UTD’s Trimix Diver program, like the Tech diver program, is also a two-step process, consisting of Trimix 1 and Trimix 2. This building block concept adds depth and complexty in small steps, building on a the Techncial Diver’s existing skills. A student may take these classes individually, allowing time between to gain experience, or may combine them into one 6-day class if prepared. By the completion of Trimix 2, a diver is qualified to 250’/75m using all standardized bottom and decompression mixes, multiple stage bottles and decompression bottles.
The UTD Trimix Diver 1 course is designed to continue a diver’s pursuit of technical diving, giving them the ability to use hypoxic Trimix blends and to carry and manage two (2) decompression bottles (Nitrox 50 and O2).
The limits of this certification will allow the diver to conduct dives beyond the 160’/48m limits of the Technical Diver. New material includes the nuances of Trimix (Hypoxic mixes), the gas management and failure management of multiple decompression bottles, the in water management of these two decompression bottles, and other academic issues and understanding of the dives to 200’/60m. When combined with Trimix Diver 2, this class provides the solid basis of critical skills for the Trimix
