Training with TDI has provided divers with the opportunity to see such as deep wrecks around Malta, as HMS Southwold, Le Polynesien and HMS Stubborn P 238, Bristol Beaufighter, HMS Eddy and an exhilarating journey through silent canyons of Gozo, that’s the incredible experience of Technical diving in the Mediterranean Sea. Starfish Diving School can provide all necessary technical gear and high safety standards, all the dive planning and support required as well as leading the dive and providing support divers as necessary.

Intro to Tech

The TDI Intro to Tech course introduces students to the world of technical diving. This course is designed as an introductory course to the TDI Advanced Nitrox course and the TDI Decompression Procedures Course. The objective of this course is to familiarize students with technical equipment configurations, to enhance open water diving skills (such as buoyancy, trim, and situational awareness), and to introduce students to advanced gas planningtechniques within a no-decompression context.

Nitrox Diver

This is the entry-level certification course for recreational divers wishing to utilize enriched air nitrox(EAN) as a breathing gas. The objective of this course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards, and properprocedures for using nitrox mixes from 22 through 40 percent oxygen content.

Advanced Nitrox Diver

This course examines the use of EAN-21 through 100 percent oxygen for optimal mixes to a depth of 40 metres. The objective of this course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures forutilizing EAN-21 through 100 percent oxygen for dives not requiring staged decompression. TDI DecompressionProcedures or the Intro to Tech may be combined with this course at the discretion of the instructor.

Decompression Procedures Diver
Decompression Procedures Diver

This course examines the theory, methods and procedures of planned stage decompression diving. Thisprogram is designed as a stand-alone course or it may be taught in conjunction with TDI Advanced Nitrox,Advanced Wreck, or Extended Range Course. The objective of this course is to train divers how to plan andconduct a standard staged decompression dive not exceeding a maximum depth of 45 metres unless taughtin conjunction with the TDI Extended Range Course.

Extended Range Diver
Extended Range Diver

This course provides training and experience required to competently utilize air for dives up to 55 metres that requires staged decompression, utilizing nitrox mixtures or oxygen during decompression.

Helitrox Diver
Helitrox Diver

The Helitrox course examines the theory, methods and procedures for planned stage decompression divingutilizing Helium in the breathing mixture. This program is designed as a stand-alone course or it may be taught inconjunction with TDI Advanced Nitrox at the discretion of the instructor.
