SSI TXR Advanced Nitrox and Technical Foundations in Thailand
SSI (Scuba Schools International) TXR (Technical Extended Range) course delivered in Thailand
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the graduation Rikki Clarke, and one of our very own Recreational Instructors Dan Bolton, from their SSI TXR Advanced Nitrox and Technical Foundations courses conducted by Helen Artal and Yvonne Fries.
The combined courses were conducted over 5 days, and are the perfect introduction to Technical Diving. On land the students learned about advanced dive planning, gas requirements and oxygen management, as well as taking a deeper look into the physics, physiology, equipment, and decompression theory that are involved in Technical Extended Range Diving.
In the water the boys were taken back to basics in the confined session to get to grips with their new equipment, and learn the various skills required for the course. They then completed 6 open water training dives to depths between 30 and 42 meters using both air and nitrox, and executed dive plans including up to 15 minutes stage decompression.
The combined Advanced Nitrox and Technical Foundations course is ideal for divers looking to increase their knowledge and safety in the water, while extending both your depth and no-deco limits, in addition to giving you an introduction to Decompression diving.
