A International Association of Nitrox & Technical Divers foi fundada em 1985 para atender às necessidades de muitos mergulhadores. Nessa época o uso de misturas gasosas para o mergulho e gases de descompresão estava limitado, oficialmente, aos militares e aos mergulhadores comerciais.
Em 1985 Dick Rutkowski aposentou-se do cargo de supervisor de mergulho da National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) e, juntamente com outros líderes da comunidade de mergulho, fundou a International Association of Nitrox Divers. O objetivo era apresentar os benefícios do Nitrox para diversos cenários de mergulho e ensinar o seu uso seguro em mergulhos recreativos e descompressivos.
Em 1992 sob a liderença de Tom Mount, a organização cresceu para se tornar a principal agência de treinamento de mergulho técnico do mundo, oferecendo cursos sobre todos os aspectos do mergulho esportivo. O nome foi então mudado para International Association of Nitrox & Technical Divers, IANTD, para melhor refletir a ênfase no mergulho técnico

Treinar mergulhadores é o que nossos profissionais fazem de melhor!
