Courses

Open Water Diver

This program is designed to provide comprehensive training to those who wish to become SCUBA divers. This program emphasizes the skills and knowledge needed to develop a safer novice diver and to develop a sense of confidence and responsibility of those joining the adventures of underwater discovery. This program qualifies a diver to dive to depths no greater than 60 fsw (18 msw).

Open Water Nitrox Diver

This program is designed to provide comprehensive training to those who wish to become SCUBA divers. This program emphasizes the skills and knowledge needed to develop a safer novice diver and to develop a sense of confidence and responsibility of those joining the adventures of underwater discovery. This program qualifies a diver to dive to depths no greater than 60 fsw (18 msw). Upon completion of the Open Water Nitrox Diver Program the diver may dive any EANx mixture from air to EAN 40.

Advanced Open Water Diver

This mid-level continuing education program is designed to enable the IANTD Open Water (Nitrox) Diver to extend their proficiency in the water and to gain more supervised practical experience. This program prepares divers to explore depths up to 90 fsw (27 msw).

Rescue Diver

This program is designed to develop proficiency in self- and buddy-rescue.

Rebreather Experience

This program is designed to introduce the diver to the basic concepts of Rebreathers, and to provide a practical confined water exposure for swimming with a Rebreather. It is NOT a Qualification Program.

EANx Resort Diver

This program is designed to provide recreational divers with an introductory experience to the benefits of EANx diving. The diver may elect to dive the "mix" on EANx tables or conservatively using their dive computers on airtables with an added diver safety margin. The program does not certify divers as EANx divers and does not count toward EANx Diver certification.

EANx Diver

This program provides recreational divers a safer breathing medium for enjoying dives in 40 fsw (12 msw) to 130 fsw (39 msw) depth range. The diver may elect to dive the mix on EANx tables or conservatively using their dive computers or air tables with an added diver safety margin. The IANTD Nitrox Diver certification is adaptable to being taught as a single program or by combining it with a variety of advanced or specialty diver courses.

Deep Air Diver

This program has been developed to provide responsible training to divers who plan to dive to 130 fsw (39 msw) on air. The IANTD Deep Air Diver program trains divers in skills, performance, theory and planning of deep dives. This program remains within the commonly practiced depth of 130 fsw (39 msw). It is the first sanctioned program to provide proper international training in safe deep diving skills and performance. It is recommended that this program be taught in conjunction with the IANTD EANx Diver program.

Advanced EANx Diver

This program is designed to extend the divers knowledge with O2 mixes of 22 to 40% and up to 50% for decompression. It further develops diving skills and provides a greater understanding of the Nitrox diving concept.

Rebreather Diver

This program is designed to train competent divers in the safer use and technology of rebreathers.

Overhead Environment Diver

Overhead Environment training program develops diving skills and cavern diving skills within limits of light penetration. This program is designed to ensure divers are aware of self-responsibility and capable of risk management in overhead environments. The program is taught using air.

EANx Overhead Environment Diver

EANx Overhead Environment training program develops diving skills and cavern diving skills within limits of light penetration. This program is designed to ensure divers are aware of self-responsibility and capable of risk management in overhead environments. The program is taught using nitrox.

Introductory Cave Diver

The design of this program provides an introduction to the cave diving environment of recreational divers.

Specialty Diver

These programs have been designed to provide certified divers with specialty training in areas such as Underwater Modeling, Underwater Photography, Underwater Videography, Night Diver, Salvage Diver, Wall Diver, DPV Diver, Rescue Diver, Oxygen Provider, Hyperbaric Chamber Operations, Dive Medic, Full Face Mask Diver, Surface Supplied Diver, etc.

Divemaster

This program is designed to provide responsible training for those persons wishing to supervise standard IANTD divers, including Nitrox Divers, Advanced Nitrox Divers and Deep Air Divers. IANTD Nitrox Divemasters may supervise and assist in all open water IANTD diver programs but cannot conduct training exercise's unless under the direction of a qualified IANTD instructor.

Technical Diver

This program is designed to train divers to carry out dives to depths between 100 feet (30 meters) and 170 fsw 10 fsw (50 msw 3 msw) using custom blend mixes and to provide greater understanding of custom blend mixes, a complete knowledge of the limits of any EANx mixture, and the use of EANx and oxygen for decompression. This program develops a working relationship of gas blending, tracking oxygen uptake at all levels of the dive (bottom time, ascent time including decompression stops), how to plan OTU / CNS values to allow for maximum dive safety, equipment cleanliness levels and maintenance, and field operational procedures. IANTD Technical EANx Diver or Intermediate Trimix Diver certification is a prerequisite for the IANTD Trimix Diver program.

Normoxic Trimix Diver

The IANTD Normoxic Trimix Diver program is aimed at those who wish to dive in the zone between 130 fsw (39 msw) and 200 fsw (60 msw) but are not comfortable doing so on air. The course uses normoxic mixtures and consists of 12 dives and one three (3) hour confined water session. Six (6) dives are on air to depths between 100 fsw (30 msw) and 130 fsw (39 msw) and six (6) dives involve practicing specified skills at depths between 30 fsw (9 msw) and 90 fsw (27 msw). All dives will be performed with two (2) stage cylinders. Four (4) Trimix dives are also made in the course with two (2) at depths up to 165 fsw (50 msw) and two (2) at depths up to 200 fsw (60 msw). This is an intense seven (7) day program enabling the graduate to be qualified to dive normoxic Trimix to 200 fsw (60 msw). It does not qualify the diver to use hypoxic mixtures to participate in dives deeper than 200 fsw (60 msw). The text for the course is IANTD's Technical Encyclopedia, associated Workbook, Slides and newly developed Water-proof Tables.

Trimix Diver

The IANTD Trimix Diver program is dedicated to those individuals already involved in deep diving activities. The Trimix course is not designed to be used as an enticement to divers who are content to remain in normal recreational or EANx diving limits. Trimix affords a safer method for deep water exploration for divers who must dive deep or perform with a clear head in intermediate depths. The IANTD Trimix program establishes the need to be self-sufficient.

Technical Rebreather Diver

To train divers in the safer use and technology of rebreathers for deep diving to depths in excess of 130 fsw (39 msw).

Technical Diver Supervisor

This program is designed to provide recognition of leadership qualifications of competent divers. A Technical Nitrox Diver Supervisor is a Leadership or Instructor-in-Training rating. Technical Nitrox Diver Supervisors may supervise divers in open water and students in all standard courses (except Overhead Environment), EANx Technical Diver under the direction of a qualified IANTD Instructor.

Trimix Gas Blender

This program has been designed to train competent personnel in the safe handling of oxygen and the preparation of Trimix.
