Tech Diving – Is It In You?
The challenge of technical diving proves to be a rewarding endeavor for new students.
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the graduation of Dive Master Intern Edward Pearl from his TDI Advanced Nitrox Course conducted over 3 days with 4 dives by TDI Instructor James Thornton-Allan off the coast of Thailand on Koh Tao Island.
Edward had previously completed his TDI Intro to Tech course in June with TDI Instructor Andrew Cavell and this was evident because of Edwards Buoyancy and Trim control which was excellent from the beginning.
The TDI Advanced Nitrox Course qualifies divers to use enriched air nitrox from EAN 21 through EAN 100 to a depth of 40 metres/130 feet during dives hat do not require staged decompression. Often taught in conjunction with the TDI Decompression Procedures course, this can be considered the foundation of your technical diving career. Advanced Nitrox is also a great course for those wanting to extend their bottom times in shallower depths such as scientific diver, and a must for SCR or CCR divers.
Edward continues his new found passion for technical diving with his TDI Decompression Procedures course to follow.
