NITROX DIVER (Ask for the original since:1985)


This program provides recreational divers a safer breathing medium for enjoying less fatigue dives in 40 fsw (12 msw) to 130 fsw (39 msw) depth range, more limit of non decompression 
time and more safety. The IANTD Nitrox Diver program is designed to provide recreational divers with a safer breathing medium for enjoying dives to a depth of 130 fsw (39 msw) using EAN 22 to EAN 40. The diver may elect to dive the mix on EANx tables or conservatively using their dive computers or air tables with an added margin of safety.



Course prerequisites
: Open water diver, or Cmas*.
 Includes: 2 dives, 2 classroom sessions, manual, Eanx tables 32. 36. Certification, mixes and tanks.


Theory: Introduction. Physiological implications of oxygen, Physics including Dalton's Law.

 Review of Dalton's Law from previous lecture. EAD Concept and Operational implications of oxygen and oxygen safety. Tank labeling. Gas Analysis.

Open water dives: 2 open water dives - practice dives plans, tanks analyzing, and labeling.

 
DEEP DIVER

This program has been developed to provide responsible training to divers who plan to dive to 130 fsw (39 msw) on air. The IANTD Deep Air Diver program trains divers in skills, performance, theory and planning of deep dives. This program remains within the commonly practiced depth of 130 fsw (39 msw). It is the first sanctioned program to provide proper international training in safe deep diving skills and performance. It is recommended that this program be taught in conjunction with the IANTD EANx Diver program.



To complete the IANTD Deep Diver program candidates will first complete an intensive water skill component involving both confined and open water dives. The confined water portion can be completed in a 90-120 minute session where rescue and stamina skills are challenged and developed. In the open water portion of the course, 4 to 6 dives will be conducted giving the candidate to develop and demonstrate the necessary skills, performance and ability to complete deep dives in challenging circumstances where stress is a factor.




We teach a total of 10 hours training program including: 

Theory, 1 confined water session, and open water dives. At the end of the course our students are well trained with a good technique and have fun diving.


Course prerequisites: 

Must be qualified as an IANTD Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent. Must provide proof of a minimum of 10 logged dives. Must be a minimum of 15 years of age with a parent or guardian authorization, or a minimum of 12 years of age for Junior 

Diver qualification, or a minimum of 18 years of age without guardian approval.


Theory:  three independent lectures

Physiological and psychological considerations for deep diving, oxygen, eating for diving, nitrogen narcosis, hypothermia, decompression theory, introduction to deep diving breathing techniques, equipment configuration, dive planning and gas management.
Confined water dive: 
a 3 hours session including: equipment configuration. For the IANTD Deep Diver Course students will have already demonstrated mastery of basic and advanced open water skills, and will now be developing the necessary skills to dive between 60 and 130 fsw (18 and 39 msw).
Open Water DivesIn the open water portion of the course, 4 to 6 dives will be conducted to allow  the candidate to develop and demonstrate necessary skills, performance and ability to complete deep dives in challenging circumstances where stress is a factor.

  RESCUE DIVER 


This course teaches effective diver rescue and first aid skills.

We combine lectures, confined water skills, shore diving, and boat diving. We teach a complete and a realistic rescue class. 


Those interested in taking an IANTD Rescue Diver Course must be excellent swimmers. It is this type of personal achievement standards that have set IANTD training programs apart from any other.


The IANTD Rescue Diver program is designed to develop proficiency in self and buddy rescue. Rescue diver training provides a high level of competency and awareness to divers using some basic problem and stress management techniques


To prepare divers to assist themselves and other divers in the event a problem occurs in the water. The IANTD Rescue Diver course will also teach divers how to avoid problems through preventative measures reducing the risk of diver stress and panic.


We teach a total of 20 hours training program including

Theory, 1 confined water session, and open water dives. 


Course prerequisites: 

Must be a qualified Advanced Open Water Diver in the discipline the student wishes to take (OC, SCR, CCR) or must provide proof of a minimum of 10 logged dives. 

Must be qualified in Diving First Aid, Oxygen Administrator and CPR. AED certification is recommended. Must be a minimum of 18 years of age.


Theory: 

Assessments and rescue techniques, respiratory system, circulatory system, decompression  related disorder

 treatment of DCI, the skeletal system, hypothermia, management of unconscious patient.

Confined water dive: a 3 hours session including: Personal rescue ability, buddy assist, divers and buddy rescue.
Open Water DivesIn the open water portion of the course, 4 dives will be conducted to allow the candidate to develop and demonstrate the necessary rescue divers skills.

 

Equipment Requirements


1. A sufficient quantity of gas will be carried by the diver to allow completion of the dive time requirements incorporating the correct gas management rule. For no-stop diving, ½ + 200 psig (14 bar); and for dives with stops or in overhead environments, the Rule of Thirds. 

2. A primary gas supply systems featuring an alternate second stage or alternate breathing source, or redundant gas system as specified in the Equipment Requirements for each Program.

3. A quick release weight ballast system (if appropriate).

4. Submersible pressure gauge.

5. Buoyancy control device (BCD), including a cylinder support system.

6. Mask, fins and snorkel (if appropriate).

7. Means of monitoring depth and bottom time. This can be done through the use of a depth gauge and bottom timer or a dive computer.

8. Submersible dive table must be used as backup to a dive computer or for control of the dive

9. Appropriate exposure suit for the environment in which the diver is being trained.

10. Slate and pencil. (not required in the Supervised Diver or OW Diver course).

11. Cutting tool or device.

12. Compass.

13. Surface alert device (whistle, diver alert, etc.) (not required in the Supervised Diver or OW Diver course).

14. Equipment is to be configured in a neat low-drag manner.
