Tech 2 training focuses on critical skills in the bottom failures with a stage as well as mid-water - cultivating, integrating and ultimately testing the diver’s mid-water skills and ability to deal with failures not only on the bottom but also during the ascent and gas switch–skills which are essential for safe technical diving.
This is a critical skills class. Failures will be introduced by the instructor to facilitate problem identification and resolution and building capacity and bandwidth for more progressively challenging diving.Students will continue to use double tanks/cylinders and a single decompression bottle of EAN50 for accelerated “on the fly” decompression and will use helium to minimize narcosis. Stage bottles, and the potential failures associated with them will be discussed in depth. The application and benefit of single decompression stage diving will also be thoroughly explored.
