Who should take this tec diving course?

The PADI Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving. It’s a great place to start because it’s the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Diver course and bridges the gap between no stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving. You 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/130 feet.

What will you learn?

The Tec 40 diving 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

Fees

SGD$ 800 excluding trip fees. Trip would be conducted onboard of Singapore Liveaboard departing from Singapore – MV The Ark. Destination and room type will dictate the fees for the trip.

This is the second step deeper into Tec Diving Courses. Learn more about importance of team diving, diving with deco tanks and accelerated decompression.

Who should take this tec diving course?

The PADI Tec 45 diving course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. You’ll extend your depth limit to 45 metres/145 feet and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives using a single stage/decompression cylinder. It puts you in a complete tec diving rig, which can be either backmount or sidemount. You’ll also make accelerated decompression dives using EANx or pure oxygen. This is a course where you’ll rise to the challenge and make the commitment to become a technical diver.
