    Hi folks,

    SNSI (Scuba Nitrox Safety International) is joining Scubaboard and is happy to be here.

    Most of you may know me as the guy that runs Deep 6, and that hasn't changed. I am also the Director of Operations for SNSI US and Canada which is separate from Deep 6. We are setting up the US office in my building in Georgia where Deep 6 is and it's a dedicated and seperate area and I'll be sharing some pictures here very shortly.

    Glad to have you here! Glad to hear you're going to have such an emphasis on neutral buoyancy.

    Interesting training progression!
    Welcome aboard. Here's a few questions to get the discussion flowing:

    Looking at the website, it seems the first level of tec diving is 7 session academics and 4 dive cert program to dive air to 167ft (170ft on the card?)? Planned using VBM and 100% o2 for deco?

    Another 4 dives and 2 classroom session to get to hypoxic trimix?

    What are the prerequisites for starting the tec program? For example could a padi AOW diver be enrolled?

    Very nice website and looks like a good program. The freely downloadable elearning looks like a nice feature.
    I was under the impression SNSI has been around quite a long time. Do you have US shops that are not listed on your website?

    Looks like a great program. Only critique I will give is maybe check for typos on some of the web pages. I noticed a few just in my short visit under the Professional tab.

    75 dives if a rescue diver(and nitrox) 100 dives if AOW with Nitrox. Plus there is the Essential Tech to get folks ready if they need it.
