To go deeper or stay down longer than recreational diving limits allow, then Decompression Procedures is the course you are looking for. Have more time to explore deep wrecks and reefs as well as learn more about basic technical diving gear.

Why take the TDI Decompression Procedures course?

As sport divers, planned decompression is not something that we do or have been taught. The TDI Decompression Procedures course prepares you for planned staged decompression diving. With a maximum operating depth of 45m/150 feet, this course is your first step beyond the normal sport diving limits. Combine this course with Advanced Nitrox in order to get the best benefit out of your decompression gases.

What’s involved in the course?

Your TDI Instructor will provide you with valuable information and skills, among the topics covered are kit set-up, equipment requirements, decompression techniques, decompression breathing gases, gas management and contingency planning. The TDI Decompression Procedures course combined with the TDI Advanced Nitrox course, form the foundation of all other technical courses. During the course you will do 4 dives unless combined with the Advanced Nitrox course in which case you will do 6.

Who can take the Decompression Procedures course?

To take the course you must be at least 18 years old, Advanced Open Water certified and have logged 25 or more dives.

Where does the course run?
