Deep

Some of the best recreational diving takes place in water deeper than 60 feet. Such dives include wrecks and walls.

  • The purpose, problems, hazards, planning, preparation, equipment (additions and modifications), air supplies, personnel, techniques, gas management, emergency procedures (including location and transportation to a hyperbaric chamber) and depth limits for recreational diving.

Deep Descent

  • Decompression-related topics include nitrogen narcosis and decompression sickness (definition, cause, symptoms, signs, first aid and prevention) history of decompression, concepts, use of dive computers, definition of terms, problems, principles and techniques.
  • Complete coverage of Repetitive Dive Tables, work sheets, problem solutions, exceptions and dive planning are also included.
  • Altitude diving, flying after diving and hyperbaric chamber access and operation is included, as well as other short- and long-term deep diving hazards.
