Sports Mix Gas
You will learn to use gas mixes containing at least 20 per cent oxygen and a maximum of 30 per cent helium, to minimise the narcosis you may have suffered diving on air.

You will plan and conduct dives to 50m requiring up to 45-minute ascent times and mandatory decompression, and learn how to rescue another mixed-gas diver from depth.

You will develop your knowledge of mixed-gas 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 management and run-time schedules
The Sport Mixed Gas Diver course includes six theory sessions, a theory assessment, and a dry practical session to prepare your kit. It also includes a minimum of 90 minutes sheltered-water training and a minimum of 120 minutes open-water diving, to ensure that you have plenty of in-water time to practice the skills and discipline needed to carry out mixed-gas diving. The diving will be spread over at least two dives, an experience dive and an assessment dive.

This is a continually assessed course during which students must reach the required performance standards.

Explorer Mix Gas
You will extend the breathing gas mixes that you can use, learning to use normoxic gas mixes containing at least 18 per cent oxygen and a maximum of 35 per cent helium to minimise the narcosis you would otherwise suffer at depth. You will learn to plan and conduct dives to 60m, and extend your practical diving skills to manage two stage cylinders, one containing a travel gas and one a deco gas.

The Explorer Mixed Gas Diver (60m) course includes a dry practical session to review your kit set up, a sheltered-water lesson to practise managing two stage cylinders, a dive planning session and a minimum of 60 minutes open-water diving to 60m. If you attend a combined Sport Mixed Gas Diver (50m) and Explorer Mixed Gas Diver (60m) course, the kit review and sheltered-water lessons are optional refresher sessions, delivered depending on your level of deep-diving experience and familiarity with the dive kit appropriate for a 60m dive.

This is a continually assessed course during which students must reach the required performance standards.
