Event arranged by appointment.

This is a class for certified divers that covers in detail current uses of “back-gas” breathing mixtures with an oxygen content of 32%. Breathing Nitrox allows for extended bottom times and/or a safety margin over air in depths to 100’/30m. The class covers the practical and theoretical aspects of breathing high-oxygen mixtures, gas laws and physics, physiology, gas blending and safety, maximum operating depths, “Min-deco” procedures, and an academic introduction to decompression diving. The UTD Nitrox course is normally conducted over a 2 day period, and cumulatively involves a minimum of 16 hours of instruction including academics and two dives. The dives focus on precise buoyancy control and emergency procedures. This is a class that gives the student a practical knowledge and understanding of breathing Nitrox. For a more advanced Nitrox class, including critical skills training to a depth of 100’/30m, see the UTD Rec 2 class. Prerequisites Minimum 18 years of age UTD Rec 1 or Open Water certification from a recognized agency Course Limits Maximum depth 100’/30m Standard gas is Nitrox 32 No stage decompression No overhead environments
