What you will learn:

Equipment Requirements (in addition to basic equipment)

There are some wonderful locations to dive that may not always have trimix blending available due to local regulations or cost or other reasons.  This course provides training and experience required to competently utilize air for dives up to 55 metres /180 feet that requires staged decompression, utilizing nitrox mixtures or oxygen during decompression. The objective of this course is to train divers in the proper techniques, equipment requirements, and hazards of deep air diving to a maximum of 55 metres / 180 feet utilizing nitrox mixtures or oxygen for staged decompression.
