The ISE Exploration Diver Level 1 course is structured to prepare divers for the rigors of exploration diving, and to familiarize them with the use of different types of breathing and decompression mixtures. The training focuses on expanding the skills learnt in the ISE Basic of Exploration, and is designed to build the necessary and essential skills required for safe and successful exploration diving. This will include problem identification and resolution, and building the capacity progressively for more challenging dives. In this course, students will be trained in:
a) the use of double tanks and in the potential failure problems associated with them;
b) the use of Trimix and Nitrox
c) the use of Helium to minimize narcosis; and
d) the applications of single decompression cylinder diving with respect to decompression procedures.
e) the applictaion of a single Bottomstage containing the same gas then the backmounted doubles.
The class will focus on Nitrox and Trimix, for dives in the 60 meter depth range, and provides an excellent foundation on which divers can build their diving experience and prepare for further ISE programs.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE CLASS CAN BE CONDUCTED IN:
opencircuit backmount / sidemount or any rebreather that you are certified on.
