IANTD « The Essentials » courses

IANTD « The Essentials » courses

It is a training particularly recommended for divers who wish to start a Tek diving course and it is essential to progress effectively towards the different levels of technical divers!

This training is also intended for all divers because it addresses the mastery of fundamental diving techniques (buoyancy, « trim », propulsions, assistance and self-assistance procedures, optimized configurations, etc.) and develops concepts of mental, physical and technical preparation for safe dives.

The “The Essentials” program consists of 3 levels:

– Essentials Diver
– Tek Lite Essentials Diver
– Technical Essentials Diver

Course duration: 1 weekend (+ 1 day in a natural environment for the « Technical » level).

Prerequisites:

Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent (CMAS 2 *, Level 2 …)

Minimum age: 15 years old

Training content :

Theory sessions: 4

Module 1: Mental and physical preparation:

This chapter discusses the diver’s thinking and motivations on these diving goals, training planning, diver education and the importance of repeating technical exercises.

Module 2: Configuration and basic techniques:

This chapter presents the different recommended configurations in order to increase the hydrodynamics, self-help and intervention capacities of divers.

It also includes advice on how to control buoyancy, the position of the diver (the famous « Trim ») and alternative propulsion techniques.

Module 3: Anatomy, Physiology and Physical Preparation:

With basic knowledge of the anatomy of the human body being taught at other levels in diver training, this part of the program instead focuses on often overlooked or poorly developed information like knowledge of the skeleton and how it is. used in diving, stretching techniques to improve the comfort and position of the diver in immersion, the muscles and their energy functioning, the importance of hydration and advice on sports diet.

Module 4: Exercises and mental preparation:

The objective of this part of the course is to develop harmony between body and mind, as well as a sense of responsibility in the diver, for himself and for his partner.

Mental preparation, concentration, visualization and breath control are the main chapters of this part of the course.

But, we also talk about concepts rarely discussed such as intuition or the survival instinct.

Practical training workshops on land / « land drills »: 2

The “land drills” sessions are very important because they allow to put into practice the subjects taught during the theory modules.

Verification and improvement of configurations, visualization and concentration exercises, estimation of capacities in the event of an air failure, assistance drills and stress management are among the techniques developed.

Dives in swimming pool / protected environment or natural environment: 2 to 4 dives for a minimum of 240 minutes of immersion.

During dives in natural and protected environments, divers confirm their mastery of the techniques discovered during the theory sessions and “land drills”.

Other important techniques are added to the program such as learning buoyancy and propulsion techniques, valve closing drills, gas sharing, handling of relay / deco bottles, consumption calculations (RMV ) and parachute deployment.
