The IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver program is designed to train divers who wish to dive to 60m using staged decompression. Trimix affords a means of managing nitrogen narcosis by reducing the Equivalent Narcotic Depth of a dive to assist comfort and safety.
The IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver program includes academic lectures, confined water skills development and open water dives.This program qualifies divers to perform Trimix dives to a maximum depth of 60m with a minimum oxygen content of 19% and a maximum of two decompression cylinders.
This class requires six days training and, as with all of our classes, we like experience dives to take place in the sea where UK weather permits. If you are unsure as to whether your experience makes you a good candidate for this class, feel free to contact us with any questions.
IANTD Technical Program Equipment Requirements:
There are few women active at the top of technical diving, but one of the most active is Clare Pooley.
Teaching for both GUE and IANTD, Clare Pooley can be found underwater anywhere from cold water deep wreck dives to the crystal clear Mexican caves, enjoying single tank reef dives through to mixed gas multi stage/scooter cave dives in the colder waters of France or here at home.
Clare teaches OC diving in the DIR style in the UK and in Europe, encouraging streamlined gear and good technique in all students whether they seek intro tech, trimix or cave certification.
Howard Payne is passionate about open circuit technical training and considers himself fortunate to have learned from visionary explorers Phil Short, Jarrod Jablonski and Richard Lundgren.
Now teaching exclusively for IANTD, Howard runs open circuit technical courses to normoxic trimix level both here in the UK and in the warm, clear waters of Malta.
Although he loves UK diving, even he would concede that there's nothing quite like running a mix course on a wreck like the Le Polynesien! Howard is currently involved with a deep wreck exploration project in Malta but he also has a long-standing love for cave diving.
Selecting and purchasing training can be daunting. Is it the right class for me? Will I be ready? Is the instructor right for me? Do I have enough experience? Will I like the diving? Will it be worth it? - all questions that went through my mind when I started out.
Instead of selling classes or certification, TechDiverUK sells diver training. You purchase a number of days and we will work on getting you where you want to be. Obviously we will give you an indication of how many days any class takes as a minimum and will do what we can to help you achieve the standard in that given time but if you need more, or want more time because you have come to us a little rusty or a little anxious then you can choose to set aside more time right at the start - or afterwards if you feel you need more instruction to complete the class. Takes the pressure off a bit and let yourself relax and learn - that is our aim.
Any questions - do get in touch.
We all like feedback.... it's why we do it!
An outstanding course,well taught and presented by the best divers i have ever had the chance of spending time with.This course has given me the skill set and confidence in my own ability to progress to a more technical style of diving,which i will do in due course.I would reccomend this course to anyone,especially with this instructor,very happy with the whole process.
I found Clare to be an outstanding educator who is 100% dedicated to producing skilled divers and filling them with same level of enthusiasm that she is overflowing with. I found the course itself to be very worthwhile and was impressed that it offered so much to all the participants, who varied in experience from a recenly-qualified diver with fewer than 50 dives to a long-standing instructor with several thousand dives under his belt.
This was an excellent course professionally delivered by instructors with a wealth of experience. Read more...
