Advanced/Technical Wreck Diver
Advanced Wreck Diver is a challenging and fulfilling course. It's about finding your personal best as a diver. I personally believe this course strengthens people as divers. If there is one course that my students continue to talk about long after the course is over it's the Advanced/Technical Wreck course.
The course aims provide the knowledge and experience divers need to conduct advanced wreck dives with confidence and with a higher level of safety.
Topics covered include the dangers of the overhead environment, buoyancy control, equipment configuration with a high emphasize on equipment streamlining, awareness in an overhead environment, different finning techniques. Multi cylinder gas management for long wreck penetrations.
The diving portion consists of a number of confined-water skills work-up dives. These dives establish the students' buoyancy, trim, configuration and comfort of their equipment. This will lead to the students second set of dives aimed at helping to achieve proficiency in completing a number of timed task-loading skills while on or in the wreck.
