Nitrox Diver & Refresher course – April 2018

Breathing Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx) has a number of benefits, which include extending your in-water dive time, and reducing your risk of decompression illness. Bottom-line: you will have more time to dance around the coral reefs and swim with the colorful fish! Whether you seek a full Nitrox certification, or wish to refresh your Nitrox diving skills, this HHUC offering is for you!

Certification option:  For divers holding a SCUBA diver or currently enrolled in an HHUC learn to SCUBA course.  This course includes a mandatory e-learning and a 1-evening practical workshop.  The open-water dives will be offered based on availability.  Fees: $142 for HHUC members, $171 for the general public.

Refresher option: For divers who already hold a Nitrox SCUBA certification and desire a refresher practical session on EANx diving.  Participants will attend the 1-evening practical workshop with the full certification students. Fees: $30 for HHUC members, $40 for the general public.

Dates:

  • e-learning begins on April 10th or upon full payment for the course, and must be completed before the workshop.
  • workshop: April 17th, from 6:30PM – 10:30PM.

Register now – UofT students and the general public may visit http://harthouse.ca/scuba-diving/ or contact the Hart House front desk (416) 978-2452.  Non-UofT HHUC members are to contact moc.liamgnull@gniniart.cuhh in order to request the member rate.  Registration closes on April 14th.  Secure your spot now!

HST applies to all fees above. Materials are non-refundable once consumed. All participants must be OUC members in good standing.  An OUC membership can be purchased in the classroom for $40.

Scuba Skills Workshops and Fitness Tuesdays

Dates: On February 6, 27, and March 13

Time: 9-11 p.m.

Location: Athletic Centre Pool (55 Harbord St., Toronto)

Two concurrent sessions will be run on these evenings:

1) Scuba Skills Workshops: Instructor-led Scuba Skills Workshop for certified divers

2)  Fitness Tuesdays: Training for fitness, skin diving and apnea as well as playing underwater hockey. You do not need to be a certified diver to take part (new students are welcome).

Bring your fins, mask and snorkel… and a bathing suit and towel. We will be exercising and get warm, so neoprene is not really necessary unless you get cold really easily.
