XR (Extended Range) Nitrox

This program bridges the gap between RECREATIONAL and TECHNICAL diving and provides the knowledge and experience required to independently plan and conduct limited decompression dives to a maximum depth of 40 meters, using nitrox mixtures up to 50%. This entry-level program introduces you to the Extended Range training techniques and skills, after which you will be qualified to dive up to 15 minutes of decompression and can be completed wearing a standard single-cylinder equipment configuration. You will earn the SSI Extended Range Nitrox Diving certification after completing this program.

The SSI XR NITROX course gives you an opportunity to see if going down the TECHNICAL track is what you want to do without having to make that all out commitment of investing in a twin system.

The XR Nitrox course is 2 evenings and 2 days. The first part includes theory with an equipment configuration workshop, a discussion about proper trim in diver position and the use of new equipment such as stage tanks. Over the second part you will complete a total of 4 boat dives up to depths of 40 metres. During these dives you will progress through skills to complete decompression stops of up to 15 minutes, proper stage tank use, as well as gas planning and management.

COST: $850
