     Prerequisites

    Must be qualified as an IANTD EANx Diver and IANTD Deep Diver with proof of a minimum of 30 logged dives or sufficient experience to satisfy the instructor that the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training
    Must be a minimum of 15 years of age with a parent or guardian authorization, or a minimum of 18 years of age without guardian approval

    Program (3 days)

    Academic sessions + examination

    4 dives (minimum 120′ of dive)

The foundation program for safe self-sufficient diving. The IANTD Advanced Nitrox program covers the core skills from the technical diver training programs including the use of dual outlet single cylinders or twinsets with central isolation manifolds and decompression skills and procedures using bottom mixes upto 40% nitrox and decompression mixes upto 100% oxygen to a maximum depth of 42 msw (140 fsw).

An essential component of this program is equipment configuration which is covered in a series of lectures and practical workshops. The aim being to construct a safe self-sufficient equipment configuration that is streamlined, accessible and promotes familiarity. Theory covered includes the EAD concept, oxygen physiology, % CNS 02 & pulmonary toxicity tracking, the use of EANx as a decompression gas, gas switching techniques, partial pressures and best mixes.

The foundation program for safe self-sufficient diving. The IANTD Advanced Recreational Trimix program covers the core skills from the technical diver training programs including the use of twinsets with central isolation manifolds and decompression skills and procedures using bottom mixes of Recreational Trimix with oxygen contents between 21% and 40% with a maximum pO2 of 1.5 bar, combined with a helium content to yield an equivalent Narcotic Depth (END) no greater than 24 msw (80 fsw).

An essential component of this program is equipment configuration which is covered in a series of lectures and practical workshops. The aim being to construct a safe self-sufficient equipment configuration that is streamlined, accessible and promotes familiarity. Theory covered includes the END concept, oxygen physiology, oxygen tracking, use of EANx as a decompression gas, gas switching techniques, partial pressures and best mixes.

  • Normoxic Trimix Diver (IANTD)
  • -
    Consult us
  • Prerogatives​

    Use a bottom mixes of Trimix with a minimum oxygen content of 19% and a maximum of two decompression tanks
    maximum depth of 60 msw (200 fsw)

    Prerequisites

    Open circuit​

    IANTD Advanced EANx Diver or higher or equivalent
    Must be a minimum of 18 years old
    Must provide proof of a minimum of 100 logged dives, of which at least 30 were deeper than 90 fsw (27 msw)

    Rebreather​

    Must be a qualified IANTD Rebreather Diver
    Must be a minimum of 18 years old
    Must provide proof of a minimum of 100 logged dives of which at least 25 rebreather dives and 50 hours on the unit

    Program (5 days)

    Academic sessions + examination
    Confined Water Sessions
    4 dives (minimum 300′ of dive)

The IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver program is designed to train divers who wish to dive to depths between 39 and 60 msw (130 and 200 fsw), but do not wish to breathe air below 39 msw (130 fsw). Trimix affords a means of managing nitrogen narcosis by reducing the equivalent Narcotic Depth (END) to a maximum of 36 msw (120 fsw).

The IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver program includes academic lectures, confined water skills development and open water dives using air, EANx or Trimix using one gas switch. Gas switching computers can be used (and are recommended) but IANTD tables must be used as a backup.

This program is designed for those individuals already involved in deep diving activities but wish to develop the skills, ability and knowledge to enable safe diving in the trimix depth range. It includes extensive dive planning workshops covering all bailout scenarios, run time management and choice of gases. The diver’s skills are developed to the highest level to promote self-sufficiency and safety whilst maintaining the ability to operate within a team.

The program includes academic lectures, confined water skills development and open water dives. Gas switching computers can be used (and are recommended) but IANTD tables must be used as a backup.
