TDI Extended Range Diver
Have you ever thought about what happens when you exceed a no decompression limit or what is just inside that shipwreck or just over that ledge.
Would you like to know?, but not if you have to wear 4 scuba tanks and complete 2 hours of decompression time? If so welcome to the world of extended range diving. Many divers are surprised to discover that many “technical” dives can be completed with minor modifications to their recreational diving systems.
If you are interested in learning what Technical Divers know about increasing safety when a No Decompression Limit is exceeded all while managing your risk and using your current Total Diving System then Extended Range Diving is for you! This is the course if you at that stage in your diving where you want dive longer, maybe a little deeper and you want to know how to do it safely. This course is the most rewarding course you can take as a diver and sets the foundations for all your future deep diving

- Decompression options
- Use of surface marker buoys
- Buddy rescue
- Narcosis checks and management
