This Program is designed to
extend the diverís knowledge in the use of EANx for Sport diving. It
further develops diving skills and provides a greater understanding of the
EANx concept of diving.
The Program employs EANx mixes
from 21% to a maximum of 50% oxygen.
Must be qualified as an
EANx Diver and Deep Diver with proof of a minimum of 25 logged dives; or
provide proof of experience as a Deep Diver with a minimum of 50 logged
dives of which at least 10 dives were between 90 fsw (27 msw) and 130 fsw
(39 msw), plus completion of pool / shallow OW skills in the Deep Diver
Program, and completion of the Deep Diver written exam with a minimum score
Must be a minimum of 15 years

age without guardian approval.
Must complete all theory
This Program must include a
minimum of 120 minutes of OW bottom time completed within 4 dives, 2 of
which must be to depths between 100 fsw (30 msw) and 130 fsw (39 msw). If
combined with a Deep Diver Program, the total dive time for both Programs
must include a minimum of 160 minutes completed within 6 or more dives. Even
if the time and skill requirements are met within fewer than 6 dives, the
minimum 6 dives must be made. If combined with a Deep Diver Program 4 dives
must be made to depths between 100 fsw (30 msw) and 130 fsw (39 msw).
Students are taught the use of EANx mixtures from
21% to a maximum of 40% oxygen for diving. EANx mixtures in the range of 41%
to a maximum of 50% oxygen are used to teach the fundamentals of safety and
