As with the stepped philosophy that TDI training programmes implement, the Extended Range Technical Diver course serves to build on prior knowledge and skills to enhance your diving capabilities and leaves you qualified to take on more challenging and adventurous dives.
The Extended Range course will reinforce much of what has previously been learned, but will go into greater depth as well as introducing new concepts and ideas.
The course will provide 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 of the Extended Range programme is to train divers in the proper techniques, equipment requirements and hazards of deep air diving to this depth.
55 meters maximum using air as backgas.
Utilising up to 100% oxygen for accelerated decompression.
The Extended Range course is performance based.
The technical diver training, provided by ScubaQuest, will certify students to the recognised international standards provided by Technical Diving International (TDI).
The course is completed over three days with a minimum of four dives below the depth of 30m, two of which will be below 40m with a minimum accumulated bottom time of 100 minutes.
Due to the nature of the course a flexible and personalised approach to the schedule will be applied based on the previous experience and pace of the student.
Technical Courses by their very nature require a tailored approach and in some cases the need to have a minimum number of students participating to make the course an effective learning experience. Technical courses will be scheduled based on demand and customer requirements.
