Accelerated Decompression Procedures

 

Accelerated Decompression Procedures

Longer, safer bottom times and optimum decompression using rich mixes

Building on the foundation of Nitrox knowledge contained within Ocean Diver and Sports Diver training, the course develops this knowledge and in particular highlights the benefits that can be gained from using high oxygen mixtures to improve the efficiency of off gassing during decompression stops. This course takes your diving to a higher level.

Entry requirement
Entry level is BSAC Sports Diver who has completed the 2007 syllabus (with nitrox content) and has been endorsed as a Nitrox Diver, plus 20 additional dives including depth experience to 30 metres.
Alternatively, applicants must hold an acceptable diving and nitrox qualification with another agency which equates to the above standards. All students must hold gold standard buoyancy from the Buoyancy and Trim BSAC workshop.

What you’ll learn
The Accelerated Decompression Procedures course has a mix of classroom-based and practical lessons, teaching you:

• Knowledge of safe diving using Nitrox and accelerated decompression techniques
• Use of gas mixes up to 80% oxygen
• New concepts and skills
• Dive planning

Learning materials
Your course pack includes all the learning materials you need for the course. The pack includes: ‘Ox-Stop decompression tables’ (plus ‘Nitrox tables’ unless already BSAC Advanced Nitrox Diver), the ADP course manual and a Qualification Card application.

 

Sport Mixed Gas Diver

Sport Mixed Gas Diver 50m

Are you an experienced diver but want to extend your range to 50m on open circuit?

The benefit of using gas mixes containing helium is controlling to an extent, the effect of nitrogen narcosis. The narcotic effect of nitrogen becomes debilitating as depth increases. Controlling the narcotic effect of the gas at depth enables improved awareness, therefore safer than deep air diving.

This course introduces divers to mixed gas diving using open circuit dive equipment. It teaches experienced divers to use mixed gas to expand their current skills to be able to dive a maximum depth of 50 metres using the most appropriate gas mix. The course uses gas mixes of oxygen greater than or equal to 20% and helium less than or equal to 30%.

Entry requirement
This course is open to all BSAC Sports Diver (or acceptable alternative) with depth qualification to 35 metres with 60 logged dives. Also be a BSAC Advanced Nitrox Diver or BSAC Accelerated Decompression Procedures Diver (or equivalent).

What you’ll learn
• Theory of mixed gas diving
• Equipment and Decompression System
• Physiology
• Practical diving techniques

Learning materials
Your course pack includes all the learning materials you need for the course. The pack includes the Sport Mixed Gas Diver course manual and a Qualification Card application.

Explorer Mixed Gas Diver

Explorer Mixed Gas Diver 60m


Are you an experienced diver but want to extend your range to 60m on open circuit?

The benefit of using gas mixes containing helium is controlling to an extent, the effect of nitrogen narcosis. The narcotic effect of nitrogen becomes debilitating as depth increases. Controlling the narcotic effect of the gas at depth enables improved awareness, therefore safer than deep air diving.

You can extend your mixed gas diving skills and depth certification with this course. It teaches experienced open circuit divers to use mixed gas to expand their current o be able to dive a maximum depth of 60 metres.  The course uses gas mixes of oxygen greater than or equal to 18% and helium less than or equal to 35%.

Entry requirement
This course is open to all BSAC Sports Mixed Gas divers (or acceptable alternative) with 30 logged dives in the 30 to 50 metre range.

What you’ll learn
• Extending open-water skills
• Equipment preparation
• Dive planning
• Deeper diving

Learning materials
Your course pack includes all the learning materials you need for the course. The pack includes the Explorer Mixed Gas Diver course manual and a Qualification Card application.

Advanced Mixed Gas Diver

Advanced Mixed Gas Diver 80m
Are you an experienced diver but want to extend your range to 80m on open circuit?

You can extend your mixed gas diving skills and depth certification to 80m on this course. It teaches experienced open circuit mixed gas divers to be able to dive a maximum depth of 80 metres. The course uses gas mixes of oxygen less than 18% and greater than 35% helium.

Entry requirement
This course is open to all BSAC Sport/Explorer Mixed Gas divers (or acceptable alternative) with 100 logged dives.

What you’ll learn
• Extending open-water skills
• Equipment preparation
• Dive planning
