This new specialty course PADI/DAN Deep-X Diver is all about decompression diving training and an introduction into scientific diving. It is the aim of the course to train you in decompression diving and to upload the data of your dives into the DAN database to provide data for scientific research. From the data of thousands of dives the decompression algorithms of dive computers can be improved and the dive computer calculations in daily use of normal divers will become safer. In the long term this will make diving safer for you and all the other divers in the world.
Your advantage will be the immediate analysis of your diving profile from the data of your dive computer with hints towards the risk of decompression accidents according to your diving profile. This will improve your diving habits specially in deep dives.
The course consits of an e-learning theory part which you will do in advance at home on your tablet, notebook or PC. You will register for the PADI/DAN DEEP-X e-learning theory directly on the DAN-Server. The e-learning course is available in english only! You will find the e-learning course here:
