This program was designed to provide training for Opencircuit divers already involved in deep diving
activities to more safely conduct exploration dives requiring extended decompression profiles and helium -based gas mixtures. Trimix affords a safer means for deep-water exploration for divers who dive deep or perform with a clear head at depth. The IANTD Trimix Diver Program requires the diver to be
self-sufficient/reliant. Participation in the IANTD Expedition Trimix Diver program is not intended to be used as an enticement to divers who are content to remain in normal Sport or EANx diving limits.
To take part in an IANTD Expedition Diver program divers must be qualified as an IANTD Trimix Diver or equivalent with at least 100 Trimix dives or sufficient experience conducting technical dives to satisfy the instructor that they have the ability and knowledge to continue into this Expedition level of training. All divers must be a minimum of 21 years of age.
The IANTD Expedition Trimix Diver program qualifies divers to perform Trimix Dives outside of training up to 120 msw.
