Are you looking to expand your dive time?Are you finding your no- decompression limits (NDLs) a limiting factor to dives and you have to ascend sooner than you would like? Maybe you’re a scientific diver or photographer looking to stay in the water a little longer? The TDI Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures Course qualifies divers to use enriched air nitrox from EAN 21 through EAN 100 percent to a maximum depth of 45 metres/150 feet during dives that utilize a stage cylinder to accelerate decompression.
This can be considered the foundation of your technical diving career. The TDI Decompression Procedures Course combined with the TDI Advanced Nitrox course form the foundation of all other technical courses. After these two courses and some additional experience, the stage has been set for you to move onto additional technical levels such as CCR and Trimix.

Before you can start class you'll need to fill out some paperwork. Most of this can be done ahead of time, but some of it will have to be done in the shop. The only piece that MUST be completed at the shop is a folder provided by SSI. You will need to fill this particular folder out in the shop as we keep it for our records. You can do this before class - just remember to show up 30 minutes early if you haven't filled it out yet!
There are a couple of forms that can be done ahead of time. Most important is the medical. Go through the medical now and check to see if you need to answer "YES" to any of the questions. If so no big deal - you'll just need to get a doctors' sign-off before we can let you in the pool. The doctors' note is in the same file as the medical - Just scroll down to the next page. Remember IF you answer "YES" to anything in the medical it is COMPULSORY to get a doctors' note BEFORE getting in the pool.
