IART TRIMIX CCR Level 3 COURSE – 90 meters
The CCR Level 3 course develops in the participant, the required abilities, knowledge and techniques conduct decompression dives safely and responsibly with the closed circuit rebreather using sub-normoxic Trimix as diluent gas to a maximum depth of 90m. Blue Label Diving takes their students to a depth of 100 meters on the last dive in the fresh water lake of Song Hong in Thailand.
All theoretical and practical aspects of TRIMIX diving related to the CCR
Standards & Procedures IART CCR Level III Course:
Closed Circuit Rebreather Diver Level III (CCR Level III) “TRIMIX” – IART Trimix CCR Level 3
Course Objective IART Trimix CCR Level 3:
This course is designed to provide experience and training with any of the units mentioned below.
Pre-requisites IART CCR Level III Course:
- 100 logged dives on the specific unit
- IART level 2 certification
- A valid diving medical.
Amongst other themes, the theory covers:
- physiological and psychological aspects of deep mixed-gas diving,
- decompression planning,
- equipment configuration for multiple bailout cylinders,
- use bail-out gases,
- safe dive practices and emergency procedures with the rebreather
- This course prepares the student for the safe and responsible execution of decompression dives using helium mixes as diluent gas to a maximum depth of 90m.
All theoretical and practical aspects of TRIMIX diving or Heliox related to the CCR. Amongst other themes, the theory covers:
- physiological and psychological aspects of mixed-gas diving, decompression planning, equipment configuration for multiple bailout cylinders, use of bail-out gases, safe dive practices and emergency procedures with the rebreather.
An important point is the planning and calculation of dives with the integral software as well as computer-based diving tables such as GAP, V-Planner or Proplanner software etc.
The training dives include the proper planning, gas analysis and labelling, equipment familiarisation (removal, replacement and use of travel/deco mix bail-out stages) emergency and out-of-gas procedures (bail-out, rescue ascent, etc.), ascent reel and lift bag deployment, and proper CCR decompression techniques.
The training reflects the standards required by the manufacturer of the rebreather. IART is authorised by the manufacturer to conduct this training.
The IART Level III course manual is constantly revised and improved in consultation with the manufacturer to reflect new developments resulting from technical improvements or gained through dive experience. You will receive the current edition from your IART instructor.
