PADI Tec – 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.

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.

Why PADI Tec 40? If you’re interested in technical diving, but haven’t yet met the prerequisites for the PADI Tec Deep Diver course, you can consider enrolling in the PADI Tec 40 course. Tec 40 is the first rung in the Tec Deep ladder, the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver course consists of the first three dives. You will learn to use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with no more than 10 minutes of total decompression and not deeper than 40 metres. 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.

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. Since it’s part of the course, your PADI Tec 40 course training credits toward the PADI Tec 45 and Tec50 courses.
