About ITDA Group Technical
What is Technical Diving?
Technical Diving has no simple definition but generally refers to types or styles of diving beyond the recreational normal safe diving limits of 30m / 100ft. and is generally accepted in the worldwide diving industry to be diving with Nitrox mixes above 40% Oxygen and also for diving on Air or mixed gases below 40m / 132ft.
The obvious hazards of these types of diving and the associated “Specialist Diving Certification” areas of: Environmental Challenges like. Overhead / Cave / Wreck / and ICE diving and also using mixed gases like Trimix and high grade, high oxygen content for rapid / acceleration of Decompression for very deep diving all require a very high degree of specialist training and specialist safety procedures and advanced knowledge levels in Dive Planning, Physiology and Dive Physics.
This is why we adopt an attitude of “SAFETY FIRST”. If we add to the above mix of the worldwide growth in interest in both sports and Technical use of Rebreathers both SCR and CCR Units.
We can see a very long future for the need of high quality, high standards in training agencies like ITDA Group International. We also acknowledge the very high standards and groundbreaking work of agencies like IANTD and TDI. in the USA and around the World.

Technical Diving is of course much more expensive than Sports Diving. Why?
The cost of training and equipment for technical diving MUST be higher than that of Sports diver training, simply because of the additional safety standards required, plus the need for and dependence on much more expensive equipment. If you try to buy inexpensive technical equipment or adapt sports equipment for technical diving you may end up serious injured or dead!
