C-Life Dive School
Celebrating quality and service for 22yrs
This course provides the skills for Deep Air Diving with the use of more than one Rich Nitrox Mix (up to 100%) as decompression gas. The course covers further equipment configuration for deep diving (more stages differing sizes), trapeze use, and the use of advanced decompression equipment (obligatory emergency extra deco gas for team). Plus new training skills when working with different 'Team' sizes to challenge your personal stress limits, Narcosis Management, improve and build experience required to competently utilize air for dives up to 55msw that require staged decompression, utilizing nitrox mixtures and oxygen during decompression.
An invaluable stepping stone course which introduces alot of skills commonly used on trimix dives particually for the UK diver. ERD progresses your skills to work towards the ultimate goal of Trimix. You will be gaining the required technical experience for this level and then be more ready for the next Trimix level step. The ERD course is also a min requirement for such areas as Bikini that offer 55m dives and do not have helium for Trimix divers.
