TDI Advanced Nitrox Diver Course

  • Regular price $595.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


The TDI Advanced Nitrox program takes qualified Nitrox divers (any certification to 40% O2) and provides you with the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for utilizing nitrox mixes from 21% through to 100% (oxygen).

If you do not have a nitrox certification, we can arrange an additional evening to provide you with the training to meet the entry level requirement for Advanced Nitrox for an additional fee.

The training is structured to provide you with Advanced Nitrox training so that not only can use the full range of available Nitrox mixtures but that you can also use EAN mixes up to 100% during the Decompression Procedures practical training. The advantages of higher EAN mixes during decompression will become very evident during this training program.

When combined with TDI Decompression Procedures this program is ideal for those divers want to conduct deeper dives with a better understanding of staged decompression using nitrox as a decompression gas.

Many student doing this course are also interested in completing the SDI Solo Diver Course.  When booked in conjunction with either the Adv Nitrox or Deco course this program is offered at a special price of only $250.  Ask for more details when booking!
