox of TDI at the discretion of the instructor.
The following is a diving course array - technical introduction:
With the successful completion of a diving course - technical introduction, students can engage in diving activities in the form of technical equipment without the direct supervision of an instructor, provided that: The diving activities are similar to those of the training. Areas of activity and environmental conditions are similar to those of training. Prerequisites for acceptance to the diving course Technical introduction: Minimum age 18, 15 with parental consent. A minimal qualification of 2 stars (advanced adventure). Provide proof of 25 open water dives recorded in the dive log. The structure of the course: Minimum of 3 Dives Open Water Required! All dives must be carried out at depths within the current qualification level of the diver, but not exceeding 23 meters.
The following are the topics of the technical diving course.
Physics. Underwater pressure review. Physiology. Submerges / proper submerges. Hyperthermia. Hypothermia. Psychological Aspects. Considerations of equipment. Single / double tank. Tank valves options. Options of regulators. Harnesses / buoyancy balancing systems options. Computer, time and depth, depth gauge options. Buoyancy bags / buoyancy bags for marking spaces. Dive planning. Tables / Planning using a dive computer and execution. Calculation of air consumption (SAC). Calculations of minimum gas reserves for non-decompression dives. Environmental considerations. Ways of entry / exit strategies. Emergency strategies in case of malfunction / gas loss.
At the end of the diving course, the students are required to successfully complete the following open water skills:
Selection and preparation of equipment. Team behavior. Laying and raising a buoy using a pulley. Matching the breathing mixture as a team. Designated hand marks. Perform adequate dive planning with team-based limits and personal gas consumption. Using of S.T.A.R.T. Before each dive. Stress analysis and their reduction. Check the correct weight. Demonstrate proper buoyancy control, the ability to hover at a fixed point in the water without moving your hands or feet. Ability to maintain a horizontal body during movement at the bottom and while merging out of the water. Perform movement in water using the frog kick method, frog backward movement. Demonstrate the ability to perform the following exercises while maintaining a constant floating point in the water: switching regulators. Finding a regulator. Full / partial mask emptying with minimal air loss. Remove mask and return it with minimal air loss. Demonstrate the ability to perform a safety exercise (S-exercise), while maintaining balanced at a fixed point in the water. Demonstrate the ability to deploy a buoy using a pulley while maintaining a balanced at a fixed point in the water. Demonstrate mature, sound related to diving planning and execution.
