The TDI Decompression Procedures Course in Thailand
Technical divers experience the art and sill of decompression diving in South East Asia.
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the graduation of Etienne De Beer from his TDI Decompression Procedures Course conducted over 3 days with 4 dives by TDI Instructor James Thornton-Allan off the coast of Thailand on Koh Tao Island.
The TDI Decompression Procedures Course takes the previously certified TDI Advanced Nitrox Diver and provides training for planned and staged decompression diving where the use of multiple oxygen based gasses provide an accelerated exit from depths up to 45m.
The course also provides more advanced familiarization with technical diving equipment, methods and skills including buoyancy, trim and control.
During the course the conditions were challenging and with limited visibility this provided great training grounds for becoming a comfortable and qualified technical diver. Working on the motto “Train Hard, Dive Easy” Etienne certainly covered the “Train Hard” aspect in many ways.
As a final treat Etienne was introduced to technical wreck diving with a shallow and limited penetration on our local house wreck off the shore of Koh Tao.
