TDI Full Cave Diver

The TDI Full Cave Diver course extends the skills and knowledge of Intro to Cave divers to prepare them for more complex dives, including unlimited penetration distances, complex navigation and swimming through confined spaces and restricted passages.

It teaches you how to plan a dive with more complex planning and gas management. Also, it enhances previously learned skills to fit new and more challenging situations.

Greater distances require a higher self-awareness from the divers, as the physical and psychological challenges increase.

Full Cave divers can pass intersections and place temporary lines in order to perform jumps, gaps, circuits and traverses. Complex navigation requires refined diving techniques and advanced referencing methods to avoid disorientation.

As divers venture into smaller passages, the risk of being stuck or to be entangled increases exponentially. The TDI Full Cave Diver course provides you with simple, efficient protocols and helps you develop clear mindset coupled with sound judgement in stressful situations.
