TDI Advanced Nitrox Course

Are you looking to expand your diving into the world of Technical Diving? Maybe you’re a wreck diver or photographer looking to stay in the water a little longer? At Scuba Murcia you can enroll on the TDI Advanced Nitrox Course which qualifies you to use enriched air nitrox from 21% through 100% Oxygen and also dive to a maximum depth of 40 metres/130 feet during dives that do not require staged decompression. Often taught in conjunction with the TDI Decompression Procedures course, this is considered the foundation of your technical diving career. This course also teaches you the correct procedures for diving with Manifolded Twin Cylinders which is essential for additional Technical diving courses. TDI Advanced Nitrox is also a must for CCR divers and those considering Cave Diving.

Who this course is for

  • The certified nitrox diver looking to expand their understanding of nitrox mixtures containing more than 40% oxygen

  • The certified nitrox diver looking to expand their in-water skills

  • The certified diver who has interest in moving forward with technical diving education

  • The certified diver looking to dive Manifolded Twin tanks and their correct set up

Course prerequisites

(these requirements must be met prior to the start of the course):

  • Minimum age 18, 15 with parental consent

  • Minimum certification of TDI Nitrox Diver or equivalent

  • Proof of 25 logged open water dives

What you can expect to learn

Advanced Nitrox picks up where TDI Nitrox leaves off and offers a more in-depth look at diving with nitrox including:

  • Physics and physiology relating to diving with gas mixes containing more than 40% oxygen

  • Gas planning, dive tables, dive computers, oxygen limitations, nitrogen limitations

  • Equipment considerations, cylinder labeling, analyzing nitrox mixtures, gas blending procedures, and oxygen service ratings for using gases with more than 40% oxygen

Some skills you will complete in this course include

  • Demonstrate buoyancy control; ability to hover at fixed position in water column without moving hands or feet

  • Show good awareness of buddy and other team members through communication, proximity, and team oriented dive practices

  • Demonstrate the ability to manage free flow from primary regulator in controlled fashion, shut down cycle, and switch to back up regulator

  • Conduct appropriate safety stop while maintaining neutral buoyancy

  • Demonstrate the ability to share air with buddy as both recipient and donor in a controlled manner while maintaining position in the water column

  • Demonstrate correct body position; appropriate trim, such as horizontal/streamlined when moving forward

  • Demonstrate proper stress analysis with self and dive buddy
