The extended range course is the technical entry level course that allows you to start your technical diving adventures. This is a 4 day course that will allow you to dive to a maximum depth of 45 metres and have up to 25 minutes of decompression. You will also be allowed to accelerate that decompression with the use of a stage cylinder that can have up to 100% O2.
The course consists of 3 parts:
Theory: During the theory sessions you will learn about
- Technical dive equipment.
- How your body reacts during a dive beyond the recreational decompression limits.
- Decompression theory and decompression procedures.
- How to do an in depth dive plan.
Skill Development: During this section you will head to the sea and practice the skills needed to become a technical diver, such as:
- Different finning techniques.
- Buoyancy and Trim.
- Emergency valve shut downs.
- Out of gas emergencies
- How to use the stage cylinder
- SMB deployment
Dives: We will be conducting 6 dives during the course. We will start off with a maximum depth of 30 metres, then 40 metres and then to our maximum of 45 metres. We will also be conducting decompression during the dives. We will start off with a simulated decompression ascent, then move on to real decompression ascents.
The price of the Extended Range course is €720. This includes equipment, certification and 2 dives on the Zenobia wreck.
You must be an Open Water Diver with a Deep and Nitrox Speciality licence with at least 50 dives.
