Commit to become a technical diver and go beyond the possibilities of the PADI Tec 40 course.

Commit to become a technical diver and go beyond the possibilities of the PADI Tec 40 course. The PADI Tec 45 is the second of three courses which, if taken together and consecutively, would add up to what is known as the PADI Tec Deep (PADI Tec 40 + PADI Tec 45 + PADI Tec 50).

During the course you will be diving in full technical diving equipment. The initial configuration is in backmount. Nonetheless, on request at little extra charge, you can do the course in sidemount and add up the Tec Sidemount certification. Your instructor will explain you the advantages of diving with a sidemount configuration and how to set up a tec sidemount harness and to configure it with multiple cylinders for technical diving.

What will you learn?

During eight days of intense training, including knowledge development sections, practical assessments and open water dives, your instructor will challenge your limits. While going through the education of Tec 40 & Tec 45 training, your tec instructor will introduce you the skills, equipment and planning that you need to dive to a maximum of 45 metres. You plan and execute single and repetitive decompression dives using a single stage cylinder of EANx or oxygen to accelerate or add conservatism to the decompression stops. Your instructor prepares you to foresee, avoid and respond to technical diving emergencies. You will master the skills and procedures you’ll need as you move into deeper technical diving.

You will need to have a minimum of 50 logged dives, with at least 12 dives on enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres and 10 dives deeper than 30 metres. If you do not fulfil all required prerequisites yet, we can implement the needed training prior to starting your course.

In case you are already a certified Tec 40 diver and want to upgrade to Tec 45, price and time will be reduced accordingly.
