COURSE LIST
TRIMIX DIVING








For divers wishing to explore the depths beyond the limits of recreational diving, Trimix is the clear choice. A breathing mixture of oxygen, helium and nitrogen, Trimix allows you to manage the risks of elevated oxygen concentrations and nitrogen narcosis, giving you a clear head when it really matters...

IANTD's range of Trimix training programs will develop your skills and knowledge of Trimix diving in a safe, progressive and controlled manner under the direct supervision of your IANTD Instructor.

Building upon your existing knowledge and skills, you'll discover the benefits of Trimix diving and learn to assess and manage the hazards associated with extended range diving. You'll develop your dive skills to safely and competently plan and conduct dives utilising Helium-based breathing gases. From Recreational Trimix to Expedition-level, IANTD's Trimix training programs are at the cutting edge...

IANTD RECREATIONAL
TRIMIX DIVER





The IANTD Recreational Trimix Diver program provides Sport Divers with a safer breathing medium within the depth limits of sport diving (39 msw/130 fsw), whilst utilising helium to give an Equivelent Narcotic Depth (END) of between 12 and 24 msw (40 and 80 fsw). The diver may elect to dive the 'mix' on IANTD Recreational Trimix tables or computers.

The IANTD Recreational Trimix Diver program may be taught as a single course or combined with a variety of IANTD Advanced or Specialty Diver programs. The program qualifies divers to perform no stop dives using Recreational Trimix Gas mixtures within the limits of the existing qualification level to a maximum depth limit of 39 msw (130 fsw).

The program covers all Recreational Trimix gas mixes from 28% to a maximum of 40% oxygen and Helium concentrations yielding an END no greater than 24 msw (80 fsw) emphasizing the use of 30/25 trimix.

COURSE DETAILS


Prerequisites:

  • Must be a qualified Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent and EANx Diver or take the EANx Diver course in conjunction with the Recreational Trimix Diver course
  • Must provide proof of a minimum of 15 logged dives
  • Must be a minimum of 15 years of age with a parent or guardian authorisation, or a minimum of 18 years of age without guardian approval
Equipment Requirements:

  • IANTD Recreational Trimix Diver Student Kit
  • Equipment used during this program must be appropriate for the environment and in good working order



IANTD ADVANCED
RECREATIONAL TRIMIX DIVER





The foundation program for safe self sufficient diving. The IANTD Advanced Recreational Trimix program covers the core skills from the technical diver training programs including the use of twinsets with central isolation manifolds and decompression skills and procedures using bottom mixes of Recreational Trimix with oxygen contents between 21% and 40% with a maximum pO2 of 1.5 bar, combined with a helium content to yeild an Equivelent Narcotic Depth (END) no greater than 24 msw (80 fsw).

An essential component of this program is equipment configuration which is covered in a series of lectures and practical workshops. The aim being to construct a safe self sufficient equipment configuration that is streamlined, accessible and promotes familiarity. Theory covered includes the END concept, oxygen physiology, oxygen tracking, the use of EANx as a decompression gas, gas switching techniques, partial pressures and best mixes.

This program qualifies divers to dive to 48 msw (160 fsw) and to perform decompression stops utilising EANx decompression mixtures with an oxygen concentration no greater than 1.5 pO2 for a maximum duration of 15 minutes.

COURSE DETAILS


Prerequisites:

  • Must be qualified as an IANTD Recreational Trimix Diver or Nitrox Diver and IANTD Deep Diver with proof of a minimum of 30 logged dives or sufficient experience to satisfy the instructor that the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training
  • Must be a minimum of 15 years of age with a parent or guardian authorisation, or a minimum of 18 years of age without guardian approval
Equipment Requirements:

  • IANTD Advanced Recreational Trimix Diver Student Kit
  • A twinset with isolation manifold
  • A safety or decompression gas cylinder rigged as either a pony or stage cylinder. Gas cylinders must be oxygen clean and oxygen serviceable where needed



IANTD NORMOXIC
TRIMIX DIVER





The IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver program is designed to train divers who wish to dive to depths between 39 and 60 msw (130 and 200 fsw), but do not wish to breathe air below 39 msw (130 fsw). Trimix affords a means of managing nitrogen narcosis by reducing the Equivelent Narcotic Depth (END) to a maximum of 36 msw (120 fsw).

The IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver program includes academic lectures, confined water skills development and open water dives using air, EANx or Trimix using one gas switch. Gas switching computers can be used (and are recommended) but IANTD tables must be used as a backup.

This program qualifies divers to perform Trimix dives to a maximum depth of 60 msw (200 fsw) using custom bottom mixes with a minimum oxygen content of 19% and a maximum of two decompression cylinders.

COURSE DETAILS


Prerequisites:

  • Must be qualified as an IANTD Advanced EANx Diver or IANTD Advanced Recreational Trimix Diver
  • Must provide proof of a minimum of 100 logged dives, of which at least 30 were deeper than 27 msw (90 fsw) or sufficient experience doing technical dives to satisfy the instructor that the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training
  • Must be a minimum of 18 years of age
