Tec Deep Diver
 

 
Discover Tec

Discover Tec allows divers curious about tec diving to try out a full technical rig in controlled conditions. Because of the emphasis on trying tec diving, the use of a full, standardized technical setup as required for Tec 45 and beyond is recommended. Discover Tec may be credited towards the Tec 40 course if you meet all performance requirements for the dive. However, performing the skills is not required for the experience.

You will need your basic scuba gear and you will try technical scuba diving equipment such as twin tanks, manifold, lift bag and stage tanks which will be supplied as part of the experience.
 

Prerequisites

PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent, 18 years, 10 logged dives.

Duration

1/2 day, 1 confined or limited open water dive.


 


Tec 40

The Tec 40 course introduces divers to limited decompression diving within accepted recreational depth limits. The equipment requirements are only a bit beyond those of the standard recreational kit and among other things include an additional deco cylinder. Candidates interested in continuing their tec education later can do the course in a full tec rig.

A Tec 40 diver is qualified to use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with not more than 10 minutes of total decompression and not deeper than 40 meters and use a single cylinder of decompression gas. The breathing gas (same for bottom and deco) may include up to 50 percent oxygen.
 

Prerequisites

  • Physician's approval (medical statement) not older than one year.
  • PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent & amp; PADI Enriched Air Diver or equivalent.
  • PADI Deep Diver or equivalent or show proof of at least 10 dives to 30 metres.
  • 30 logged dives, of which at least 10 dives were made with enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres.

Duration

3 days, knowledge development, 1 confined or limited open water dive and 3 open water dives.

Materials

Tec Deep Diver Manual (not included in the course fee).


 


Tec 45

A Tec 45 diver is qualified to make single and repetitive dives to a maximum depth of 45 metres and to use a single decompression gas of EANx, or oxygen, to accelerate or add conservatism to the decompression.

In addition to the Tec 40 course requirements, the Tec 45 course consists of knowledge development, three practical application sessions, one confined or limited open water dive, two open water no stop dives (simulated decompression) and one open water decompression dive.
 

Prerequisites

  • Physician's approval medical statement not older than one year.
  • PADI Tec 40 diver or equivalent.
  • PADI Rescue Diver or equivalent.
  • Have a minimum of 50 logged dives, of which at least 12 dives were made with enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres, and at least 6 dives were deeper than 30 metres.
Duration

3 days, knowledge development, 1 confined or limited open water dive and 3 open water dives.

Materials

Tec Deep Diver Manual (not included in the course fee).


 

 

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.
 

Prerequisites

  • Physician's approval medical statement not older than one year.
  • PADI Tec 45 diver or equivalent.
  • PADI Rescue Diver or equivalent.
  • Have a minimum of 100 logged dives, of which at least 20 dives were made with enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres, and at least 15 dives were deeper than 30 metres.
Duration

3 days, knowledge development, 1 confined or limited open water dive and 3 open water dives.

Materials

Tec Deep Diver Manual (not included in the course fee).
