Diving specialties

Diving can present a wide variety of scenarios and needs that, requiring specific skills, are covered with specialty courses. Even more, there is other very useful knowledge regarding diving that is not dealt with amply enough in the different courses, so this is also included within the specialties. Here you will find a list of all the corresponding certifications, which we have divided into two major blocks: Recreational diving specialties and technical diving specialties, the latter under the name of TEK Range. The two images below take you directly to each block, where we present the corresponding certifications.

Recreational Specialties

Some teach us to dive in different conditions than usual, others give us more intense knowledge about some particularity of diving and others could be just for safety, some do not even require the student to be a diver. These specialties try to cover many conditions and equipment handling that are not treated in depth in the standard diving courses.

Below we list our specialties. If you are our student and you have contracted the elearning version of any of the available specialties, by clicking on the image or the title you will access, with the username and password that you have been given, the study materials.

TEK Range

TEK Range covers the certifications corresponding to what is known as technical diving.
