Specialist Advanced Nitrox

As ITDA Scuba certification programs evolved from our Technical diving background it made sense for us to create an upgrade path for any agency Nitrox divers to study and learn more about using nitrox for safer diving, with theory in decompression and as an introduction to technical diving.

ITDA Advanced Nitrox as an Introduction to Technical Divingntech

After the Sport Diver Nitrox or Resort Nitrox Certifications, where can a diver learn more about Nitrox Diving at a resonable cost and not taking up weeks and weeks of time, like many technical diving programs do?  Simple ITDA Sports Advanced Nitrox is the answer!

Who may enter the Advanced Nitrox Program?

Any agency diver with a Nitrox Diver Certification may take the program providing they are a minimum of 16 years of age, Limitations will exist for divers under 18 years old in terms of depth and decompression dives.  Note for Technical Certifications divers MUST be over 18 years of age at graduation...
