Nitrox Advanced


The Nitrox Diver Advanced is your entry level into technical diving. You will learn the safe gas exchange underwater on bottom-and Dekomix and the use of highly concentrated nitrox mixtures or pure oxygen as deco gas. Here is the special emphasis on the safe handling of the additional equipment such as stage tank, buoy and reel, and the proper configuration and arrangement of the entire diving equipment.

In theory, we teach you the safe planning of these dives, the needed gas management and legal regulations that you have to consider when oxygen enriched mixtures. You will learn about the necessary equipment needed and the benefits and dangers of diving with oxygen-enriched gases . In addition to traditional dive tables and dive computers which support the gas exchange you will learn the creation of Run-Time and decorative tables on computers with special software.

Important: Within the training no decompression dives will be done!
