The TDI Intro to Technical Diving course is the perfect course for divers who have heard about technical diving and want to find out more about this exciting branch of advanced recreational diving. This course walks students through the special techniques, planning procedures and skills that set technical diving apart from traditional sport diving.

The specific skills this course will highlight are:
• Advanced Buoyancy Control
• Gas Management

TDI’s Intro to Tec course is a useful stand-alone course for the diver who wants to become a more skilled, more proficient diver regardless of if he intends to move on to technical diving.
