The IANTD Advanced Nitrox Program covers the core skills from the technical diver training programs including the use of dual outlet single cylinders, tek sidemount configurations* or twinsets with central isolation manifolds and decompression skills and procedures using bottom mixes up to 40% nitrox and decompression mixes up to 100% oxygen to a maximum depth of 40 msw (132 fsw).
An essential component of this program is equipment configuration which is covered in a series of lectures and practical workshops. The aim being to construct a safe self sufficient equipment configuration that is streamlined, accessible and promotes familiarity. Theory covered includes the EAD concept, oxygen physiology, % CNS 02 & pulmonary toxicity tracking, the use of EANx as a decompression gas, gas switching techniques, partial pressures and best mixes.
*The IANTD Tek Sidemount Diver Course can be taken in combination with this program.
- Must be qualified as an IANTD EANx Diver and IANTD Deep Diver with proof of a minimum of 30 logged dives.
- Must be a minimum of 15 years of age with a parent or guardian authorisation, or a minimum of 18 years of age without guardian approval.
Minimum Duration: 3 Days
This program qualifies divers to do dive to 40 msw (132 fsw) and perform decompression stops utilising EANx decompression mixtures with an oxygen concentration no greater than 1.5 pO2 for a maximum duration of 15 minutes.
