4. Rescue exercises to partner.

5. Unconscious diver assistance exercises.

6. Properly analyze the mixtures of each of its bottles

7. Properly plan and analyze dives by determining

· Orientation Planning

· Diving and Deco planning

Stress and relaxation analysis

Similarity of gases within the dive

2. Demonstrate satisfactory consideration of the binomial and other members of the dive through communication, proximity and certain dives.

3. Demonstrate the ability to manage two ponys (either 2 deco gases or a Deco gas and blend pony background) including knowing how to remove and deliver a Deco pony while maintaining the immersion level.
