Using and advancing your skills from the PADI Tec 40 course, in the Tec 45 course you will start using any mixture of Nitrox and even 100% oxygen, to plan and conduct dives requiring some accelerated decompression with gas switches during dives to 45 meters. Yes that’s right, we’re going to be adding another tank to your dive configuration and going deeper… AWESOME!
This qualification represents a high level of competency for a technical diver. Diving now to 50 meters using two additional stage/deco cylinders requires accurate planning and near perfect diving skills. Here you will plan advanced dive profiles, extended range dive schedules using EANx and oxygen for accelerated decompression.
The Tec Deep Course combines Tec40, Tec45 and Tec50. A challenging combination of courses, this will take sport divers into advanced decompression diving, conducting dives to a maximum of 50 meters with staged decompression on two different gases mixes.
As sport divers planned decompression is not something that we do or have been taught. The TDI Decompression Procedures course prepares you for planned staged decompression diving. With a maximum operating depth of 45m, this course is your first step beyond the normal sport diving depth limits.
The TDI Decompression Procedures course combined with the TDI Intro to Tech and Advanced Nitrox courses form the foundation of all other technical courses. After these courses and some additional experience, the stage has been set for you to move onto more advanced technical levels.
Building on the foundational skills you already have from TDI Decompression Procedures or PADI Tec45, this course teaches you to utilise air as a deep diving gas to 55 meters. This is especially useful in areas offering spectacular technical dives beyond 40 meters without ready access to helium. Students learn about the procedures, equipment requirements and hazards involved in deep air diving with two different decompression gases.
Combining Intro to Tech, Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures, this course package takes you from tech diving beginner all the way into decompression diving. The combo is equivalent to PADI TEC40 and TEC45 – able to dive to 45m using a range of gases to either increase multi-level no stop time or to accelerate your decompression using a high oxygen mix up to 100% to shorten stop times.
Adding the TDI Extended Range course to the combination above allows already experienced divers to go all the way from the basics of technical diving to the limits of air diving with two different decompression gases. A challenge both in the water and on land, this combination is perfect for divers looking to truly immerse themselves in technical diving and develop their existing dive skills to a high level.
