Decompression Procedures Course

As sport divers planned decompression is not something that we do or have been taught. The Decompression Procedures course prepares you for planned staged decompression diving. With a maximum operating depth of 45m/150 feet, this course is your first step beyond the normal sport diving limits. Your Instructor will provide you with valuable information and skills.


The topics covered are

Kit set-up, Equipment requirements, Decompression techniques, Decompression breathing gases, Gas management, Contingency planning.


The Decompressions Procedures course combined with the Advanced Nitrox course form the foundation of all other technical courses. After these two courses and some additional experience, the stage has been set for you to move onto additional technical levels. Some of the materials you will be using include the s, US Navy or Buhlmann Air Decompression Tables (made of vinyl for easy in-water use and storage)
