TEC Diving

Technical diving involves diving beyond the limits of recreational diving. Participating in a tec course requires additional experience, training and equipment. In recreational diving you use one tank while tec divers typically wear twin cylinders or sidemount cylinders, plus one or more additional ones under their arms, each with different gas blends.

The course is designed to extend your depth range capabilities utilizing trimix to a max depth of 75m.

Course Duration: 5 days Considerations: We will only accept students for this program after pre-assessment of their current technical diving certification and capabilities.  

DSAT GAS BLENDER
More people are diving with enriched air and this means the demand for enriched air fills is also increasing. However, there needs to be someone qualified to administer these fills to meet this demand. This is where the DSAT Gas Blender course comes in. It can result in one of two certifications: DSAT Gas Blender or DSAT Trimix Blender. Being a gas blender has significant advantages to your technical diving at any level, it gives you the confidence and understanding of the mixes you require to execute your dives.
Pre-requisites: PADI Enriched Air Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization) Minimum age: 18 years old Course Duration: 1 Day End Results: The DSAT Gas Blender course will train you as a qualified gas blender, allowing you to provide gas mixes to appropriately certified consumers. You'll learn the physical properties of oxygen, its associated hazards, handling requirements and what cleaning equipment is necessary. Finally, you will learn the five methods of obtaining the desired enriched air nitrox mix and the various methods used to obtain proper helium mixes. Considerations: You must hold an appropriate Trimix Diver Certification before becoming certified as a DSAT Trimix Blender. To update your certification will take an additional half a day.
