Tec Trimix Instructor


Philosophy

The PADI Tec Trimix Instructor training course provides training as a Tec Trimix Instructor for Tec Deep Instructors who have the Tec Trimix Diver certification or a qualifying full trimix certification from another organization. PADI Instructors who have successfully completed the Tec Deep Instructor training course may also take the Tec Trimix Instructor training course.

The Tec Trimix Instructor training course offers the candidate several benefits. First, the candidate may enroll and begin training for instructor level before meeting all the experience requirements. Second, candidates develop and practice their skills and knowledge in a role-model environment. Third, candidates who take the Tec Trimix Instructor training course may complete the Tec Trimix Instructor Examinations without having to do so at a scheduled Instructor Examination.

As a Tec Trimix Instructor you'll be qualified to teach the Tec Trimix 65 and Tec Trimix courses and all Tec Deep diver courses from Discover Tec to Tec 50.
