TDI Stage Cave Diver

The TDI Stage Cave Diver Course is designed to teach trained cave divers how to extend bottom times and/or penetration distance through the use of stage cylinders. Divers will learn to plan dives that may incorporate longer bottom times, complex dive planning, and multiple methods of gas management. With respect to depth, gas mixes, and required decompression, course dives will not exceed the student’s current level of certification and experience level.

Who this course is for

  • The certified TDI Full Cave Diver (or equivalent) looking to extend their penetration limits
  • Course prerequisites:
  • Minimum age 18
  • Certified as a TDI Full Cave Diver, or equivalent

    What’s in it for you?

    Upon successful completion of this course, graduates may engage in stage cave diving activities without direct supervision so long as the following limits are adhered to:

  • Penetration is limited to the 1/3 air rule, or more conservative air-plan at instructor’s discretion.
  • No equipment removal in cave with exception of stage cylinders
  • Students are encouraged to gain experience before attempting to plan and execute complex stage cave dives
  • Safety and decompression stops are completed as appropriate or necessary
