A PADI Tec Trimix diver is qualified to use air, EANx, oxygen and trimix for multiple stop decompression dives using two or more decompression gases and to dive to depths of 90 meters / 300 feet using hypoxic trimix.
For the extreme diver ready to further explore the world of technical deep diving, the gas of choice is trimix. The PADI Trimix course takes you to the outer edges of technical deep diving, opening the door to pristine dive sites few divers ever see.
You’ll need to be certified as a PADI Tec Deep Diver (the PADI Tec Deep course can be offered in conjunction with our PADI Trimix course) or have a qualifying certification in deep decompression diving using air/enriched air from another organization. The PADI Trimix Diver course is intended to extend the depth range available to technical divers trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen on decompression dives beyond 50 metres/165 feet in open water.
The goals of the Trimix course are to train students to dive to 90 metres/300 feet using various trimix blends, enriched air and oxygen with open circuit scuba equipment. The course builds upon the fundamentals of technical diving learned in the ‘Tec Deep’ course and further trains students in the planning, motor skills and emergency contingency procedures required for technical trimix diving.
This course is taught along our beautiful local reefs, north side walls and outer sea banks, which gives our students the widest variety of diving environments possible to prepare them for their future trimix dives.
Academic knowledge is developed by independent study of the student diver ‘Trimix’ manual and ‘Tec Deep’ manual (where appropriate) and application through briefings, practical sessions, dive planning and completed knowledge reviews and tests. There is 1 water skills assessment dive and 6 open water training dives.
