PADI Tec 40 certification course

First part of the full PADI Tec deep program.
The detailed combination of knowledge development, practical application sessions and training dives are perfectly tailored for the diver looking to transition from recreational diving to technical diving.

Course Description:

The PADI Tec 40 course is the link between recreational scuba diving and technical diving.
The first part of the full PADI Tec course is a great place to start your technical diving adventure. It bridges the gap between no stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving.
You will gain experience and begin building the knowledge and skills you need to continue your tec diver training.
You will qualify to make limited decompression dives to 40 metres (1 deco mix with a maximum of 50% of oxygen).

Course prerequisites:

-A PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.
-A PADI Enriched Air Diver with at least 10 dives using enriched air deeper than 18 metres.
-A PADI Deep Diver or proof of at least 10 dives to 30 metres.
-At least 18 years old and have a minimum of 30 logged dives.
-A Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
-Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply.

Course structure/aims:

The Tec 40 course consists of three knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions and four training dives.
You’ll learn about:
-Technical diving’s risks and responsibilities.
-Technical diving equipment, proper rigging and set up.
-Gas planning, oxygen limits and decompression planning.
-Team diving techniques and emergency procedures, such as dealing with free flows, manifold leaks and out of gas situations.


You’ll start with your basic scuba diving equipment and add technical equipment, which essentially means you’ll begin to double up on gear.
You may dive with backmounted or sidemounted cylinders.
Your PADI Tec Instructor may have you dive with EANx for additional conservatism.


2 to 3 days.

Hire of twinset, stages and weights, gases, instructor, land transport to dive sites and certification card.
