Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures

Here at NADCO we teach Advanced Nitrox and Deco Procedures as it should be as a combined course.  We are teaching you the skills and knowledge from both of these amazing courses at the same time.  You will have the ability to use high oxygen content deco gas to help shorten you deco stops.  

What’s in it for you?

  • Ability to dive using EAN 21 through 100 percent oxygen provided
  • Ability to conducted dives with decompression
  • Certified to a depth limit of 150ft
Starting from

Availability: In Stock

Who this course is for:

  • The diver looking to expand their understanding of nitrox mixtures containing more than 40% oxygen
  • The diver looking to expand their in-water skills
  • The diver who has interest in moving forward with technical diving education
  • The diver looking to expand their knowledge of decompression theory and diving techniques
  • The diver who is interested in extending their bottom time

Course prerequisites(these requirements must be met prior to the start of the course):

  • Minimum age 18
  • Advanced Open water or equivalent
  • Deep Diver Cert. or equivalent
  • TDI Nitrox Diver or equivalent
  • Proof of 25 logged open water dives

What you can expect to learn:Advanced Nitrox picks up where TDI Nitrox leaves off and offers a more in-depth look at diving with nitrox including:

  • Physics and physiology relating to diving with gas mixes containing more than 40% oxygen
  • Gas planning, dive tables, dive computers, oxygen limitations, nitrogen limitations
  • Equipment considerations, cylinder labeling, analyzing nitrox mixtures, gas blending procedures, and oxygen service ratings for using gases with more than 40% oxygen

Some of the skills you will complete in this course include:

  • Decompression dive planning including:
    • Decompression gas choices
    • Tables vs. personal dive computers
    • Emergency and contingency planning (equipment failure, omitted decompression, etc.)
  • Decompression diving procedures
    • Equipment selection
    • Pre-dive checks and drills
    • Stress analysis and mitigation
    • Following a decompression schedule
    • Gas switching
    • Team awareness and communication
    • SMB/lift bag deployment
  • Demonstrate buoyancy control; ability to hover at fixed position in water column without moving hands or feet
  • Show good awareness of buddy and other team members through communication, proximity, and team oriented dive practices
  • Demonstrate the ability to manage free flow from primary regulator in controlled fashion, shut down cycle, and switch to back up regulator
  • Conduct appropriate safety stop while maintaining neutral buoyancy
  • Demonstrate the ability to share air with buddy as both recipient and donor in a controlled manner while maintaining position in the water column
  • Demonstrate correct body position; appropriate trim, such as horizontal/streamlined when moving forward
  • Demonstrate proper stress analysis with self and dive buddy
