Become a “Thinking Diver.” The Essentials of Recreational Diving course is the point of entry for all certified divers and is the certified divers’ prerequisite for all other recreational UTD classes (except Rec 1). Essentials of Rec gives every diver an opportunity to learn the personal skills needed to participate in a unified team and be in the water as a “thinking diver.”

Prerequisites Minimum 16 years of age. Must be a certified open water diver from a recognized training agency. Course limits Maximum depth is 60’/18m Standard gas is Air (21% O2) No stage decompression No overhead environments.

Who this class is designed for? The Essentials of Recreational Diving is where students receive the foundation of UTD philosophy, configuration and in-water skills. The class is designed for any diver that wants to learn about the benefits of UTD and apply it to their diving. The class is geared toward the newly certified open water diver, but even seasoned veteran divers have found that by incorporating UTD principles into their diving practices, they increase both safety and fun.

Why Should I Take this Class? Regardless of your experience level, UTD philosophy allows you to grow as a diver. Some divers are eager to begin incorporating the increased skill and academic demands of UTD but do not have the desire to become deep technical divers. This class is tailor made for a new open water diver who wants to know what skills they need to work on, or for the diver new to UTD who wants to learn more without the burden of passing a class.
