This course is designed to teach you the hazards of utilizing Helium for dives to a maximum depth of 150 fsw that may require stage decompression, utilizing EANx mixtures and/or oxygen during decompression.

    During your training, you’ll complete at least 14 open water dives using a EANx and Helitrox mixtures (26% oxygen / 17% helium). Your studies will include the knowledge necessary to plan and safely execute Helitrox dives including gas needs and requirements, oxygen toxicity limitations, nitrogen narcosis limitations, and emergency planning, including omitted decompression, oxygen toxicity, decompression sickness, and equipment failure.

    Got few Q's for ya Woody.

    I am already taking TDI AdvNitrx and Deco. Do those count for the prereqs for the Helitrox course? What is the time frame (duration) for this class?

    Wreck diver 1 - what's the time frame for this? Where do you do conduct the dives at?

    Do you have these classes scheduled out, or is it "by appointment"?

    Woody, thank you for posting the information about the classes here. Now, I have few more questions.

    1. What are the prerequisites for Tech 1? I have just finished Intro to Tech (NAUI).
    2. How long would it take to complete the class?
    3. Do I need to have my own doubles and deco tanks for it?
    4. What is the price of the class?


    I assume the dives would be at Lake Travis. Correct?

    Thanks.
    Tempt me not!
    I can do it myself!

    Personally, I cannot imagine taking advanced training such as tech or cave without being proficient at diving with doubles. Trying to figure out how to adapt to doubles during a tech class might be an exercise in frustration.

    First, thank you for imagining things for me, but I needed answer to specific question. Though, I don't see it in your post.

    Secondly, there is a difference between being proficient with a specific gear and owning it. I have just finished my Intro to Tech where doubles and big steel tanks were provided.

    Thirdly, at this point of my life I'm not sure where I'll end up living, as I'm about to graduate from college with a degree in field with narrow job market, which could subsequently make me move somewhere far. Thus, owning heavy and bulky gear as tanks is not an option at least till I settle.

    Thanks.
