A custom program developed to enable divers who thirst for deeper dives and wish to maximize the safety of these ventures. This course allows the transition from depths of 40 msw to depths of 51 msw.
The student will become proficient in tracking oxygen exposures for both CNS and whole body toxicity, through awareness of EADs and minute by minute gas planning including the use of custom blend mixtures and the use of EANx and oxygen for decompression. Confined water and five dives are included in the course.
It is skill intense and all past students who have completed the course are impressed by the magnitude of their increased dive performance. This course is a pre-requisite for Trimix Diver.
