SSI TechXR comes to Thailand

Scuba Schools International (SSI) Technical Extended Range (TXR) prgrams come to Thailand

Koh Tao, Thailand –

Big Blue Tech will be hosting a SSI TechXR instructor and diver course starting on Monday the 15th of March until the 23rd of March.

This event will be conducted by SSI TechXR Instructor Trainer Ben Reymenants who is best known for his work for the chamber works in Thailand, developing technical diving in Maldives and holding world records for different diving activities from depth to environments including caves.

During this event Ben will be training Helen Artal (Big Blue Tech) Yvonne Fries (Big Blue Tech)  and Mikko Paasi (Koh Tao Divers) to become SSI TechXR Instructors. The instructor training portion is combined with the SSI TechXR diver level course for 2 students from various backgrounds.

SSI’s TechXR is a well founded Technical Diving program and it was created to take the recreational diver to an extreme level for their diving adventures.  Whether you are looking for the excitement of deep reef diving or the thrill of exploring wrecks located well past 40m (130 feet), SSI TechXR is a way to learn the training and experience necessary for you to complete every new adventure with confidence and skill.

Whatever your current diving ability, extended range diving will challenge you with environments, depths, bottom times, procedures, and equipment not commonly encountered by recreational divers. You will be experiencing advanced levels that require extensive knowledge, enhanced diving skills, and considerable experience.

SSI has developed these specific learning tools: a manual, interactive CD-ROM, Technical DiveLog and Technical Dive Slates. In addition, you rinstructor may also require you to have a personal copy of an advanced dive planning software program.  The courses available for you to take are: Advanced Nitrox, Technical Foundations, Decompression Procedures, Normoxic Trimix, and Advanced Decompression Procedures. You can take each of these courses individually or all at once.

You will develop confidence and comfort with these new skills through repetition and supervised experiences. Training will be designed to match your goals and objectives. SSI′s signature training method′s the “SSI Diver Diamond “and “Comfort Through Repetition” have been applied to keep the programs consistent and provide the same high quality education as other SSI products.

Big Blue Tech will be publishing updates and news as the course progess and plans to release SSI TechXR Programs to the general public at the end of the month.
