Hey all,

As a follow up to a discussion I started a couple years ago, I'm happy to say I am now the first certified T1 commercial diver in Canada. Medical took about 2 years, some R+D and a lot of chamber runs. Have about 10 dives in now in the last couple weeks with no issues.

There's a slew of restrictions but seeing as I'm the first, they will likely be relaxed as time goes on. Even made a glucose delivery system for the kirby morgan hats (17 - 77) for those long dives.

Anyway, if you run across anyone in a similar position, I'm happy to give some guidance.
