The IANTD Normoxic Trimix program provides training to those divers who wish to dive to depths between 39 msw and 60 msw. This program teaches divers to use an Equivalent Narcotic Depth (END) of 36m or less to reduce the effects of Nitrogen Narcosis when diving in the 39 - 60 msw range. Normoxic Trimix reduces narcosis on dives to such depths thus allowing divers to operate more safely and efficiently.
To participate in the IANTD Normoxic Trimix course divers need to be qualified as an IANTD Advanced EANx Diver, must have logged a minimum of 100 dives, of which at least 30 were deeper than 27 msw and be a minimum of 18 years of age.
The IANTD Normoxic Trimix program includes a minimum of two Air or EANx or Normoxic (or greater than 21% oxygen) Trimix gas or diluent dives in Openwater to depths not exceeding 39 msw. On all of the dives the student is taught the skills to manage one stage cylinder. In addition the program includes a minimum of three dives in Openwater on Trimix using one gas switch. Your instructor will ensure that these dives are completed between 39 msw and 60 msw. This Program will include a minimum of 280 minutes of run time, including Air, EANx and Trimix dives.
The IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver program provides divers with the knowledge to safely perform full decompression dives with and END of 36m outside of training up to 60 msw.
