Frank, I have to be honest and say that diving trimix is really easy. Understanding the profile objective (curve) is not that hard. Most of what I teach in any technical course is diving/team technique. The trimix is a small portion of it. Your profile will become less exponential and more linear than a nitrogen dive. That because helium comes out of tissue quick and is not retained in slow fatty tissue like the nitrogen. You have to start slowing the gradient at depth more so than shallow ( as compared to a nitrogen dive). And never put helium in your drysuit. Thats almost it. I wish I could give you a big line of crap like some of the agencies would like, but I can't get myself to conform. Is'nt that a suprise?
Training can't hurt unless you get bad training. We are seeing a new program hit the rec community real some. This program is going to rock the sport at an advanced recreational level. It will incompass EANx as well as Triox for the recreational diving realm.
