Intro to Technical Diving – Twin Set Course in Thailand
Diving instructor takes the leap into technical diving
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the graduation of Eric Vinik from his TDI Intro To Tech Course conducted over 2 days with 4 dives off the coast of Thailand on an island called Koh Tao taught by TDI Technical instructor Ash Dunn. Eric is a professional diving instructor who lives in Koh Samui which is a neighboring island and traveled to Koh Tao for this course.
TDI’s intro to tech course is designed to prepare divers for diving a double tank/cylinder configuration using proper equipment and techniques. In this class, students will be trained in the use of double tanks/cylinders and in the potential failure problems associated with them. The course includes a minimum of 6 hours of academics & land drills and a minimum of four in-water sessions.
Advice was given on kit set up and choices, and focuses on increasing proficiency with double tank configuration, through proper control of the buoyancy, trim, propulsion, teamwork and other TDI principles. Buoyancy, trim and ascent practice together with problem management and gas planning adds up to a worthwhile investment in training to use the new equipment.
Congratulations Eric and we look forward to seeing you again for future training!
