Technical Wreck Course

sidemount technical wreck philippinesINTRODUCTION

My exclusive Technical Wreck course develops the skills, knowledge and procedures required for technical level divers to operate safely in the overhead wreck environment.

The course focuses on complex penetration and guidelines skills, along with a team approach for safe and controlled exploration inside areas of shipwrecks that pose significant hazards.

The course explains the dangers, risks, mitigating procedures and necessary techniques involved while technical diving in the overhead wreck environment, going beyond the daylight zone, beyond 40m/130ft linear distance from the surface, through restrictions and in confined spaces.


The Technical Wreck course, exclusive from renown technical wreck instructor Andy Davis, places a high emphasis on the refinement of core (technical) diving skills: buoyancy, trim, weighting and situational awareness. In addition, it focuses on the management of high tolerance task loading, stress control and the development of effective team diving skills in limited/zero visibility. 

Put simply; this is one of the most challenging, highly demanding courses that you could ever take… but also, without doubt, one of the most personally satisfying and rewarding!

You will learn:  Advanced Dive Planning, Guideline Deployment and Retrieval, Team Skills, Situational Awareness, Lost Line Emergency Protocol, Lost Diver Emergency Protocol, Entanglement Protocol, Cut/Snapped Line Protocol, Visual and Tactile Communications, Air-Sharing Egress, Passage Through Restrictions, Zero Visibility Drills, Light-Failure Protocol..

Do not confuse this with ‘Advanced Wreck’ programs.  This is an elite-level technical wreck program.
