Training is flexible to match your goals and objectives. Combine your new trimix gas blending knowledge with SSI programs that require mixed gasses for diving, like the Extended Range Trimix program. Or, take the Extended Range Nitrox program and learn to dive to a depth of 40 meters / 130 feet with limited decompression while using nitrox and the techniques and procedures for using breathing gases up to 100% oxygen for decompression. Then, take your mixed gas diving to the highest level with SSI’s Hypoxic Trimix program, where you will conduct mixed gas dives to 100 meters / 300 feet.
