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.
Decompression Procedures is usually taught in conjunction with Advanced Nitrox Diver so you can get the benefits of oxygen-rich gas mixes while decompressing. Together, these courses form the foundation of your technical diving career.
