DECOMPRESSION PROCEDURES Dive beyond no-decompression stop limits (NDLs)

This course is usually not offered as a stand-alone.  Typically offered in conjunction with Helitrox or as remediation for a student needing more guidance on carrying a deco bottle properly.

With a maximum operating depth of 150 feet, this course is your first step beyond the normal sport diving limits.

• Kit set-up
• Equipment requirements
• Decompression techniques
• Decompression breathing gases
• Gas management
