Why Do the Course?

This course will suit CCR divers who want the benefits of a clear head and recued gas density on deeper and longer dives. It opens up longer and safer deep dives whilst adding additional knowledge and skills to your CCR diving. It prepares you to take further technical training such as trimix diving or overhead courses such as cave or advanced wreck.

What’s Included

The course fee covers instructional time, manual, use of facilities including pool. Students are expected to pay any gas, boat costs and accomodation costs required to complete the course but we do have packages available. Only after the successful completion of the course do you pay your certification fee – “you pay for training – you earn the certification”

Normal dive kit plus a CCR with trimix unlocked with cells in date and kept properly serviced and maintained.
