ITDA Technical Specialist Diver has three (3) Distinct levels: Level 1 (Basic Skills - Introduction level - Entry Level Technical Diver.) And Level 2 Intermediate Technical Specialist Diver Certification. And we now offer our "Unique" Advanced Specialist Certifications, giving Technical Specialist divers recognition for their advanced status in theory and diving skills, and much greater experience.
Please NOTE: A minimum of 25 Open Water Dives experience are required for Entry Level Technical Diver Level 1. and above levels require a minimum of of 50+ Open Water Dives Experience... ITDA Advanced Technical Specialist Diver (Level 3) may have as many as 12 dives minimum to 20+ in the specialist subject area, and up to 40+ hours of theory, plus assignments and Instructor led projects...
ITDA Technical Instructors or Specialist Technical Instructors, may train and certify the Levels as authorised by ITDA HQ.
However the Technical Advanced Specialist / Level 3 Programs may ONLY be certified by ITDA Technical Advanced Specialist Instructors with unique specialist skills, knowledge and experience in the specialist area.
Instructors may now also take the assessor workshop and then they may add the ITDA Academy Certificate in Diving (Specialist) and Diploma program....
Because ITDA are also a Technical Training Agency we can offer those scuba divers, who are pre-qualified by; Certification, Training and Experience to "UPGRADE" from our Sports Scuba levels a direct path to our technical levels...
So they do not have to find a another agency or Instructor (As many ITDA Instructors are also technical or may take upgrade professional courses with us to graduate as Technical)
