IANTD OPEN CIRCUIT COURSES
Extend your range here at Vobster Quay! We've got some great IANTD open circuit training opportunities including our most popular programmes - Deep Deco (40 metres depth limit with a maximum of 10 minutes deco) and Advanced Nitrox (40 metres with unlimited deco).
Both our open circuit offerings provide the perfect opening to extended range diving, with all training dives carried out here at Vobster. We aim to tune up your diving from gas planning, gear configuration, skills polishing, physical practice and most importantly, the mental approach to deeper diving. Our open circuit programmes are perfect for exploring those signature wrecks in the channel or simply progressing towards rebreather or technical training.

Building upon your existing knowledge and skills, you'll develop your dive skills to safely and competently plan and conduct dives utilising open circuit dive equipment. As with all IANTD programmes, you can be assured of a high standard of professional instruction, with in depth knowledge and perceptive debriefs to assist your learning.

The Self Sufficient diver course improves self rescue skills and self confidence, focussing on making safe ascents from unplanned separation underwater. It is an ideal introduction to diving with twinsets and as a foundational level for proceeding to any task based or supervisory diving.

DEEP DECO DIVER
Many divers treat the deep (no deco)) speciality as a license to 'do a bit of deco', but then end up in a pickle when it all goes wrong. This speciality is aimed at divers who admit this is their bag, but who don't want to go the full tech.
Sensibly pitched deco awareness and theory, plus proper gas planning are the core of planning for those extra bottom minutes to really get the most out of your bucket list opportunity without compromising safety. Shutdowns and DSMB ascents with stable control at deco stops are rigorously practiced for maximum confidence.
