Lefty Lean, Righty Rich, Advanced Nitrox in Thailand
Technical diving intern progresses through advanced nitrox use.
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the graduation of James Foleher from the TDI Advanced Nitrox Course conducted over 3 days on Koh Tao island in Thailand by TDI Instructor James Thornton-Allan
The Advanced Nitrox course trains the diver to handle oxygen enriched air up to pure oxygen in combination with advanced dive planning to extend no decompression limits essentially diving deeper and longer then possible with normal scuba methods.
This is the first (1st) stage of training in the series of TDI’s tech diver development program. The objective of this course is to train the divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for utilizing Enriched air nitrox twenty one (21%) percent through to one hundred (100%) percent oxygen for dives not requiring staged decompression. To a depth of forty (40) msw, one hundred thirty (130) fsw this course can be combined with Decompression Procedures at the discretion of your instructor but this course was not combined.
James moves on to his TDI Decompression Procedures course as the next step in his internship.
