Solo Diving Course in Thailand
Experienced recreational divers gain the ability to dive solo.
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the graduation of Etienne De Beer and Caroline Sale from the SDI Solo Diver Course conducted by Solo Diving Instructor James Thornton-Allan on Koh Tao Island off the coast of Thailand.
SDI has been the only agency sanctioning a Solo Diver certification for some time now. You may be asking, “Who is SDI”? Well, SDI (Scuba Diving International) is the open water arm of TDI (Technical Diving International).TDI is the largest technical training organization in the world. SDI is now in a dead heat for the number two position among certifying agencies for the number of divers trained annually in the US.
One of SDI’s most popular courses, the solo diver program teaches experienced recreational divers how to safely dive independently of a dive buddy or strengthen your buddy team skills. The course stresses on proper dive planning, personal limitations, accident prevention as well as the benefits, hazards, and proper procedures for diving solo. You will also learn the additional equipment that is required for solo diving including it’s proper usage and assembly. This is the prefect course for underwater photography and underwater video divers.
Both Caroline and Etienne progress on to the TDI Intro to Tech course tomorrow for more training and experience.
