Sports Mixed Gas & Explorer Mixed Gas CCR Diver 8:00 AM
Sports Mixed Gas & Explorer Mixed Gas CCR Diver
Nov 1 @ 8:00 AM – Nov 3 @ 5:00 PM
Description:Cost: £500 – Places: 2 Book: https://www.bsac.com/events/sxmg-ndac-1st-november-2019-17540—1375/ Further details: info@nwbsac.co.uk Sports Mix Gas CCR You will learn to plan and conduct CCR dives using diluents with at least 20 per cent oxygen and a maximum of 30 per cent helium. This will minimise the narcosis you may have suffered diving with an air diluent and you will extend your maximum depth to 50 metres. You will develop your knowledge of mixed-gas CCR diving, including: Theory of mixed-gas diving Equipment and decompression systems Advanced diving physiology Practical diving techniques, including diving with a stage cylinder Dive planning including gas choices, gas-loss.......

Theory Instructor Exam 9:00 AM
Theory Instructor Exam
Nov 2 @ 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Cost: £12 – £39 Places: 12 Further information: info@bsac.co.uk Booking: https://www.bsac.com/events/tie-north-west-macclesfield-2nd-november-2019-17270—1314/ The Theory Instructor Exam (TIE) will take around half a day. The day will start with an overall brief from the lead examiner on the day. You will then be split into groups typically of up to six candidates and two examiners. The running order will be agreed. You will be allowed time between lessons to prepare the room for each lesson. Each candidate will present a ten-minute classroom lesson that they have prepared. When all candidates have given their classroom presentations, there will usually be a short break.......

You will learn to plan and conduct dives to 80m, and extend your practical diving skills to manage increasingly long run times with ascent times of up to 60 minutes. You will develop your knowledge of deep open-circuit mixed-gas diving, including: Practical diving techniques, including using decompression systems suitable for expedition team diving. Advanced diving physiology. Advanced decompression theory........
