Maximise your bottom time and make your dive last longer. Learn the modern way and use a dive computer to constantly analyse your depth and your ascents to shallower levels. In the old days, we would calculate a dive profile from the surface, straight down to a maximum depth then back to the surface. Now, with the use of dive computers, we are in a position to continually analyse our depth. This enables us to calculate for more bottom time by going shallower, allowing us to maximise our dive time.
The Multilevel Diver Specialty course is a great way to learn how to plan multi-level dives with a computer, the Wheel version and the eRDPml. Learn how to plan dives that extend your bottom time by crediting you for slower nitrogen absorption when you ascend to a shallower depth. Since there is so much to see underwater you’ll want to make the most of you stay and stay as long as possible. The Multilevel Diver Specialty is the course where you will learn how to achieve these goals.
Who should take this course?
Quite a few years ago, all divers calculated their dive profile from the surface, down to the maximum depth of their planned dive, then directly back to the surface. Today it is different, dive computers calculate and analyse your depth constantly, updating your dive profile as you go. If you go to shallower depths your computer will grant you more bottom time, due to less Nitrogen intake. If you would like to learn more about dive computers and the PADI eRDPML to plan multiple dives in one day, then this is the course for you.
