Techreational Diver is the first part of Technical 1 and is an optional course to allow students to progress through the first level technical course at a slower pace than taking the full Technical 1 course. This entry level course familiarizes divers with the use of Helitrox 25/25 as a safe bottom breathing gas for use to depths of 130’/39m with a single decompression bottle containing 100% O2 for accelerated decompression.
- Prerequisites: Essentials of Tech or equivalent
- minimum 3 days training
- Successful completion of Techreational Diver qualifies a student to use a normoxic Helium mix of 25/25 and 100% Oxygen for decompression.
- The limits for a UTD Techreational diver are 130’/39m and the use of one decompression bottle with 100% O2.
