Are you interested in technical diving but you are not sure that you will like it yet? Start your Tec 40 Course now!

Learn the basics but at the moment you do not have the need to get into full technical deep decompression diving. The PADI Tec 40 course is ideal for you. Designed to introduce you to the world of technical diving, it is the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver Course. You start gaining knowledge, experience and skills to continue your tec diver training.

We will take you one step beyond recreational diving limits.

What will you learn?

During four days of training, including knowledge development sections, practical assessments and open water dives, your instructor will introduce you to technical diving’s risks and responsibilities, explain you about the use and set up of the technical diving equipment. You plan your gas supply, oxygen limits and decompression. You learn about special team diving techniques and emergency procedures.

You will qualified 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. You will be entitled to use a single cylinder of decompression gas with up to 50 percent oxygen (EANx50) to add conservatism to the required decompression.

Have a minimum of 30 logged dives, of which at least 10 dives were made with enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres. If you do not fulfil all required prerequisites yet, we can implement the needed training in the beginning of your course.
