Lots of people fly but very few are fast jet pilots. Many people dive, but again, very few venture into the world of technical diving.
Whether your want is deep wreck diving, deep wildlife diving, cave/cavern or mine diving, open circuit or closed circuit rebreathers, invariably depth will become a consideration as will the associated planning needed to undertake this type of diving.
Here at ScubaQuest our approach to teaching technical diving is one where we organise courses to fit with the student's schedule so that they get the most out of the course.
In technical diving the learning experience is greatly enhanced when a team of students can be coordinated.
Taking this into account there is always a discussion with our students to ensure there is a good fit with their own schedule and getting the most from the course.
ScubaQuest Technical Diving Courses
TDI online e-learning
All of the ScubaQuest technical diving courses are delivered utilising TDI online e-learning theory packages. Experience has shown that the majority of students find this approach is better suited to their individual learning needs being more flexible, easier to align with their available time and the pace of their learning.
The e-learning packages are specifically developed to track progress and allow your instructor to identify areas for further discussion during the classroom reviews before the practical elements of the course begin. Traditional classroom based theory is also offered when e-learning is not possible or suitable. Please discuss these options with your instructor at the time of booking.
If you are interested in technical diving then please take a look at the technical diving courses we offer and get in touch for a discussion.
We are sure we can meet your expectations and deliver a technical diving experience that matches your ambitions and allows you to reach your next diving goals.
Introduction to Technical Diving (TDI)
Ever wondered why people jump into the water with so much complicated looking kit? Why do they do it? Where are they going? How do they manage it?
The objective of this course is to answer these questions and familiarise you with technical scuba diving equipment configurations.
Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures (TDI)
The foundation course in technical diving, examining the theory, methods, and procedures of planned staged decompression diving. The course objective is to train divers how to plan and conduct a standard staged decompression dive not exceeding a maximum depth of 45m using staged nitrox up to 100% to accelerate the decompression.
TDI Advanced Nitrox & Helitrox (TDI)
This course is similar in nature to the Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures course but utilising Enriched Air Nitrox & Helium mixtures. This allows divers to dive to depth, but without the full impediment of narcosis. There are also some additional equipment configurations and additional theory components to this course.
Extended Range (TDI)
This course builds on prior knowledge and skills; providing divers the training and experience required to competently utilise air for dives down to a maximum of 55 meters, with staged decompression utilising up to 100% oxygen. The objective is to train divers in the proper techniques, equipment requirements and hazards of deep air diving to this depth.
Trimix Diver (TDI)
One of the limiting factors of diving deeper is gas narcosis.
TDI’s Trimix Diver course shows you how to minimise the effects of gas narcosis by using helium in place of a percentage of the nitrogen in your breathing gas.
CCR Air Diluent Diver (TDI)
An entry-level Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) course that will take you safely into the world of silent diving!
The focus of this course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for diving a CCR and to develop core CCR diving skills to a maximum depth of 30 metres, using air as a diluent.
CCR Air Diluent Decompression Procedures (TDI)
This is the certification course for divers wishing to utilise a Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) for air diving. The objective of the course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for diving a CCR and to develop core CCR diving skills to a maximum depth of 45 metres, using air as a diluent for formal decompression diving.
TDI CCR Helitrox Decompression Procedures (TDI)
The 2nd entry-level certification course for divers wishing to utilise
a Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) for mixed gas diving using a Helitrox diluent. The objective is teach the benefits, hazards and procedures for diving a CCR and to develop basic CCR diving skills, to a maximum of 45m, using an air/ nitrox/ helium diluent for formal decompression diving.
Technical Diving Crossovers (TDI)
Technical diving crossover and upgrade courses to TDI Helitrox and TDI Closed Circuit Rebreather Helitrox from other TDI qualifications or equivalent from other diving agencies recognised by TDI
Note: All technical diving courses are assessed on the basis of student performance. For the relevant Standards & Procedures, please see the individual Technical Diving Course pages.
TDI Technical Diving Journey
The technical diver training, provided by ScubaQuest, will certify students to the recognised international standards provided by Technical Diving International (TDI).
ScubaQuest follows both Technical Diving International (TDI) standards & procedures and Rebreather Education Safety Association (RESA) standards to ensure our Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) courses are as comprehensive and safe as possible.
ScubaQuest is a SDI/TDI 5 Star Professional Development Centre.
