This  Course qualifies divers to use enriched air nitrox from EAN 21 through EAN 100 to a depth of 40 metres/130 feet during dives that do not require staged decompression. Often taught in conjunction with the TDI Decompression Procedures course, this can be considered the foundation of your technical scuba diving skill-set. Advanced Nitrox Scuba Diver is also a great course for those wanting to extend your bottom times in shallower depths such as scientific diver, and a must for those interested in becoming SCR or CCR divers. The course cover topics like...

Equipment requirements
Dive planning
Oxygen toxicity tracking
Blending methods

You will use the TDI Advanced Nitrox Diving manual for your course, which explains in an easy to understand practical manner the complex information that Advanced Nitrox divers need to know. 
Prerequisites:  18 years old, TDI Nitrox Diver or Equivalent, 25 logged dives.

Open Water Dives:
