TDI Intro to Cave Diving Course

e-learning code

The TDI Intro to Cave Diving course is the first level of cave diving training that allows you to dive past the cavern zone and into the cave. Away from the natural daylight zone and into the dark zone.

You can combine the Cavern Diver and Intro to Cave Diver courses to make it six days of high-quality training and a great learning experience. During this advanced diver level course, you will safely learn the critical survival skills necessary to dive into the Cave Zone once you have mastered the exercises required for this level.

Although we are Razor Sidemount Instructors and teach the Intro to Cave Diver course in Sidemount configuration, you can use any Sidemount Gear brand you like during your Cave Training.

We need proof of Open Water and Sidemount certification to begin the Introductory Cave course unless you take the Sidemount course together with your Overhead Environments Diving Training.
