TDI Advanced Nitrox Course

High mixes of oxygen used to cheat decompression in Thailand

Koh Tao, Thailand

Big Blue Tech celebrates the graduation of Thomas Lanik from his TDI Advanced Nitrox course which concluded over 4 dives and 3 days on Koh Tao Island in Thailand.

The Advanced Nitrox Course teaches the student the skills required to use high mixes of oxygen combined with technical diving equipment to avoid decompression and extend their diving limits for much longer no-decompression dives.

Thomas learned how to handle the high mixes of oxygen and the proper procedures for switching to gas at depth and handling stage cylinders at depth. Thomas also learned about gas management, advanced dive planning and task loading associated with complex technical dives.

Thomas will remain with Big Blue Tech and continue to gain experience in preparation for his Decompression Procedures course in the future. He’s already signed up to our wreck trip on Friday to give him exposure to the benefits of technical diving.
