TDI Decompression Procedures course

Categories: Tags: , , , , ,

Are you finding your no- decompression limits (NDLs) a limiting factor to dives? Do you have to ascend sooner than you would like? 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 45 metres, this course is your first step beyond the normal sport diving limits. The TDI Decompression 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. read more →

TDI Advanced Nitrox Diver

Categories: Tags: , , , , ,

Are you looking to expand your dive time? Maybe you’re a scientific diver or photographer looking to stay in the water a little longer?

The TDI Advanced Nitrox course qualifies divers to use enriched air nitrox from EAN 21 through EAN 100 percent within your current certification level to a maximum depth of 40 metres/130 feet during dives that 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. TDI Advanced Nitrox is also a must for SCR or CCR divers. read more →

Love scuba diving? Want to share it with others on a whole new level? Take the PADI Divemaster course and do what you love to do as a career.

How can you start learning now?

Sign up for Divemaster Online – PADI’s eLearning option – to start now. You can work through eight knowledge development sections using a web-based system that lets you learn at your own pace. You also have access to an on-line version of the Divemaster Manual for reference during and after the course.

Another option is to study by reading the Divemaster Manual and watching the Divemaster Video (a book and DVD package). Visit Atlantic Scuba to enrol in the course and get your Divemaster Crew-Pak, which also includes other reference materials – like the PADI Instructor Manual and The Encyclopaedia of Recreational Diving – that you’ll need during the course.

Consider taking Dive Theory Online, another PADI eLearning® program, that takes you step-by-step through dive physics, physiology, skills, equipment and environment, plus a Recreational Dive Planner (RDP) review. By successfully completing Dive Theory Online, you can get credit for half of the Divemaster Final Exam. Your PADI Instructor can explain how this works when you meet to schedule knowledge review sessions along with your water skills exercises, workshops and practical assessments.

What scuba gear will you use?

As a dive professional, you’ll want to have all your basic scuba equipment, including a dive computer, a dive knife, and at least two surface signalling devices. During practical skills exercises, like underwater mapping and search and recovery, you’ll use a compass, floats, marker buoys, lift bags and slates. Your PADI Instructor may suggest additional gear that will be useful throughout your diving career.

Check with Atlantic Scuba to get advice about everything you’ll need as a dive pro.

SDI Underwater Navigation Theory On-Line

“We have always been taught that navigation is the result of civilization, but modern archaeology has demonstrated very clearly that this is not so.” Thor Heyerdahl

It could be argued that navigation has held a special fascination for our species since we first walked upright. Certainly, the history of exploration and discovery – the sisters to navigation – would have been a different cloth were it not woven with early attempts at accurate navigation. Long before the arrival of the magnetic compass to Europe, the Vikings guided by nothing more than bravado, a mighty sense of adventure and a rudimentary navigational aid akin to a sundial, sailed across the top of the Atlantic Ocean and made landfall in present-day Newfoundland, Canada. read more →
