Product Description

Extended Range Nitrox

In the Nitrox Diver course you were introduced to the basic principles for selecting breathing gas blends based upon your intended dive depths and duration. The XR Nitrox diver course will begin with a review of those principles and expand your knowledge of diving physics and physiology.

You will examine the process of gas absorption into, and elimination from, the diver’s body and the implications for divers who plan to exceed the no decompression limits. Theory will be simplified and practical examples are provided so that you can understand why the concepts are important. Special conditions that affect diver safety are also presented.

Your instructor will work with you to make certain that your equipment is assembled properly and adjusted for a personal fit. Prior to the hands-on, Equipment Configuration session, your instructor will give you a complete list of the equipment that you should bring. It is very important that you have every item on the list.

This program qualifies you to dive to forty metres using nitrox mixtures of up to 50%, and fifteen minutes of back gas decompression using a one, stage decompression gas.

To complete the course, you will make a minimum of four Extended Range Nitrox dives with required decompression stops to a maximum of fifteen minutes and a maximum Nitrox mixture of 50%.

You will plan your dives using PC or mobile device based software to simulate dives that require multiple decompression stops.
You will use stage cylinders, make gas switches, and execute actual decompression stops.

Your instructor must inspect and approve each equipment component before it can be used in-water.
Do not alter or substitute equipment during training sessions unless, it has been authorised by your instructor.

To be a minimum of 16 years old.
All students under 18 years of age will be required to provide signed parent or guardian consent form.
