Mixed Gas Trimix Diver Course in Thailand
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech would like to congratulate Paw Mullit and Phill Clegg from their BSAC Sports Mixed Gas and Explorer Mixed Gas diver course conducted over 5 days on Koh Tao Island by BSAC Explorer Mixed Gas Instructor Ash Dunn.
The BSAC Sports mixed course introduces divers to mixed gas diving using open circuit dive equipment. It teaches experienced divers to use mixed gas to expand their current skills to be able to dive a maximum depth of 50 metres using the most appropriate gas mix. The course uses gas mixes of oxygen greater than or equal to 20% and helium up to 30%. This course is designed for diving in conditions where complex air based diving isn’t recommended beyond 40m and provides a great foundation for further exploration. After completing the sports module the divers progressed on to the explorer module which allows the divers to be exposed to the standard normoxic mixes.
The BSAC Explorer Mixed Gas; You can extend your mixed gas diving skills and depth certification with this course. It teaches experienced open circuit divers to use mixed gas to expand their current o be able to dive a maximum depth of 60 metres. The course uses gas mixes of oxygen greater than or equal to 18% and helium up to 35%.
The BSAC curriculum is current as these courses have been revamped this year with up to date manuals, theory and academics which are relevant to todays trimix diving. The 8 dive combined course exposed the divers to a varied amount of conditions which was the culmunation of effort applied since their Advanced Nitrox and Decompresssion Procedures course from TDI.
Well done guys, welcome to the club!
