The IANTD Advanced Nitrox Diver course is designed to extend the use of Nitrox for sports diving while introducing the concepts of accelerated decompression.
Upon certification, you will be qualified to dive to 42msw using EANx with a fraction of oxygen between 21% and 40%. You will also be qualified to perform limited decompression using EANx mixtures up to and including 100% Oxygen to a maximum PO2 of 1.50ATA.
You should hold an EANx Diver qualification and a Deep Diver qualification or sufficient experience to satisfy us that you can continue at this level of training. You should be comfortable in the water and have competence completing basic diving skills (mask skills, DSMB deployment etc.).
You will be provided with the IANTD Advanced Nitrox Diver Student Kit, including tables for dive planning. In addition you will need the following equipment: Manifolded twin set (in test & oxygen service), primary and back up regulators, primary buoyancy device, dive computer / depth timer, basic dive kit (inc. SMB & Reel / Spool and a slate or notebook) and a decompression stage cylinder and regulator (both in oxygen service). We recommend aluminium stage cylinders, and these can be provided for the course if required.

This price includes the training and materials outlined above. Certification costs are also included (providing certification criteria are met).

The IANTD Advanced Nitrox Diver course runs over 4 days. Day 1 is spent in the classroom where you will complete theory sessions, classroom practical problems and equipment workshops. Day 2 is spent at the dive site completing confined water and skills dives. This is a chance to make tweaks and adjustments on your skills and equipment following the previous day’s sessions.
