The Decompression Procedures course is where you step beyond sport diving and become a technical diver. One of the basic tenets of recreational scuba diving is that you can abort the dive at any time and make a normal ascent to the surface. In the Deco Procedures course, you will learn how to plan and execute dives to a maximum depth of 150' that require staged decompression. You will also learn about the specialized equipment and techniques required to accomplish decompression dives.
- plan and execute dives to a maximum depth of 150' that require staged decompression,
- utilize a modest amount of helium in your breathing gas to manage nitrogen narcosis, and
- optimize your ascent schedule by using oxygen-rich gasses to aid decompression.
The combination course can be taught entirely at the quarry. Better yet, we can begin at the quarry and complete the course dives on a Great Lakes charter. What better way to complete your transition to technical diving than by visiting an amazing shipwreck!
