Technical Diver

This Program is designed to train divers to conduct dives to depths between 100 fsw (30 msw) and, at the instructor’s option, up to 170 fsw (51 msw) using custom blend breathing gas mixtures. To provide greater understanding of custom blend breathing gas mixtures, a complete knowledge of the limits of any EANx mixture, and the use of EANx and oxygen for decompression. The knowledge and skills taught in this program are more than adequate to qualify divers to perform dives outside of training up to 170 fsw (51 msw).
