Trimix Open Water Dives

  1. The PSAI Trimix Diver Course consists of 3 phases.
  2. A minimum of (4) helium based dives (with oxygen content of 18% or great) are required for Level 1 - Trimix Fundamentals certification to 60m. With a student to instructor ratio of 3:1
  3. An additional (2) dives are required for Level 2 - Expedition Trimix certification to 73m. With a student to instructor ratio of 3:1
  4. Finally, a third set of (2) dives are required for Level 3 - Explorer Trimix certification to 100m. With a student to instructor ratio of 3:1
  5. To achieve certification, one dive in each phase MUST be within 3m of the desired certification level. (However, no dives are to exceed the planned target depth).

TDI - Trimix Diver (60m) £460 - 5 Days

 

As your motivation to explore progresses you will find that you may want to go deeper to dive that wreck that is part of history or that cave system that you have read so much about. One of the major limiting factors of going deeper is narcosis; TDI’s Trimix Diver course shows how to minimize the effects of narcosis by adding helium to offset the nitrogen in your breathing gas.

 

While taking the Trimix Diver course your TDI Instructor will teach you how to plan and execute dives utilizing as little as 18 percent oxygen and diving to maximum depth of 60msw with a blend of helium appropriate for the planned depth.
