The Intro to TECH Course is an introductory course that expands on recreational training by improving dive planning methods, in-water skills, and streamlining existing gear configurations in a controlled and fun learning environment.
Rebreathers are intriguing. They’re cutting-edge dive technology. And that's exatly why you always wanted to try one? The Discover Rebreather program lets you dive with a technical closed circuit rebreather (CCR) in controlled conditions with our CCR Instructor. You'll discover how quiet diving can be without bubbles and quickly learn how different buoyancy control is. A Discover Rebreather experience is an ideal opportunity to give rebreathers a try before you sign up for a full course.
This ANDP course examines the theory, methods, and procedures of planned stage decompression diving and is designed to combine the Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures course into one course. The objective is to train divers how to plan and conduct a standard staged decompression dive not exceeding a max. depth of 45m. The most common equipment requirements, equipment set-up, utilization of enriched air nitrox mixes or oxygen for decompression, and decompression techniques are presented.
Certain areas of the world provide spectacular dives at depths deeper than 40m but you may not have access (or very limited access) to helium. The Extended Range Diver Course provides the training and experience necessary including proper techniques, equipment requirements, and hazards of deep air diving, to competently utilize air for dives up to 55m that require staged decompression, using nitrox mixtures or oxygen during decompression. This way you don’t have to miss those dives!
Are you looking to expand your depth range? Do you want to reduce narcosis during deep dives? Then this course could be your next step! One of the major limiting factors of going deeper is narcosis; this course shows how to minimize the effects of narcosis by adding helium to offset the nitrogen in your breathing gas. Your Instructor will teach you how to plan and execute dives utilizing as little as 18 percent oxygen and diving to a maximum depth of 60 m with a blend of helium appropriate for the planned depth.
This is the entry-level certification course for recreational divers wishing to utilize the Explorer rebreather. The objective of this course is to train recreational divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for using the Explorer rebreather. Upon successful completion of this course, graduates may engage in non decompression diving activities utilizing the Explorer to a maximum depth of 40 metres, not to exceed the maximum depth of the diver’s current certification, without decompression, utilizing nitrox mixes of 32 – 40%
The CCR Air Diluent Course is your first step into closed circuit rebreather diving and your first truly quiet dive experience! Using the latest technology in CCRs can maximize your gas supply and provide an optimum breathing gas for any depth by maintaining a constant partial pressure of oxygen. It’s like having a nitrox blending machine on your back!
Are you an open circuit technical diver looking to cross over to the “silent” side? Or maybe you are a CCR Air Diluent Diver looking to progress to the next level? Either way, the CCR Air Diluent Decompression Course is the next step. Using the latest technology in CCR’s can maximize your gas supply and provide an optimum breathing gas for any depth by maintaining a constant partial pressure of oxygen. Like having a blending station on your back, a CCR is the ultimate tool for technical divers.
The Mixed Gas CCR Diver course is your next step into closed circuit rebreather diving, it is your opportunity to explore a little deeper. Using the latest in technology CCR’s maximize your gas supply and provide the optimum breathing gas for any depth by maintaining a constant partial pressure of oxygen (PPO2). During the dives, your Instructor will teach you all the necessary skills to conduct CCR dives utilizing helium as a diluent gas and oxygen levels as low as 16 percent to a maximum depth of 60m.
