Introduction to Wreck Divingupside for Sports Scuba Divers

What is it about these sunken vessels that make them so interesting to so many different types of divers, is it the mystery of how or why they sunk, or the risk of finding treasure.

Whatever the reasons, we are very pleased to introduce you to an exciting and challenging Diver Training Program from ITDA (International Technical Diving Agency), as one of the top International training and certification agencies for divers in both Sports and Technical Diving worldwide,

We bring you this specialist diver certification training program for divers from any agency and any background. (Previous certification and training maybe credited by your instructor)

(No Penetration beyond the light zone, and no areas where direct access to the surface is NOT available). These may be included in our technical wreck diver levels.

Because the ITDA training and certification is a step above other agency training and has higher safer standards aimed to challenge your skills and develop your diving abilities but in a safe supervised and controlled manner. wreck_bars

This unique training and certification program has been designed for both “Sports Divers” and “Technical Divers”, alike with the simple aim of offering a wreck diver training course program that meets and exceeds the growing needs of the current worldwide markets for such training.

With this aim in mind we have produced new standards to incorporate a new multidiscipline approach to our unique certifications available from this training and certification program. i.e. The Inclusion of “Side Mounted Cylinder Skills”, and advanced diving configurations aimed at safer wreck diving.
