Thinking of progressing your XR Journey? If you have already completed your Extended Range Nitrox course and are looking to extend your bottom time and max depth further. You can upgrade to the SSI Extended Range diver.

The course aims to develop past your current foundation and knowledge of XR diving allowing you to independently plan and conduct limited decompression dives to a maximum of 45m using decompression mixtures of up to 100% oxygen with specialized dive equipment and procedures for a maximum of 25 minutes accumulated decompression time.

The course requires use of either a backmount system or XR sidemount system both with one stage cylinder. The program is developed and intended for the use of trimix as the breathing gas to reduce inert gas narcosis and increase diver safety. An air option is also available.

Run over two days, the course has a theory and pool day where we further develop your diving and xr knowledge/skills. The second day consists of two boat dives from our purpose built rib developing your XR skills in the open water environment.

This final day will finalise your extended range knowledge to be able to independently conduct a dive up to 45 metres for a maximum 25 minutes accumulated decompression time with an equivalently trained or higher buddy.
