Nodecompression CCR dives planned to remain within limits of O/C nitrox tables.
H) Dive skills: all skills contained in the IART TRITON CCR Level I manual must be taught and performed according to the required standards.
I) Requirements for certification: Following completion of the theory lessons a written test must be passed. After successful demonstration of all required
practical diving skills the certification is documented by the issue of a certificate and a positive identification card (PIC). In accordance with IART
