Tec 50


The Tec 50 course is the complete, entry level skill set for extensive open circuit deep decompression tec diving. As a Tec 50 diver, you'll be qualified to use air, EANx and oxygen for multiple stop decompression dives as deep as 50 metres using standard open circuit, multiple cylinder tec diving equipment. You will also be qualified to use two decompression gases to accelerate or add conservatism to the decompression.

In addition to the Tec 45 course requirements, the Tec 50 course consists of knowledge development, two practical application sessions, two open water no stop dives with simulated decompression and two open water decompression dives.
