TECHNICAL COURSES

NITROX COURSE

Extend your bottom time.

Diving with enriched air (EANx) can increase your no-decompression limits, your safety, and also reduce the required length of your surface intervals when compared to air.

This program will teach you how to safely plan and dive with enriched air mixtures of up to 40% oxygen and allow you to conduct dives between  40 and 132 ft (12 and 40m).

It is the first step for all the next technical courses,as you will have a better understanding of breathing different gas blends.

 

WHAT I WILL LEARN?

  • Learn all information needed to understand and dive safely with different mixes of gas.
  • Oxygen analyzer calibration.
  • How to analyze the gas.
  • Cylinder labeling/marking.
  • Dive plan

LIMITS:

  • Dives between 40 to 132 ft (12 and 40mts)
  • EANx mixes between 21% and 40% oxygen

DURATION: minimum of 1 day

REQUIREMENTS

Open Water Certification or equivalent

Z

Sufficient experience to satisfy the instructor that the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training

Minimum age: 10

ADVANCED NITROX COURSE

First approach to decompression procedures.

This Program is designed to extend the diver’s knowledge in the use of EANx for Sport diving.

It further develops diving skills and provides a greater understanding of the EANx concept of diving.

The purpose of this program is to qualify divers to go to 132 ft (40m) with the decompression stops required using only 1 deco gas blend.

WHAT I WILL LEARN?

  • Precision buoyancy control and dive techniques.
  • Emergency situations and drills.
  • Dive plan (gas management, CNS exposure risks, MOD…)
  • Deploy a lift bag.
  • General awareness.
  • Gas switching to a decompression gas mixture (no more than 1.5 PO2)
  • Accident management and control techniques.

LIMITS:

  • Dives between 40 to 132 ft (12 and 40mts )
  • EANx mixes between 21% and 50% oxygen
  • Maximum PO2 limit during the dive: 1.4 ata
  • Maximum PO2 limit during decompression: 1.5 ata
  • Mandatory decompression stops are limited to a maximum of 15 minute

DURATION: minimum of 3 days

REQUIREMENTS

IANTD EANx Diver or equivalent and IANTD Deep Diver or equivalent.

NOTE: The Deep Diver program can be taken concurrently with the Adv. EANx

Z

30 logged dives or sufficient experience to satisfy the instructor that the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training

Minimum age: 15

TEC DIVER COURSE

Expand your limits

This course is designed to provide a greater understanding of breathing air and a complete knowledge of the limits of any EANx mixture.

As well as learning how to use two different decompression gas blends, between 21% and 100% oxygen.

WHAT I WILL LEARN?

  • Peak performance of buoyancy, trim and propulsion techniques.
  • Emergency protocols.
  • Use of 2 deco stages.
  • Use of a lift bag or buoy.
  • Calculate your air consumption rate and gas planning.
  • Dive planning.

 

LIMITS:

  • Maximum Depth 170 ft (50 mts)
  • EANx mixes between 21% and 100% oxygen
  • Maximum PO2 limit during the dive: 1.4 ata
  • Maximum PO2 limit during decompression: 1.6 ata

DURATION: minimum of 3 days

REQUIREMENTS

IANTD Advanced EANx Diver or equivalent.

Z

100 logged dives, of which at least 30 were deeper than 90 ft (27m)

Minimum age: 18
