This course is for any diver certified as Open Water Diver or above. Over the course of two days, you will learn about the skills, techniques and knowledge necessary to dive to 40 metres.
All of our instructors are either decompression procedures instructors or at minimum certified at decompression procedures and cave diver levels, so you can be sure that you'll be taught by an instructor with a wealth of real-world knowledge, not just someone that has done 100 dives and passed and instructor exam.
Here at Reef2Ridge we believe the minimum standards are just that, the absolute minimum. So during the deep course, you will learn about gas and contingency gas planning, redundancy of gas including team bailouts and carrying a bailout cylinder. You will learn advanced buoyancy and emergency decompression techniques. You will learn how to diagnose narcosis in yourself and spit it in your team, how to handle emergencies and what to do when things go wrong. Most importantly, you'll learn how to put all the correct techniques, procedures and skills into action before something goes wrong.
