DECOMPRESSION PROCEDURES DIVER Takes Your Training As A Tech Diver Further And Deeper

The DECOMPRESSION PROCEDURES DIVER with REMOTE AREA DIVE

Are you finding your no- decompression limits (NDLs) a limiting factor to dives? Do you have to ascend sooner than you would like? As sport divers, planned decompression is not something that we do or have been taught.The Decompression Procedures Course prepares you for planned staged decompression diving. With a maximum operating depth of 45 metres/150 feet, this course is your first step beyond the normal sport diving limits. The Decompression Procedures Course combined with the Advanced Nitrox course form the foundation of all other technical courses. After these two courses and some additional experience, the stage has been set for you to move onto additional technical levels.

Who this course is for:

  • The certified Advanced Diver looking to expand their knowledge of decompression theory and diving techniques
  • The certified Advanced Diver who is interested in extending their bottom time
  • The certified Advanced Diver who has interest in moving forward with technical diving education

Course prerequisites:

  • Minimum age 18
  • Minimum certification of Advanced Adventure Diver, Advanced Diver, or equivalent
  • Proof of 25 logged open water dives

What you can expect to learn:

  • Decompression dive planning including:

    • Tables vs. personal dive computers
    • Emergency and contingency planning (equipment failure, omitted decompression, etc.)
  • Decompression diving procedures
    • Equipment selection
    • Pre-dive checks and drills
    • Stress analysis and mitigation
