What You Can Do: Your depth limit is 165 feet. You are allowed to make longer dives beyond the no-decompression limit. You can use two cylinders of gas with up to 100% Oxygen to add conservatism to your decompression or accelerate your decompression.

Prerequisites: Be certified as a Tec 45 diver. Must be 18 years old, have 100 logged dives (20 deeper than 60 feet using EANx, at least 15 deeper than 100 feet).
