Tec 200 - Decompression Diver
Taking the properly prepared technical novice to the first level of true technical diving, this program trains the diver to a maximum training depth of one hundred fifty feet using Oxygen Enriched Air blends for bottom mixes and up to 50% O2 mix as a single accelerated decompression gas. A thorough academic session and review of theory provides the diver with excellent comprehension of Decompression Illness and Oxygen Toxicity concepts and as a result, enables them to confidently design dive plans that further reduce risks of DCI and O2 Toxicity. The in-water skills and exercises introduce the student diver to innovative techniques in survival, self-sufficiency, and proper decompression management.
