This truly is scuba diving’s extreme sport.
Technical diving opens up a whole new range of diving options where experienced qualified divers venture far deeper and require significantly more equipment and training to be able to manage the additional hazards this type of diving entails.
Technical Diving begins with the PADI Tec 40 course.
What is involved
- One dive is in confined water and many divers start the Tec 40 courses in the winter months, ready to continue in open water when spring arrives.
- 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 meters/130 feet.
- Learn to use a single cylinder of decompression gas with up to 50 percent oxygen (EANx50) to add conservatism to the required decompression.
- Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or qualifying equivalent)
- Be a PADI Enriched Air Diver (or qualifying equivalent).
- Be a PADI Deep Diver (or qualifying equivalent – or show proof of at least 10 dives to 30 meters/100 feet).
- Minimum 30 logged dives, of which 10+ dives were made with enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 meters / 60 feet.
- Have a medical form signed by your physician.
