Tec Trimix 65

This course opens up the advantages of trimix to the diver, and divers are qualified to make multi-stop decompression dives that employ EANx and oxygen for accelerated decompression, and any trimix with an oxygen content of 18% or more.

They can dive to a maximum depth of 65 metres/210 feet.

What You’ll Learn

This course is for Tec 50 divers (or those holding a qualifying certification from another training organization). The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen).

You will:
• Plan and execute at least five dives using EANx and trimix blends
• Use decompression software to create custom dive tables and dive plans
