TDI ADVANCED NITROX & DECO PROCEDURES
TDI Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures Diver: this program qualifies divers to dive to 45m and to perform required decompression stops.
WHAT DO I NEED
- Advanced Open Water Diver
- Nitrox Diver
- Have a minimum of 50 logged dives
- Be 18 years of age
- Appropriate theory for the course, which can be assigned upon payment. Please note, this costs an additional €130 not included in the course fee
You will complete the TDI Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures theory with your instructor, including content on oxygen exposure tracking for technical and accelerated gas switch dives, equipment set up and configuration, physiology and decompression as well as a gas switch decompression dive planning workshop.
You will then move to a suitable confined water site where you will learn the skills required to safely conduct decompression, gas switch dives using a twinset and stage cylinder. This session also gives you the perfect opportunity to put the equipment changes made in the workshop to the test.
The TDI Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures diver program culminates in 6 open water dives, during which you will demonstrate your ability to safely conduct at least four decompression dives to a maximum depth of 45 meters, including a switch to a rich nitrox mix to accelerate your required decompression.
On each these dives you will carry out the drills which technical diving makes possible, including shut downs which enable you to deal with catastrophic gas loss in a safe manner and end your dive in a controlled manner. In doing so you will be becoming a self sufficient diver able to deal with buddy separation and/or equipment malfunctions. Completion of the course requires passing the TDI Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures diver exam.
For holders of the TDI Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures, your next step is the TDI Trimix Diver program.
This qualifies divers to perform dives outside of training to depths up to 60m while using helium-based breathing mixtures (with at least 18% oxygen) to reduce the END to a maximum 40m and to perform required decompression stops using any mixture of EANx up to 100% oxygen.
To enrol onto this course, you will need to pay for your theory in advance so we can register and send you the course materials. You will need the materials to ensure you are prepared to start your training when you arrive at New Dimension Scuba for your course.
