Bist Du ausgebildeter Taucher?  Ist das Tauchen Dein grosses Hobby? Hast Du das Gefühl das Deine Tauchgänge viel zu kurz sind, einfach weil es viel mehr zu sehen gibt in der Tiefe, aber die Tauchflasche bietet nur einen begrenzten Vorrat an Luft? Oder konntest Du nicht alle Tauchgänge mitmachen weil das Ziel etwas zu tief für Deine taucherische Qualifikation war. Wir können Dir helfen!

Lasse uns ehrlich sein:-), Tauchen macht süchtig! Nicht ganz so wie Nutella, aber wer das Tauchen liebt, kann nicht genug davon bekommen. Viele Freizeittaucher sind glücklich mit den Grenzen in denen sie tauchen können. Manche möchten aber länger und tiefer tauchen können um an Stellen vorzustossen, die noch nicht allzuviele Menschen gesehen haben. Der DSAT Tec Deep Kurs verhilft Dir dazu.

Für die DSAT Tec Deep Kurse gibt es keine deutschsprachigen Handbücher. Für den akademischen Teil der Ausbildung sind daher ausreichende Englischkenntnisse erforderlich. Unser Informationstext ist daher auch in Englischer Sprache gehalten. Bitte beachte, dass DSAT Tec Kurse einen überlegten und sicherheitsbewussten Taucher voraussetzen. Die Anforderungen dieser Kurse sind hoch und Du solltest psychisch und physisch fit sein.

You’ll also prepare for and respond to foreseeable technical diving emergencies. Since its part of the Tec Deep Diver course, you DSAT Apprentice Tec Dive course training credits toward the DSAT Tec Deep Diver course.

The first 3 days cover the introduction of the skills in shallow waters (or swimming pool). Diving each day and covering the first part of the theory. The next 2 days are 2 dives a day on the boat putting the skills into practice with each day diving getting deeper or longer. After each dive, more theory is covered and then planning dives for the next day.
