This Program is designed to extend the diver’s knowledge in the use of EANx for Sport diving. It further develops diving skills and provides a greater understanding of the EANx concept of diving.

The Program employs EANx mixes up to 1.5 PO2 .

This program qualifies divers to do dive to 42 msw and do decompression stops required dives up to 15 minutes.

Must be qualified as an IANTD EANx Diver and IANTD Deep Diver with proof of a minimum of 30 logged dives or sufficient experience to satisfy the instructor that the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training.

Must be a minimum of 15 years of age with a parent or guardian authorization, or a minimum of 18 years of age without guardian approval.

All lectures completed with IANTD Course-specific Slides pertaining to the theory in the IANTD Advanced EANx Diver Student Kit.

This Program must include a minimum of 120 minutes of OW bottom time completed within four (4) dives, two (2) of which must be to depths between 30 msw and 42 msw. If combined with a Deep Diver Program, the total dive time for both Programs must include a minimum of 160 minutes completed within 6 or more dives. Even if the time and skill requirements are met within fewer than 6 dives, the minimum 6 dives must be made. If combined with a Deep Diver Program 3 dives must be made to depths between 30 msw and 42 msw.

Students are taught the use of EANx mixtures for the non decompression portions of the dive. To teach the fundamentals of safety and decompression stops EANx mixtures that contain 1.5 PO2 for decompression may be used. This too is calculated at the deepest depth to which the gas will be switched.

This Program is designed to train divers to conduct dives to depths between 30 msw and, at the instructors option, up to 51 msw using custom blend breathing gas mixtures; and to provide greater understanding of custom blend breathing gas mixtures, a complete knowledge of the limits of any EANx mixture, and the use of EANx and oxygen for decompression.

The knowledge and skills taught in this program are more than adequate to qualify divers to perform dives outside of training up to 54 msw.

Must be qualified as an IANTD Advanced EANx Diver.

Must provide proof of a minimum of 100 logged dives, of which at least 30 were deeper than 27 msw or sufficient experience doing technical dives to satisfy the instructor that the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training.

To complete the course within the minimum specified dives

This Program is designed to train those who wish to dive to depths between 39 msw and 60 msw, but who do not wish to breathe air below 39 msw. Trimix affords a means of reducing narcosis on dives to such depths.

The knowledge and skills taught in this program are more than adequate to qualify divers to perform Trimix Dives outside of training up to 60 msw.

Must be qualified as an IANTD Advanced EANx Diver. Divers qualified as Technical Diver, see note below under Program Content section.

Must provide proof of a minimum of 100 logged dives, of which at least 30 were deeper than 27 msw or sufficient experience doing technical dives to satisfy the instructor that the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training

 


This Program is designed for those individuals already involved in deep diving activities, but is not intended to be used as an enticement to divers who are content to remain in Sport or EANx diving limits.

Trimix affords a safer means for deep-water exploration for divers who dive deep or perform with a clear head at depth. The IANTD Trimix Diver Program requires the diver to be self-sufficient/reliant.

The knowledge and skills taught in this program are more than adequate to qualify divers to perform Trimix Dives outside of training up to 100 msw.

This Program is designed to train competent divers in the safer use and technology of CCR for dives requiring up to 15 minutes of decompression. It is also especially useful to train divers who wish to dive up to 48 msw if using diluent with helium or 42 msw if using air as a diluent. The training requirements here-in are IANTD minimums.

Must be an IANTD Advanced EANx or Advanced Recreational Trimix Diver or equivalent. (May be taken in conjunction.)
