Decompression Procedures

Are you finding your no-stop limits are cutting your dives short? Do you find yourself ascending sooner than you would like? As recreational divers, planned decompression is not something that we do or have been taught. The Decompression Procedures course prepares you for staged decompression dives to maximum depth of 45 metres. Combining this course with Advanced Nitrox form the foundations for all other technical diving courses.
