During this 6 days we discus about, diving physics and physiology, dive equipment – configurations and dive planning (including the use of decompression software).

A large emphasize is laid on gas management, team diving and self discipline. The theory will be finished with an exam where a minimum score of 80% is required.

8 Confined water skills and a minimum of 4 open water dives will be made including 1 non-decompression and 1 decompression dive between 30 and 42 meter.

During the open water dives we will practice a variety of dive techniques including gas switch training to a decompression gas.

The open water dives will be made with EANx mixtures between 22 and 40%, stops are made with EANx mixtures between 41 and 50%.

* Where needed the course progress will be evaluated by using modern UW video techniques.
