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.

Wow that is fantastic news. Congratulations on such a great accomplishment. You should be extremely proud of yourself and I am very grateful you can give other D's your heard earhed expertise especially about diving.

Congratulations diadiver! You've opened the door to other T1's interested in commercial diving. You should be proud.
