About Technical Diving

Training and Certification

International Technical Diving Agency (ITDA), as the name suggests we are technical diver training specialists and from our formation back in 1998 as the ETDA European Technical Diving Agency the ITDA has developed and progressed technical diving in 60+ Countries and now offers higher and safer training standards then many other agencies...

About ITDA Technical Diving?

Many technical agencies have courses that are considered "Entry Level" but which require a lot of experience dives to enter. We have created a number of Crossover / Upgrade core programs for Open Water Divers and Resort Diver levels to directly gain the experience and knowledge required to become a Technical diver.

Technical diving is generally considered to be only for Advanced Diver, so we had to be different!


Entry Level Technical from Open Water Diver level

The first of our upgrade to technical diver programs is our Ntech Nitrox Diver program offering current nitrox divers the opportunity to discover the additional benefits of using mixes higher than 40% Oxygen, and learning about how nitrox gas is blended and about basic decompression theory.

The next steps from Ntech is Advanced Ntech or Extended Range Diver or even our introduction to "CCR Closed Circuit Rebreather" diving.
