The world of underwater exploration has evolved over the years to allow us to go further beyond the limits once set by the early pioneers of diving.
Moving beyond the sports diving limits requires several important elements.
Firstly, a person must desire to extend their limits to allow deeper, longer and darker experiences. Specialist equipment needs to be used and properly maintained; and finally the diver needs the skills and experience that only comes from first class training.
The Dive Victoria Group has a dedicated team of Technical Explorers and highly skilled Trainers on hand to ensure your development of skills, knowledge and equipment set up is done the right way.
SSI's Extended Range programs form a bridge between Recreational Diving and Technical Diving. They are designed to allow you, the recreational diver, the chance to enter the exciting world of Extended Range diving without necessarily having to dramatically change your existing diving philosophy. These programs simply enhance and build upon your existing knowledge. They provide the components that will allow you to use the different gases, new equipment and skills necessary to complete limited decompression schedules
SSI's Technical Extended Range Programs are true Technical Diving programs. They challenge the diver with multi stage unlimited decompression profiles. As with the XR programs, real overhead techniques are covered when participating in the wreck and cave programs.
Because of the nature of these extreme programs your training will be incredibly thorough and exacting. Nothing is left to chance and all bases are covered. The high level skills and knowledge during the XR programs are taken a step further allowing you to push not only traditional diving limits but also your own.
These are apex programs and once you have completed your training you will be the best of the best.
