Technical Diving

Tec 40

Overview

The PADI Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving. It’s a great place to start because it’s the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Diver course and bridges the gap between no stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving. You gain experience and begin building the knowledge and skills you need to continue your tec diver training. You will qualify to make limited decompression dives to 40 metres/130 feet.

Requirements

  • Advanced Open Water Diver

  • Enriched Air Diver with at least 10 dives using enriched air deeper than 18 meters/60 feet

  • Deep Diver or proof of at least 10 dives to 30 metres/100 feet

  • At least 18 years old and have a minimum of 30 logged dives

Tec 45

Overview

The PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. You’ll extend your depth limit to 45 metres/145 feet and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives using a single stage/decompression cylinder. It puts you in a complete tec diving rig, which can be either backmount or sidemount. You’ll also make accelerated decompression dives using EANx or pure oxygen. This is a course where you’ll rise to the challenge and make the commitment to become a technical diver.

Requirements

  • Be a PADI Tec 40 diver

  • Be a PADI Rescue Diver

  • Have a minimum of 50 logged dives, with at least 12 dives on enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres/60 feet and 6 dives deeper than 30 metres/100 feet

  • Be at least 18 years old

  • Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months

Tec 50

Overview

The third part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program is Tec 50. As a Tec 50 diver, you show that you’ve developed competency as a tec diver and have the skills to dive to a maximum of 50 metres/165 feet. You know how to make extended, accelerated decompression stops using up to two gases. It’s not easy to reach this level and earning your Tec 50 certification opens the door to deeper diving expeditions.

Requirements

  • Be a PADI Tec 45 diver

  • Have a minimum of 100 logged dives, with at least 20 dives on enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres/60 feet and 15 dives deeper than 30 metres/100 feet

  • Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months

Tec Trimix 65

Overview

If you’re into technical diving then you know that to extend your depth range you need to use trimix – a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen. The Tec Trimix 65 course introduces you to using trimix down to a maximum depth of 65 metres/210 feet. There are advantages to using three gases, but you need to know how to do it right. Earning the Tec Trimix 65 certification makes deeper exploration a reality.

Requirements

  • Are a PADI Tec 50 diver

  • Have a minimum of 100 logged dives

  • Are at least 18 years old

  • Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months

Tec Trimix

Overview

Ready for the outer edge of technical diving? The Tec Trimix Diver course takes experienced tec divers and turns them into extreme divers who go deeper and visit pristine sites where few others will ever go. During the course, you’ll make dives as deep as 90 metres/300 feet, but once you earn this tough certification, there are few limits. Your training teaches you to build experience gradually and you do it because you’ve made it this far and have more exploring to do.

Requirements

  • Be a PADI Tec 50 diver or Tec Trimix 65 diver

  • Have a minimum of 150 logged dives

  • Are at least 18 years old

  • Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months

Tec Gas Blender

Overview

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is the most popular diver specialty course and the number of technical divers is on the rise, which means that lots of scuba divers want enriched air and gas blends. The Tec Gas Blender course teaches you to blend enriched air nitrox and helium-blend gases using one or more blending methods. Being the blender is a key job at a busy PADI Dive Center or Resort and your work allows other divers to do what they love to do – scuba dive.

Requirements

If you’re a PADI Enriched Air Diver and are at least 18 years old, you can enroll in a Tec Gas Blender course.
