This is a personal skills class that prepares you for the UTD IDC. This is only needed if you have not taken a UTD Essentials of Rec/Tech/Side Mount or any other upper level UTD class.
The three-day class covers how we teach buoyancy, trim, propulsion, basic-6, s-drills, valve drills, and smb deployment. All these skills are taught at demonstration level. The class also goes through proper weighting, how to dive a ‘balanced rig,’ Min-Deco ascent strategies, and Rock Bottom gas planning.
All the skills will be captured on video to ensure that the demonstration quality is sufficient to be admitted to the IDC course.
