Advanced Diver and Advanced Instructor Training
Why Learn to become a Technical Diver or Technical Instructor with Steve..?
Having become a Technical Diver myself shortly after becoming a Recreational Diver, I now have 6 years of "active" Technical Diving experience behind me and I understand better than most how to help you further develop into the technical field of diving. Who better to do your training than a PADI Course Director who is a DSAT Instructor Trainer - I offer training for all levels you do not have to be a technical diver or Instructor for me to start your training. See chart above for courses on offer...
Why do Technical Scuba Diving..?
Sometimes, the things you'd like to see underwater will be deeper than recreational diving can take you safely. And it's here that technical diving comes in. I recognize that technical diver training is distinct and separate from recreational diver training and that to properly train people for the challenges of the technical diving arena it needs the dedicated focus of a separate training system.
So what is Technical Diving..?
It's perhaps easier to define what isn't technical diving. Diving is, broadly speaking, categorized into recreational, military, commercial and technical. Military and commercial diving are relatively self-explanatory, so it's the often-blurry line between recreational and technical that we're concerned with.
Recreational diving is generally defined as diving within the 30 - 40m range in an open water (i.e. no roof!) environment where a direct ascent to the surface is possible, breathing a single gas for the entire dive, and conducting no decompression stops.
The Discover Tec and PADI Tec Basics Programme are still recreational programs essentially they straddles the line between technical and recreational diving; on the one side is the traditional recreational community and on the other side, the dedicated technical diving community. Technical diving is
not for everyone. Take a look at each programme above using the chart and see what they involve maybe it is for you...
