NARCOTEC TECHNICAL DIVING

Our courses are always taught in blocks of full days and preferably all days combined in the shortest possible time frame. Cave courses are always taught in 1 continuous period. This ensures maximum focus and much faster progress. As we only teach in small groups, this allows for a highly personalised training.

 

We organise courses according to your timing.

Good buoyancy control, proper trim and descent propulsion techniques are required for all courses. This will be checked upon the start of the course and will determine if you can actually start the course or not.

 

If you feel your skills are not good enough or need a refresher, than we highly recommend doing the ESSENTIALS course before continuing with any of the other courses.

ESSENTIALS DIVER

In addition to the Advanced EANx course, the ESSENTIALS is a must for those who want to enter the world of technical diving or who want to perfect their recreational or technical diving skills. A very versatile course that can be perfectly personalized to your interests and needs. Also a good refresher course in case your diving skills can use some polishing.
