Introducing IANTD...

Whatever you want to do, IANTD can get you there. Our diver training programs offer a means of diving more safely and in more environments - whatever your level and interests...

The International Association of Nitrox and Technical Divers has been at the cutting edge of diver training for more than 20 years. From the first nitrox course in the world to our Tek Lite programs which allow for reduced narcosis in the entry-level tech depth range, through to CCR Cave and Expedition Trimix, we've been setting the standard since the very beginning.

We offer a complete range of training courses from Open Water Diver through to Expedition Trimix using both open and closed circuit equipment and a full range of cave diver training programs. Our instructor trainers and instructors represent some of the very best technical divers and educators in the UK and across the world.

Becoming an IANTD Instructor offers a privileged opportunity to pass on your knowledge, experience and dive skills to the divers of tomorrow. With an IANTD Instructor Trainer as your mentor, IANTD Instructor courses are designed to develop and enhance your diving skills, teaching and supervisory skills in a controlled and structured manner.
