Open Invitation to anyone who will be in the Las Vegas area. This is going to be a great presentation in an intimate setting. Joel normally does these for large groups but we will be very fortunate to have him for our small group, so there will be plenty of opportunity to talk one on one with him.

Please feel free to attend and show some support for the sport!!!

Introduction to Technical Diving

Presented by: Joel D. Silverstein, Vice president and Chief Operating officer, Tech Diving Limited

Divers over the past decade have had an increased interest in exploring deeper wrecks, caves, and reefs. This program explores the different types of technical diving, how it's done, why it's done and both the benefits and hazards of using mixed gasses and rebreathers. We will also look at what tools and techniques recreational divers can learn from technical divers. This is a fun and exciting presentation that lets you take a peek into this exciting and challenging method of diving.

You'd be very fortunate to get a small seminar with someone as experienced and knowledgeable as Joel. I'd be all over it if I lived in your neck of the woods.

Well it was a great presentation. He gave his whole background and experience from when tech diving was in its infancy to the present day. This guy has literally done it all, Andrea Doria, Monitor, design and test equipment, books, theory, tables, etc etc.... Amazing stuff.
