These courses utilise air or nitrox for the primary breathing gas with nitrox based decompression mixtures. All materials, certifications and equipment rental is included, however gas costs are excluded from course fees.
The three day Advanced Nitrox programme covers the use of twin tanks (or side mount) along with a single stage bottle for extended limit divers up to 40m in depth.
The principal of the course is to cover the basic procedures and requirements to safely execute dives using two different breathing gases. One gas (Air/Nitrox) is used for the deeper portion of the dive with a richer nitrox gas (up to pure Oxygen) used to extend the non-stop limit of the shallower portion of the dive.
Normallt combined with Advanced Nitrox, the Decompression procedures is a 3 day programme designed to outline the basic procedures of planning and executing staged decompression dives.
The course covers the use of planning softwareand in-water skills to complete actual decompression dives where the non-stop limit is esceeded in the bottom portion of the dive.
The normal entry level programme for decompression diving is the combined Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures programme. Covering the basic of decompression diving with the use of a single decompression gas the AN+DP course gets the best out of both of the Advanced Nitrox and the Decompression Procedures course to allow decompression dives up to 45m in depth using Air/Nitrox mixtures.
The extended range programme is a 5 day course which expands on the AN+DP course to cover the use of a second decompression gas to allow for accelerated decompression on longer divers, or where Helium based mixtures are not easily available, deeper dives down to 55m in depth.
These courses utilise trimix (helium, oxygen and nitrogen) for the primary breathing gas with trimix/nitrox based decompression mixtures. All materials and certification costs are included, however equipment rental and gas costs are excluded from course fees.
This 5 day course covers the use of helium in our breathing mixture to enable deep dives to be made down to 60m using trimix as the primary breathing gas and two nitrox based decompression gases.
For divers seeking to explore the deepest depths of recreational progrmame the hypoxic trimix course is a must. The 6 day programme covers the safe use of hypoxic trimix (less then 16% oxygen) mixes down to depths of 100m (or more after training).
The course covers hypoxic breathing protocols and switches at the surface, along with the use of 3 or more stage/deco bottles during the dive.
These courses utilise various breathing mixtures for both the primary breathing gas and decompression mixtures. All materials and certification costs are included in the course fee, however equipment use and gases are excluded.
The 5 day technical wreck programme extends existing wreck divers ability to safely penetrate overhead environments well past the 'daylight zone' and into the interior of the wreck.
Basic navigation and line laying procedures and skills are refined, while emergency procedures and scenarios are used to enable the diver to act appropriately in the event of a system failure or lost line/buddy.
