Deco Diving in Thailand
Decompression diving techniques mastered on a wreck off the coast of Thailand
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the successful graduation of Edward Pearl from his TDI Decompression Procedures course conducted by TDI Instructor James Thornton-Allan and assisted by SSI TXR Instructor Chris Haslam on Koh Tao Island off the coast of Thailand.
As sport divers, planned decompression is not something that we do or have been taught. The TDI Decompression Procedures course prepares you for planned staged decompression diving. With a maximum operating depth of 45m/150 feet, this course is your first step beyond the normal sport diving limits. Your TDI Instructor will provide you with valuable information and skills, among the topics covered are
- Kit set-up
- Equipment requirements
- Decompression techniques
- Decompression breathing gases
- Gas management
- Contingency planning
The TDI Decompressions Procedures course combined with the TDI Advanced Nitrox course form the foundation of all other technical courses. After these two courses and some additional experience, the stage has been set for you to move onto additional technical levels
This course was taught in combination with a day of wreck diving further exposing the student to different elements of technical diving.
