About this course: This e-learning course is designed for the training of both Divers and Supervisors who maybe using NITROX during diving operations.
The recommended time for course completion is from 6 to 8 hours.
Surface supplied diving is sometimes carried out using a breathing gas mix of oxygen and nitrogen with a higher percentage of oxygen in the mix than in natural compressed air. The common industry terminology for such a gas mix is NITROX.
Diving while breathing NITROX has various advantages and disadvantages, one such advantage is that the required decompression time for any particular dive can be reduced in comparison to the same dive using natural compressed air. The technique is normally used to ensure that particular dives can be carried out without the diver requiring any decompression but in other cases is used to ensure that very lengthy decompression is not required.
The dive plan for the use of NITROX needs to consider all the relevant safety considerations of using this technique in place of natural compressed air.
One of the main safety considerations not normally present when breathing compressed air is the increased risk of oxygen toxicity problems, particularly those occurring while the diver is still under water.
This e-learning course is designed for the training of both Divers and Supervisors who maybe using NITROX during diving operations.
The course has been developed using the guidance documents and references provided by International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA), the International Oil and Gas Operators Association (IOGP), USN Diving Manual Revision 6 and industry best practice.
Divers, Standby Divers, Supervisors and Equipment Technicians, Project Engineers, Client Representatives, Diving Operations Managers, Offshore Medics or anyone who works offshore with diving projects using NITROX as the divers breathing medium (gas).
This course is designed to deliver awareness and training competence to anyone who wishes to take the course. On this basis, there are no formal entry requirements. However, due to various terms and information used throughout the course, it is strongly recommended that you have an understanding of or have attended formal commercial diver training
Delegates who have successfully completed the course will be requested to proceed to the online (multiple-choice questions) examination. On successfully completion of both the course and the online examination, delegates will be awarded with a KBA Training Centre Pte Ltd e-certificate ‘NITROX Diver Training Course - eLearning’.
Congratulations! For the excellent work in the training of commercial divers.
Great, important and crucial content for commercial divers. Easy to understand. The final exam isn't quite easy but that's the point!! Thank you.
This is a great method of reaching out and educating people who are making command decisions alongside Diving Management, either onshore or offshore. It helps to bridge the gaps between complexity and considerations for planning and executing NITROX diving ops. It also serves as a reminder to those already making decisions, as to the diving documentation, calculations, limits, and safety planning considerations.
Very good e-learning course and interesting. I can finish it even though I am still at work for this time. Refresh my knowledge during busy time.
Easy way to keep you updated before going on the field. Thanks for the experience. More company should do it.
The e-learning courses offered by KBA Training is surely an excellent initiative. I will be sure to enroll for further courses in the coming year.
The overall course content was good, and will recommend to my company and colleagues.
Really good experience, it was fast and easy.
The content was very good and easy to understand.
