IANTD Open Circuit Tek Instructor.

Prerequisite: Must be 18 years of age upon starting Divemaster course. If a student is already a Divemaster, with any agency, they will only be required to take any courses not covered under that program.

The International Agency of Nitrox and Technical Diving (IANTD) is dedicated to producing knowledgeable and skillful divers. One of IANTD differentials in the formation of any confident and safe IANTD Diver is their training philosophy known as: WATER РWisdom, Attitude, Training, Experience and Repetition. Ocean Legends International Diving Academy’s IANTD Open Circuit Tek Instructor Program takes students with no prior dive experience and turns them into confident instructors who can teach traditional backmount and side mount diving configuration certifications at greater depths. Sidemount configuration is the preferred configuration for open circuit technical diving which is gaining in popularity around the world.

This 25 week program (or 13.5 weeks if taking the 40 hr/wk program), consisting of 546 total hours, utilizes both classroom and extensive in-water skills development. IANTD and Ocean Legends International Diving Academy believes in incorporating skills and stress management into every diving course to develop safe divers, divemasters, and instructors. As students advance through the program, they will have opportunities to assist in instruction and develop their skills while receiving constant feedback from our IANTD instructors to become successful instructors.
