Ten program jest skierowany do nurków, którzy chcą rozszerzyć zakres penetracji wrakowej i używać EANx do eksploracji wraków oraz tlenu do dekompresji.
1. Must be qualified as an IANTD Deep Diver or equivalent. For Technical Wreck Diver Program, must also be qualified as an
IANTD EANx Diver.
2. Must provide proof of a minimum of 70 logged dives or sufficient experience doing technical dives to satisfy the instructor that
the student has the ability and knowledge to continue into this level of training.
2. A minimum of 40 logged dives with qualification as IANTD Wreck or Cavern Diver. If dives in the course below 130 fsw (39
msw) are planned the diver must have 100 logged dives.
3. Must be qualified as an IANTD Rebreather Diver.
4. This course may be taught in conjunction with a CCR Normoxic Trimix or CCR Trimix Diver course.
5. Must be a minimum of 18 years of age.
C. Program Content
1. All lectures completed with IANTD Course-specific Slides pertaining to the theory in the IANTD Wreck or Technical Wreck or
CCR Wreck Diver Student Kit. A confined water session or open water skills dive no deeper than 50 fsw (15 msw) must be
complete prior to penetration dives.
2. This course may be taught in conjunction with a Normoxic Trimix Diver or Trimix Diver course. All wreck lectures must be
completed and a score of 80% on the written exam.
3. This Program must include a minimum of 240 minutes of bottom timer to be completed within at least 6 wreck penetration
dives. At the Instructor’s discretion, dives may be credited as specified in the Standards. With maximum crediting of dives from
other Technical Diver Programs (Cave, Technical Diver and Trimix) or experience, a minimum additional 150 minutes of bottom
time must be completed on wreck dives.
4. To complete the course within the minimum specified dives with a water skills score of 80 points. With two (2) or more
additional dives the student may graduate from the course with an overall average score of 60 points.
5. Land Drills:
a. Basic use of safety lines and reels will be performed on land.
b. Simulation of wire entanglement will be practiced.
1. IANTD (RB) IANTD “S” drill chart C-3401.
2. All students must be taught the concept of gas matching.
3. All bottom mix tanks must be equipped with dual-outlet manifold valves. Independent cylinders may not be used. If a rebreather
is used, it must be equipped with adequate bailout.
4. (RB) All students must be taught the concept of gas matching based on oxygen metabolism.
5. (RB) Bailout adequate to allow 1 ½ divers to exit the cave on OC must be carried by the dive team.
6. A stage decompression cylinder containing oxygen is recommended for deco as a back up to the system.
7. A stage decompression cylinder containing oxygen or an EAN mixture with at least 50% oxygen, and appropriately labeled.
8. Two Primary regulators must provide ample gas flow. One second-stage hose must be at least five (5) feet (1.5 meters) in
length; longer hoses are recommended.
9. A primary BCD is required and a backup BCD is recommended. Back flotation is recommended. If a dry suit is used, it may
serve as the backup BCD.
10. A primary and backup dive planning/monitoring device such as bottom timer or computer or decompression-capable rebreather
controller. IANTD Dive Tables must be carried on all dives as a primary decompression reference or as a form of backup.
11. Two reels: one (1) for penetration and one (1) for decompression / lift bag deployment.
12. A lift bag of at least 50-lb (22.5-kg) lift capacity for a decompression marker.
13. Two lights: one (1) primary light (minimum 20 watts) and one (1) backup safety light.
15. Bolt snap hooks are recommended for all equipment attached to divers, as they are less prone to entanglement.
16. A backup cutting tool is recommended.
E. Program Limits
1. No dives may be conducted to depths greater than the qualification of the student, or 170 fsw (51 msw), whichever is
2. Oxygen partial pressure may not exceed 1.4 ATA during the working portion of the dives, nor exceed 1.61 ATA during the
decompression portion of the dives. For the Technical Wreck Diver Program, a minimum of 6 dives must be completed using
EANx with at least 23% oxygen.
3. (RB) CCR Oxygen partial pressure may not exceed 1.3 ATA during the working portion of the dives, nor exceed 1.4 ATA during
the decompression portion of the dives. At 20 fsw (6 msw) a flush to 1.6 may be used to check cell performance.
4. Decompression Gas mixtures:
a. Air-qualified divers may breathe EAN 32 during decompression, if briefed on its use.
b. EANx-qualified divers may breathe up to EAN 40 during decompression.
c. Advanced EANx-qualified divers may breathe up to EAN 50 during decompression.
d. Technical Divers or students enrolled in the Technical Wreck Program may breathe any EANx mixture or oxygen during
decompression and use accelerated decompression schedules accordingly.
5. All dives must be completed within both the IANTD oxygen CNS% and OTU limits (Technical Wreck Diver Program only).
6. The Rule of Thirds must be applied from the point of entering the overhead environment until safe exit from the overhead
environment portion of the dive.
