Caving diving training

 

It is possible to chain the two levels over 5 days.

 

Cavern diver

Introduction to ceiling diving, the Cavern diver enters the cavity without venturing further than daylight. However, the configuration, the trim (the position of the diver so that his kicking preserves the sediments on the ground so that the return is done in conditions of acceptable visibility), the basic procedures of caving diving are addressed.

Duration: 2 days with four dives and a little theory

Location: depending on the season, to be defined with you, in Charente or in the Lot

You must be of legal age, minimum level 2

 

Intro Cave Diver

After the cavern, the Intro Cave corresponds to the autonomy of the caving diver as long as there is no crossroads or narrows. All the basic techniques of caving diving are mastered.

Duration: 3 days with four dives and lots of theory

Location: to be defined depending on the season

In addition to the Cavern conditions, you must have dived a little caving (30 dives minimum)

 

Full Cave Diver

The full cave corresponds to total autonomy in diving. The training is centered on gas planning, mastery of complex navigation, crossroads, crossings.

Duration: 3 days with 6 dives and 4 hours of theory.

Location: to be defined depending on the season

 

Mine 1

Mine 1 brings together the equivalent of the Cavern and the Intro Cave combined, suitable for diving in mines. The mine has its particularities which define a specific content for diving in mines. The gateway from one to the other is easily possible at Saint Même les Carrières and the Charentaise galleries.

 

Mine 2

Mine 2 is a full cellar in an artificial environment, with its specific procedures. In Saint Even les Carrières, training or a simple crossover is done in an extraordinary site. With the multiple launches, the different routes and the variety of configurations Saint Même is the ideal site to learn the techniques specific to "mine" diving.

Rebreather diving training

 

Rebreather diving is diving into the world of silence. No bubble to scare wildlife and finally silence to listen to the world of the sea.
It is also safe diving, more anxiety about the air supply, autonomy depending on the model ranges from 2 to 3 hours.
Finally it is great comfort, the diver breathes as freely as on the surface, a hot and humid gas.

You no longer leave for a short underwater intrusion into the noise and stress. You will go for a walk as if you are going on a mountain excursion, you take the time to appreciate the landscapes and approach the animals with the greatest discretion.

Baptism recycler To get an idea

 

The discovery of rebreather diving

Home :

Depending on your size, the most suitable recycler is adjusted for you. Depending on your wishes, diving is planned in the swimming pool or at Saint Meme les Carrières in slightly cooler water. In summer, the baptism can be done in the Charente which conceals quite incredible diving sites!

Diving

The first rebreather dive is always confusing. The disappearance of the ballast lung is largely compensated by the pleasure of no longer making noise. The apprehension of having to manage the new volumes of gas fades once the first meters are crossed. After that there is only happiness. You are no longer limited by autonomy. You decide the end of the dive!

 

 

A day to discover rebreather diving

 

Home :

The day begins at 9:00 a.m. on the main square of Saint Même les Carrières or in the summer season on the dive site on the banks of the Charente, for a brief presentation of the history of the rebreather dive then an assembly of the machine.

 

First dive

Then follow a first dive to discover bubble-free breathing in complete serenity. By the way, the ballast lung is left in the cloakroom and there remains only the pleasure of diving in silence.

 

Lunch break

The meal is taken after preparing the machine for the afternoon dive. It is an opportunity to share his first impressions.

 

Second dive

Depending on the season and weather conditions, the afternoon site is chosen to vary the pleasure.

 

You must be Level two minimum.

Inspiration Training - Evolution Air

 

Come and do your Inspiration Evolution rebreather diving course in Charente!

Air inspiration training. You must be a confirmed Nitrox diver and level 3

The electronic closed circuit recycler is based on an electronic management of the oxygen supply to the diver according to the quantity that he asked the machine. The diluent for this oxygen is air or trimix. With air the diver breathes a suitable nitrox.
These dives optimize decompression as well as possible. There is therefore a double security to dive with this rebreather, autonomy without comparison with the open circuit, and optimization of decompression. You will discover during the training the multiple additional advantages to dive with this wonderful machine.

 

A theoretical module

There is a common base for all recyclers to assimilate. Then there are the specifics of the Inspiration or Evolution of ODA to discover. It remains to add the problem of gases and safety during these bubble-free dives. Knowledge of the machine's user manual is a prerequisite before going to the course if you want to take full advantage of it (of the course and the machine!).

 

A practical module

Eight hours minimum dives and at least 8 dives with air diluent validate the Air Inspiration training.

Special dives:
Night dive, drift dive, wreckage etc ... they require some additional knowledge to be appreciated in complete safety.

 

Nitrox training: First level of technical diving, the Nitrox is a plus for decompression.

 

Confirmed Nitrox training: To optimize decompression whatever the depth of the dive, use of all oxygenated mixes up to pure oxygen.

 

Trimix training: From a certain depth the air becomes toxic, it is then necessary to use synthetic mixtures with helium in addition to oxygen and nitrogen. It is easy to descend, you have to learn to ascend. Aquatek does not offer trimix training in open circuit, the rebreather is there to optimize and secure these dives, let's take advantage of it to live with our times. The trimix is ​​now in recycler.
