PADI Tec Diving Courses

/// Try TEC

For those who are interested in tec diving and finding out a little more about using a different configuration of equipment, added tanks and of course, looking very cool, then Discover Tec is a good way to do so.

You will learn the basic setup of twin banded cylinders that would be back mounted as well as how to rig up and carry a stage cylinder on the side.

You will also be introduced to some of the tec skills learnt in the the first tec level course, the PADI Tec 40. DANGER, PROCEED WITH CAUTION, TEC DIVING IS ADDICTIVE!

DISCOVER TEC Prerequisite: Open water diver with 10 dives



/// Sidemount Tec Diving Courses

Find a new and different way to configure your cylinders in the PADI Sidemount Diver course. Sidemount diving offers:

  • an alternative way to streamline in the water
  • easier equipment transportation when topside
  • reduced lower back strain
  • redundant gas supply
  • ability to monitor all equipment because it’s in front of you
  • increased gas supply for longer dives

PADI Sidemount Prerequisite: PADI Open water diver and at least 15 years old.

Tec Sidemount offers the same benefits as the PADI Sidemount Diver course but gives you the opportunity to dive with up to four cylinders for extended dive times and depths.

The Tec Sidemount Diver course is a great way to start with technical diving because the skills you learn in this course will train you to handle multiple cylinders on a single dive.

You can combine what you learn in the Tec Sidemount Diver course with other open-circuit tec courses that you take, or certifications you’ve already earned, to take advantage of sidemount’s cylinder configuration and handling.

PADI TEC Sidemount Prerequisites:

  • Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
  • Have logged 30 or more dives
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Certification as PADI Enriched Air Diver is recommended

/// Open Circuit TEC Diving Courses

The Tec 40 is the entry point into the technical diving, the transition from recreational diving. During the course you will be using the full technical diving equipment configuration of twin banded tanks and carrying up to one stage tank to a maximum of 40 meters.

During this course you will learn to plan dives using up to EANx50 (advanced nitrox) with decompression software to conduct dives with up to 10min of decompression.

Sidemount option
You can use a sidemount configuration instead of twin banded tanks on the PADI TEC 40 course. If you do not already have a Sidemount certification then the PADI Sidemount Course can be run first.

TEC 40 Prerequisites:

  • Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Be a PADI Enriched Air Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)
