Looking to expand your depth range? Want to reduce narcosis during deep dives? The Trimix course is your next step! As you take your diving deeper whether it be to spend more time on an awesome wreck or explore that cave system one of the major limiting factors is gas narcosis. This course shows you how to minimize the effects of narcosis by adding helium to offset the nitrogen in your breathing mixture.

Once completed you will be able to plan and execute dives to a max depth of 60 metres using as little as 18% oxygen in your mix.
