The SSI Technical Extended Range diving program builds upon skills and techniques learned as an SSI Extended Range Trimix Diver. During this course, you will go beyond the no-decompression limit by increasing your dive depth and duration. Using technical equipment and either an XR Sidemount or Twinset Total Diving System, Technical Extended Range diving provides avid underwater explorers with the training necessary to independently plan and conduct unlimited decompression, mixed gas diving to depths of up to 60 metres.
