Re: Technical Spearfishing Instruction

Kaynan,

Yeah 18 for almost all TDI tech classes. Nitrox can start at 15. Advanced Nitrox can too, but most take it with Decompression Procedures which is also 18 minimum.

My advice would be to read all the dive texts you can, and build a big pyramid of dive experience. It's ok to know more & have more dives than divers with C-cards.

Nice black BTW!

Chad
