We offer training through IANTD and PADI. Described below are some of the technical diver classes we offer through the IANTD. Call Jim at 352-363-0013 for questions. IANTD feels that Advanced Nitrox and Advanced Recreational Trimix are sport diving courses that are considered entry-level courses for technical diving.
Deep Diver Program trains divers in skills, performance, theory and planning of deep dives. This Program remains within the commonly practiced depth of 130 fsw. It is recommended that this Program be taught in conjunction with the IANTD EANx Diver Program or the Recreational Trimix Diver Program or the IANTD Advanced EANx Diver Program. This program qualifies divers to dive to 130 fsw (39 msw). This Program must include a minimum of 100 minutes of OW bottom time completed within 4 dives, two of which must be to depths between 90 fsw and 130 fsw. This class lasts 4-5 days.
Advanced Recreational Trimix - This Program is designed to extend the diver’s knowledge in the use of EANx for Sport diving. It further develops diving skills and provides a greater understanding of the EANx concept of diving. It is also intended to supplement the skills of Recreational Trimix Divers. The Program employs EANx mixes from 21% oxygen to a maximum of 1.5 PO2 combined with a Helium content that maintains an END no greater than 80 fsw may be used. This program qualifies divers to dive to 160 fsw (48 msw) and perform decompression stops required dives up to 15 minutes. This Program must include a minimum of 120 minutes of OW bottom time completed within four (4) dives, two (2) of which must be to depths between 100 fsw and 160 fsw.
Self-Sufficient Diver This Program have been designed to provide qualified divers with “self-supported - self-sufficient” training. There will be a minimum of 90 minutes bottom time over four dives.
Advanced Nitrox Diver This Program is designed to extend the diver’s knowledge in the use of EANx for Sport diving. It further develops divingskills and provides a greater understanding of the EANx concept of diving.2. The Program employs EANx mixes up to 1.5 PO2.3. This program qualifies divers to do dive to 140 fsw (42 msw) and do decompression stops required dives up to 15 minutes. This Program must include a minimum of 120 minutes of OW bottom time completed within four dives, two of which must be to depths between 100 fsw and 140 fsw.
Advanced Wreck Diver This Program is designed to train divers in extended wreck penetration diving and the technical utilization of EANx for wreck exploration and the use of EANx and oxygen for decompression. Must be qualified as an IANTD Deep Diver or equivalent. For Technical Wreck Diver Program, must also be qualified as an EANx Diver. Must provide proof of a minimum of 70 logged dives or sufficient experience doing technical dives to satisfy the instructor thatthe student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training.OR2. A minimum of 40 logged dives with qualification as Wreck or Cavern Diver. If dives in the course below 130 fsw (39msw) are planned the diver must have 100 logged dives. This Program must include a minimum of 240 minutes of bottom time to be completed within at least 6 wreck penetration dives.
