You need to go through [highlight]TECHNICAL DIVING COURSE [/highlight]& Certified as [highlight]TECHNICAL DIVER[/highlight]

Whats make you a technical diver, when you do the dive.

That is all to it.

;D

hmm... by looking at some cources offer by those agencies.. if one has gone through decom. procedure... can he be called a technical diver? .. probably a tech rec?

I'm asking this, because, in one thread, raised by SD, about diving to U-859, and is calling for tech divers...

so, if he is a tech diver.. what certification level should he has?

hey bubble... where can one get a technical diploma? any agencies that providing it?

thanks.

Advanced Nitrox Decompression Procedure is the level entry for tech diving. It teaches you to perform tech dives, learn the correct valve drills, buoyancy, OOA situations, dive and gas planning, management and execution. It makes you plan your dives and your decompression stops..preparing your own deco plans etc...and make you dive your plan. You screw up, you pay for it dearly. Not just the RM2.5K..but your physical well-being as well. Decompression Procedures, together with Advanced Nitrox, is the fundamentals that you need to have in order to do tech dives. You will be certified to do staged decompression using Nitrox mix of 50% through 100%. With that, you can do ech dives on air.

When you dive tech, that is when you are a tech diver.

My tech diving buddies, other than Snafu, are Hollowman and Jim (who were my buddies...and I know I can depend my life upon them), Katakpink, Aquaholic (who is a BSAC tech but I have yet to dive with him).

Hopefully I can get my new toy by early next month before Snafu goes for his next job.

To do Advanced Nitrox Decompression Procedures, you need to have 100 logged dives with 25 of them deeper than 30msw.

So get more dives before thinking of going tech. And understand the fundamentals of diving before you do it.

It depends on the training agency .... they set the entry level of Technical diving.

I dont have any technical certification, I just do the dive.

well, i guess if one knows how to dive tech, one doesn't need to go through the course.. rite?

will they have to check your tech card when u dive tech?
or do u just tell them.. i know how to dive tech.. trust me  ;D

eg... some wrecks.. they need to see your aow card..  ::)

I m not sure about the tech course, but i guess to be on the safe side .... is better to do the technical course.

When I do tech diving, nobody ask for my card ..... even for recreational diving.

I just do the dive.
