Skills Workshops

In addition to the formal courses, here at Tech Dive NZ we offer a number of non-certification workshops that are intended to either give you an introduction to a new aspect of diving, or help improve existing skills to help you achieve your goals.

Each of the workshops we offer naturally leads in to at least one of the courses we offer and many of the skills conducted in the workshop may be credited towards ongoing training. However, as there is no pre-defined set of skills, each workshop may be tailored to suit the participants.

Pricing

Our workshops provide excellent value in terms of refining and enhancing your dives skills. Attending a full day workshops may cost as little as $100 for the day (based on four divers), or if you prefer private tuition you may pay $400. Our workshop prices include the use of any specialist equipment required, but excludes other direct costs such as fills or pool entry costs.
