IANTD CCR Cave Diver Course Overview

The IANTD Full Cave Diver course is the third stage of overhead environment training in the series of IANTD's Full Cave Diver Development Program. Advanced cave dive planning, practical execution of different types of cave systems and scenarios divers encounter are presented. This cave diving course is not intended to prepare divers for evaluating all facets of cave diving. The objective of this course is to expand and critique previous skills accomplished in the IANTD's Cavern and Introductory Cave Diving programs. Emphasis is placed upon dive planning and skill perfection through actual cave penetration.

This course is specifically for CCR divers who are already certified on their units with at least a CCR2 level certification (or similar) and CCR Intro Cave.

Course Duration:

This is a 5-day course.


This Program is designed to develop cavern diving skills within the limits of light penetration and to ensure that divers are aware of self-responsibility and capable of risk management in overhead environments.
