CAVE DIVING TRAINING

cavern diver course

CAVERN DIVER

First step in the Overhead environment. You will learn all safety protocols within the daylight zone. 

Intro to cave diver course

INTRO TO CAVE DIVER

That’s it! this is the first step in the dark caves. You will learn how to do simple cave dives beyond daylight zone

full cave diving training

CAVE DIVER

Caves can be complex, especially in Mexico, you will now combine previously learned skills with complex navigation, and more.

INTRO TO TEC & SIDE MOUNT

Intro to Tech Diving training

INTRO TO TECH

Basics for tech diving in Backmount configuration: dive planning, water skills, gear configuration, streamlining, buoyancy and propulsion techniques

Side Mount Diving Training

SIDE MOUNT

Get familiar with the side mount for Tec divers wanting to learn the configuration or recreational divers taking their first steps into the Tec or cave diving world

Razor Side Mount Diving Course

RAZOR SIDE MOUNT

The Razor Side Mount course covers the basics for tech and cave diving further than basic courses. Then you can focus on the core of subsequent training in your Razor.

TECHNICAL DIVING TRAINING

 

TDI Nitrox Course

NITROX

A first approach to technical diving and the use of mixtures. And for those already Nitrox certified diver it is the opportunity to thoroughly review the basic principles and fundamental laws of physics used in diving.

ADVANCED NIRTOX

ADVANCED NITROX

You will learn the physics and physiology for diving with gas mixtures containing more than 40 % oxygen. This is the opportunity to further extend of your dive time without going into decompression limits.

DECO PROCEDURES

DECO PROCEDURES

In this course you will learn to plan and execute dives with decompression, choose your gas and the development of emergency plans.

DEEPER DIVING TRAINING

Extended range course

EXTENDED RANGE

Exciting dives down to 55m/180ft but helium is nowhere available? you will learn how to safely do these dives using air and deco gases.

TRIMIX DIVING

TRIMIX

Add helium to your diving. Go deeper, easier breathing, and reduce narcosis. It makes your diving a lot safer and opens a lot of possibilities down to 60m/200ft.

Technical diving training - Advanced Trimix diving

ADVANCED TRIMIX

Congratulations! you reached the top level of Open circuit training. Use mix with less than 17% O2 and as deep as 100m/330ft. And be among the most elite divers.

A stepping stone to greater diving!

The use of oxygen and oxygen enriched air mixture is critical to advenced applications in diving. This course will arm you with the knowledge and understanding of the risks and benefits associated with these gases.

You have been enjoying your recreational diving and you are ready to go a step further. Then the Advanced Nitrox course is a great introduction into the world of Technical Diving. During your course you will complete dives to 130ft/40m in the safest manner possible with no stage decompression and using Nitrox up to 100% oxygen. You will tune up your buoyancy control in a new configuration and of course work on stress mangament and problem solving. And also very important in technical diving you will start planning your dives.

This course combines perfectly with the Decompression Procedures course. This will be the foundation of your technical diving career and of course give you a better understanding of technical diving.

It is just the beginning of the progression into more advanced applications in diving.
