PADI Hypoxic Trimix course is an upgrade for those divers who have taken the Trimix 65 course but want to extend their depth limits to ‘full Trimix’.
This course will give you the ability to dive to 90 metres/245 feet using various trimix blends, air, enriched air and oxygen using open circuit technical diving equipment. The course covers the cognitive and motor skills required for technical trimix diving. You will prepare to handle the hazards and risks of technical diving in general and Trimix diving in particular. Learn more about the procedures required for deep diving as well as planning and preparing for these dives. The PADI Hypoxic Trimix course also covers ways to manage reasonably foreseeable emergencies that may occur in this type of technical diving.
We recommend having some extra days planned, just in case of bad weather we can not dive a day we won’t get short on time.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
- If you did Tec 65 more than 3 months ago or with another dive centre, a skill check dive is mandatory
- Plan and execute three dives using EANx and Trimix blends to a minimum 75 maximum of 90m
- Use decompression software to create custom dive tables and dive plans
WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY CERTIFICATION?
No limits, once you are qualified. It is your responsibility to extend your experience and comfort limits slowly.
