Wreck Diving is some of the most exciting diving you can do! With all of the excitement of swimming along a sunken ship, there are also hazards that every wreck diver needs to know how to handle before descending down to the wreck. These hazards include things such as disorientation, loss of visibility, gas management, decompression hazards, and more. Learn skills such as line handling, slate use for mapping, identifying hazards, proper propulsion, and light penetration. These skills will enable you to dive safely in wrecks all over the world.
After completing the Basic Wreck Course you may find yourself wanting to go further and further into wrecks. While the basic course teaches you to map out a wrecks points of interests and how to navigate around a wreck with line laying techniques there is still quite a bit to learn about penetrating into a wreck safely. That is where the Advanced Wreck Diving Course comes in. The Advanced Wreck course picks up from the Wreck Course at penetrating inside the wreck.
During this course, you will learn how to properly plan your dive time and gas management to deal with dives that now have linear portions to them. You will learn how to lay and follow lines through the narrow restrictions of wreck rooms and corridors as well as how to manage emergencies while still inside the wreck.
Note- All the paperwork you'll need, along with a what to do before class checklist is located at the bottom of this tab.
Pre-class intro and TDI Folder
Before you can start class you'll need to fill out some paperwork. Most of this can be done ahead of time, but some of it will have to be done in the shop. The only piece that MUST be completed at the shop is a folder provided by TDI. You will need to fill this particular folder out in the shop as we keep it for our records. You can do this before class - just remember to show up 30 minutes early if you haven't filled it out yet!
There are a couple of forms that can be done ahead of time. Most important is the medical. Go through the medical now and check to see if you need to answer "YES" to any of the questions. If so no big deal - you'll just need to get a doctors' sign-off before we can let you in the pool. The doctors' note is in the same file as the medical - Just scroll down to the next page. Remember IF you answer "YES" to anything in the medical it is COMPULSORY to get a doctors' note BE
After completing the form you will get an email signing you up for online training. The online training needs to be completed BEFORE coming to class. If you don't receive an email within 36 hours call the shop, and we'll make sure to unlock the training for you.
Since this course is semi-private you'll be working directly with the instructor to schedule your class time, pool sessions and dives. The course is typically finished with one Classroom session, one Pool session and two days of diving.
This course is typically done as a partially private course already. If you're interested in taking this course and don't see it on the schedule please contact Alex, our Tech diving director. He can be reached directly at Alex@ecdivers.com
