    Technical diving is not to be taken lightly. Whether diving in a cave, a wreck, or diving deep, this type of diving requires great diving skill, discipline, proper gear, physical fitness, and a thorough understanding of decompression procedures and physiology.

    Technical divers may find themselves using trimix, nitrox, or rebreathers to help them achieve their goals, and therefore, it is critically important for them to have a thorough understanding of these tools and to acquire proper training in their uses.

    Technical diving does not allow much room for error since the result of an error may quite likely be death, or, if you are lucky, a trip
    to a recompression chamber. Technical divers must accept these risks and prepare themselves for the possibility they may one day meet the Reaper -- the circumstances of which may be totally out of their hands.
