This course is to provide the diver with the experience and knowledge needed to minimize the risk of diving beyond 73m (240 ft.) while utilizing helium-based trimix breathing mixtures, hypoxic trimix breathing mixtures, helium based and EANx-based travel gases as well as EANx and oxygen during decompression.
This course is to provide the diver with the skills and knowledge needed to minimize the risks of utilizing helium based trimix breathing gas mixes for dives to a maximum depth of 73m (240 ft.) requiring staged decompression and utilizing EANx mixtures and/or oxygen during decompression.
This course is to provide the diver with a working knowledge of the theory, methods, and procedures of planned staged decompression diving while using optimal breathing gas mixtures. As a part of the course students will plan and conduct standard staged decompression dives not exceeding a maximum depth of 46m (150 ft.) while using air, nitrox or helitrox if combined with that course.
This course (Intro to Tech) introduces recreational divers to the rigors and discipline of technical diving, and is a great preparatory course if you are considering specific technical diver training, such as cave or decompression diving, or are interested in streamlining your equipment configuration for maximum efficiency.
