Gas Blender and o2 Tech

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to competently and safely blend all manner of diving gases. You will have a professional level of knowledge when it comes to handling oxygen and other gases, plus you will have learned and practiced the proper techniques for blending decompression gases, heliox, heliair, nitrox and trimix.

This course informs you of the equipment requirements and hazards involved in blending various gasses, while educating you in the proper techniques and different ways to blend. We will spend time in the classroom discussing various blending procedures, then follow that up with some actual nitrox and trimix blending to assorted predetermined mixes and finish up by analyzing those gases.

There is no prerequisite but you are required to have a copy of the “Nitrox Gas Blending” and “Advanced Gas Blending” manuals from TDI, which I prefer to send out to you ahead of time so you can do some reading in preparation for class! The course is usually two to three days in length and it is highly recommended that you have your own oxygen and trimix analyzer, but I can provide them if needed.

If you have any questions regarding equipment, training, scheduling or about the course in general, please feel free to contact me at rich@divecaves.com and generally I will respond back to you within twenty-four hours
