Course Outline

The maximum depth advanced non-decompression divers will go to is 40 meters/130 feet. Remember, you need to do additional training programs for these depths.

At 40 meters/130 feet, there is little time to do anything because your nitrogen loading is building up fast. Have a look at your dive computer, and see what the planned time for 40 meters/130 feet is. Time here is so minimal at these depths that some divers go on to technical or decompression diving to allow greater times. There are certain benefits to decompression diving, but this is a subject of further high-level training. Your instructor can explain the pathway if you desire to go down this track.

For now, we are concentrating on your first program and the exciting things you can see when diving less than 20 meters/66 feet. The great benefit is that we have much more time to relax and to enjoy what we are seeing.
