Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the graudtaion of Anna Flam, Cameron Dunning and John Miles form their TDI Advanced Nitrox and Decomrpession procedures course conducted by TDI Instructor Ash Dunn over 5 days on Koh Tao Island off the coast of Thailand.
The focus of these combined courses is to train students to be successful in technical diving. These classes are taught as if they are a small piece to a much larger picture, not as entry level technical diving. These courses build the foundation for sound technical diving. What you will learn will be utilized in higher level trimix courses.
This is not a course to learn or re-learn fundamental diving skills. Students will be held to a higher level of performance not found in many technical diving courses.
Students are taught and evaluated, not only on skill proficiency, but control, leadership, situational awareness, teamwork, and judgement. Successful students will have a finesse that few divers have. You will finish this class with the confidence, competence, and comfort to be able to complete dives at this level of training prior to receiving a c-card.
This course requires a minimum of 5 days with 10 or more dives and involves a minimum 40 hours of instruction. Expect to dive every day with lectures in the afternoon and evening for each day. The majority of dives will be conducted in shallow water for critical skill evaluation. However, each day will get deeper as the class progresses. The final day is reserved for experience dives that will be at depth with a real decompression obligation.
Course content will include, but not limited to: enriched air Nitrox usage, decompression mixtures, diving physics & physiology, dive tables, advanced decompression theory, oxygen exposure/management, team diving procedures, and contingency planning.
This completes the training on Koh Tao for this group as we depart for Khao Sok National Park for their Trimix and Cavern course.
