SSI XR Programs



SSI’s Advanced level XR Programs are technical diving, challenging the diver with multi-stage decompression, advanced failure management, plus supreme trim and buoyancy.
When participating in Technical Wreck Diving and Full Cave Diving, you will learn the ultimate in overhead environment techniques. Because of the nature of these programs, your training will be incredibly thorough and exciting. Nothing is left to chance and all bases are covered. The high level of knowledge and skills are taken a step further allowing you to push not only traditional diving limits but also your own.
This is the zenith in diving!

Once you have completed your training you will be ready for all of the challenges of technical diving.


This program qualifies you to dive to 45 meters using nitrox and 20 minutes of accelerated decompression using a one stage decompression gas (up to oxygen). The program can only be completed wearing an Extended Range total
diving system (Twinset or Sidemount).


As with Extended Range this course allows you to dive to 45 meters and 20 minutesof accelerated decompression time using one stage decompression gas (oxygen). In addition to using nitrox, you will be qualified to use limited trimix with a minimum oxygen content of 21%.
Extended Range with Trimix is specifically designed to reduce the risk of nitrogen narcosis for deeper diving.


This program qualifies you to dive to 50m when using Air or 60m when using Normoxic Trimix (min 18% Oxygen content) two stage decompression gases will be utilized for this program. The program can only be completed wearing a full Extended Range total diving system.


This is the pinnacle of technical diving. Here you will use all the knowledge, skills, equipment and experience from all of your previous training and push your limits to the extreme. There are two pathways; one takes you to 80 meters and the other to100 meters using the same full Extended Range total diving system you mastered in previous programs. However, you will now use a minimum of three stages for decompression and travel gases.
