Course description: The PADI Tec Trimix builds on the PADI Tec Trimix 65 course, enabling technical divers to extend their depth limits to beyond 65m by introducing helium and reducing the oxygen percentage to less than 18%. The resulting hypoxic trimix has benefits, but you must be trained how to use it correctly (especially mixes not breathable at the surface) and planning becomes even more essential.
The course comprises of 3 sections: theory, practical applications and dives. The theory sections which teach participants about some of the key principles in trimix diving, such as depth ranges, exposure planning, selecting mixes, suit inflation systems, emergency procedures, decompression software and multi-gas computers. The practical applications include gas analysis, dive planning, cylinder marking and mission planning. The dives run through a number of previously learned skills and build on these, including pre-dive checks, SAC rate swims, long hose gas sharing, no mask swim, stage cylinder handling, gas shutdown drills, DSMB deployment, dealing with emergency situations and gas switch procedures.
Course scheduling: The PADI Tec Trimix course runs over 4 days. Please see our calendar page for the dates of these sessions. If none of the dates suit you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements.
