Tech 1

Technical Diver Level 1

What

Tech 1 builds upon the skills learned and perfected in GUE Fundamentals and teaches divers how to use these skills to transition from recreational “no stop” diving to deeper or longer dives with staged, accelerated decompression. This course includes instruction, practice, feedback on dive and decompression planning, gas switches, emergency procedures, refinement of Fundamentals skills for “blue water” ascents, teamwork, conservation, and accident analysis. In this class, expect to spend a lot of time in the water, work hard, and have a lot of fun.

Why

Explore deeper or longer with the right gasses and procedures that allow you to see those wrecks, reefs, or fish not seen within the limits of recreational diving. At Wet Rocks Diving, our roots come from cold water wreck diving and we love showing new technical divers these sites while making them comfortable and competent in this new environment!
