What is IANTD?

The International Association of Nitrox and Technical Divers, IANTD for short, is a world recognised diving organisation (similar to PADI) offering dive courses at all levels from beginner through all levels and diversity of diving.

IANTD is the only agency that offers training in all aspects of diving through continuing education programs. This allows you to expand your knowledge and training with the top professionals in the field. IANTD instructors are well trained, highly experienced and extremely qualified. IANTD Standards and Procedures provide for the highest level of education and training available Today the membership of IANTD is composed of many of the most experienced divers in the world.

IANTD could avoid criticism simply by saying nothing, doing nothing and being nothing. As a leader organization IANTD is: Saying something, Doing something and Being something. We are presenting safe and proven concepts for dive tuition. We do not compromise where an issue of safety or a need for knowledge is at stake. Proper equipment is an essential element.

Where there is a corresponding PADI course guidance will be given on which is the best option. Choice is always a good thing. The IANTD framework of diver education offers much more flexibility in how a course is taught than the PADI system making it more suitable for some divers, for example with limited time. All IANTD courses can be taught using a twin tank system, although a single tank can be used for the majority.
