TDI Decompression Procedures
As recreational 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.
What you will learn:
• Doubles or Sidemount equipment set-up
• Equipment requirements
• Decompression techniques
• Decompression breathing gases
• Gas management
• Contingency planning
The TDI Decompressions Procedures course combined with the TDI Advanced Nitrox course to form the foundation of all other technical courses. After these two courses and some additional experience, the stage has been set for you to move onto additional technical levels. Some of the materials you will be using include the TDI Divers Guide to Decompression Procedures, US Navy or Buhlmann Air Decompression Tables as well as computer decompression planning software.
• Be a PADI Open Water Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)
• Have a minimum of 25 logged dives
Course Duration: 4 Days (4 Dives)
