On this course you will learn to plan and conduct dives using nitrox mixes with up to 80 per cent oxygen as a deco gas, using a stage cylinder, and you will practise the skills needed to become a more self-reliant diver.
You will develop your knowledge of accelerated decompression diving, including:
Diving physics and physiology
Kit configuration to achieve redundancy and self-reliance
Using the BSAC Ox-stop tables
Practical stage-cylinder diving techniques, including regulator switching, and run-time management
Dive profile planning for more adventurous diving, including gas selection and run-time schedules
The Accelerated Decompression Procedures course includes four theory sessions, a dry practical session, and a dive-planning session. It also includes a sheltered-water lesson, and two open-water dives with a total duration of no less than 60 minutes (to a maximum depth of 35m or within your qualification), to ensure that you have plenty of in-water time to practise the skills and discipline needed for accelerated decompression diving.
This is a continually assessed course during which students must reach the required performance standards.
