Advanced Nitrox Diver

This 2.5 day course examines the use of EANx 21 through to 100 percent oxygen for optimal mixes to a depth of 45 msw. Subjects include physics, physiology, formula, equipment, dive tables, dive computers, dive planning, common mixing procedures and decompression. The objective of this course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for utilizing EANx 21 through 100 percent oxygen for dives not requiring staged decompression. Decompression techniques may be combined with this course or with extended range course at the discretion of the instructor.

The following equipment is required - an alternative second stage attached to a primary regulator or a redundant scuba unit of 2 litres minimum, a submersible pressure gauge, a depth gauge and automatic bottom timer and/or dive computer, a buoyancy compensator with power inflator, an exposure suit adequate for the open water environment, a cylinder properly labeled and cleaned as required for EANx mixtures and access to oxygen analyzer (Instructor may supply).

The course requires a minimum of 6 classroom and briefing hours and in addition, there are 4 dives to appropriate depths. The Advanced Course has a prerequisite of 25 dives with an entry level nitrox course.

Minimum age: 15

The minimum certification level is two star/open water diver with 25 logged open water dives.

We recommend that you have done at least 6 dives below 30m prior to commencing the course. 

The course fee includes student manual, dives, fills and certification.
