WELCOME TO TEKCAMP
Discover your fast-track to tech success!

Even if you're not looking to go down the tech route, TEKCamp offers a unique opportunity to improve your diving skills and increase your in-water confidence under the direct guidance of the industry's foremost technical instructors.

IS TEKCAMP RIGHT FOR ME?
Whatever your experience, TEKCamp is for you!

TEKCamp is designed to suit divers of all levels - from recreational divers simply wishing to become safer and more confident divers to hardcore, experienced open and closed circuit rebreather divers wishing to take the next big step into expedition-level diving.

All our instructors remember their first shutdowns and sidemount bungee twangs - if you're just starting to explore entry level tech, then these educators can provide a focus on what will get you started in the best way possible. It's perceptive and bespoke training to give you the best platform for your diving ambitions.

For established tech divers they can safely distil a flavour of the most challenging exploration dives into an educational session. Want a glimpse into the world of cutting edge cave diving? We have sessions for that. Wondering how to move up to managing long multigas deco? Step this way.

Your tech career starts here
You don't need to be a tech diver to attend TEKCamp - infact, you don't even need to own tech gear! Thanks to Apeks UK, our 'discovery' pathway lets would-be tech divers discover the tech route that best suits them. You'll get to try both a twinset and a sidemount system and then choose which configuration you'd like to use for the rest of TEKCamp at no extra charge! Later in the week, you'll also get to try dive a closed circuit rebreather.

Our instructors remember what it was like to take your first steps in tech diving. All our 'foundational' workshops are designed to suit divers with no previous tech experience and will be tailored to your abilities.

INTERMEDIATE
TECH DIVERS
Develop your tech diving
For divers who already have some experience of tech training or are simply experienced twinset divers, we offer a range of workshops designed to develop your existing skills and give you a raft of new skills that will allow you to take your diving to the next level. Working with you to develop a route that best suits your style of diving, our team of experienced instructors will help you to realise your tech ambitions.

ADVANCED
TECH DIVERS
Skills for tech explorers
When we say that our instructors are the very best, we really do mean it - most are industry leaders, training directors and, above all, diving explorers in their own right. They have quite literally 'been there and done it'. For experienced technical divers, we offer a range of workshops that tackle the more complex and cutting-edge aspects of technical diving.

These workshops offer the opportunity to learn skills that are simply not available anywhere else, taught by explorers who have used these skills on real diving expeditions! From rigging an underwater habitat to cave survey, complex navigation and deco stations, TEKCamp has it all!

NO KIT? NO PROBLEM!

Our team of TEKCamp rebreather instructors are at the very cutting edge of rebreather training and actively use rebreathers within their own exploration-level diving projects. From exploring deep cave systems in some of the most inhospitable regions of the planet to deep expedition-level wreck dives, these guys literally live and breathe rebreathers!

Under their expert guidance, we'll help you to not only master your unit but also work towards higher level rebreather training. Whether's it's MOD2, MOD3 or Expedition-level rebreather diving, TEKCamp will give you the perfect opportunity to really get to grips with your unit.
