Technical Diving Philosophy
Technical diving carries with it potentially higher risks than recreational diving (diving in overhead environments, decompression obligations, and higher physical and physiological demands), and consequences of mistakes can be more severe. Higher risk however does not mean more dangerous. Through thorough training both in the classroom and in water, knowledge and skills are learnt and practiced to make the newly certified technical diver as safe (if not safer) as a recreational diver. Once trained it is then the responsibility of the technical diver to develop a positive and responsible attitude to diving safely within the limits of his/her training level and seek to progress to higher skill levels through continuing education and regular practice of existing skills and knowledge.
TDI: Technical Diving International,
TDI is the largest technical certification agency in the world. TDI’s professionals are held to the highest standard to ensure quality training throughout the world. This means that as a diver taking a TDI course, your instructor will have documented his experience and knowledge prior to achieving that rating. As an instructor candidate taking a TDI course, your TDI instructor trainer will have gone through the paces to achieve the highest level of training that TDI offers.TDI is committed to offering the highest quality training supported by the latest materials with the most up to date information and techniques. TDI’s materials are written by authors that acutely conduct the type of diving they are writing about. Those same materials are update as technology and equipment change.
IANTD: International Association of Nitrox and Technical Divers,
IANTD is the only EANx agency that offers training in all aspects of EANx through continuing education programs. This allows you to expand your knowledge and training with the top professionals in the field. IANTD instructors are well trained, highly experienced and extremely qualified. IANTD Standards and Procedures provide for the highest level of EANx education and training available. IANTD (IAND, Inc.) was founded by Dick Rutkowski, the former dive supervisor for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Mr. Rutkowski introduced the recreational diving community to the technology of EANx. This program was developed through NOAA during his tenure. Today the board of directors and the membership of IANTD are composed of many of the most experienced divers in the world pertaining to the use of breathing gases other than air.
