Tec 40

PADI Tec – Tec 40

Why PADI Tec 40?

PADI TecRec courses provide the techniques and procedures necessary for diving beyond recreational dive limits. These are some of the most intensive, yet exhilarating, courses you’ll find.

PADI Tec 40 is the first rung in the Tec Deep ladder. You will learn to use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives to 40m with no more than 10 minutes of decompression.

By the end you will be qualified to use a single cylinder of decompression gas with up to 50 percent oxygen (EANx50) to add conservatism to the required decompression.

Technical diving isn’t for everyone but if this type of diving appeals to you and you’re willing to accept the risks, responsibilities and obligations, you’ll find it one of the most rewarding dive experiences you’ll ever have.

What will you do?

  • You will learn how to use twin back mounted and manifolded tanks.
  • You’ll learn to use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with up to 10 minutes of decompression and up to 40 metres deep.
  • You’ll also be able to use a single cylinder of decompression gas with up to 50 percent oxygen (EANx50) to add conservatism to the required decompression.
  • How to make long hose donations for out of air situations.

What we will supply?

PADI Tec Deep Diver Student Manual, 1 confined water session, 3 supervised boat dives, certification card on successful completion of course.
