The next frontier
PADI TEC TRIMIX
Who SHOULD TAKE THE COURSE
Ready for the outer edge of technical diving? The Tec Trimix Diver course takes experienced tec divers and turns them into extreme divers who go deeper and visit pristine sites where few others will ever go. During the course, you’ll make dives as deep as 90 metres/300 feet, but once you earn this tough certification, there are few limits. Your training teaches you to build experience gradually and you do it because you’ve made it this far and have more exploring to do.
Step 1 – Theory Lesson
- Trimix diving depth ranges
- Exposure planning
- Selecting a mix
- Argon inflation systems
- Handling three or four decompression cylinders
- Decompression models
- Emergency procedures
- Decompression software and multi-gas computers
- Gas selection options, especially deco gases
- Bubble models and deep stops
- Using multigas trimix computers
- Handling up to four stage/deco cylinders
Step 2 – POOL Lesson
Once you are done with your theory lessons, it is time to move onto pool training where you will learn how to use the scuba diving equipment you have read about, using the right amount of weights, trimming, buoyancy and other skills that allows you to be a safe diver.
There will be a total of 3 training pools.
The pool sessions are conducted on any Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm to 10pm and should you need additional lessons, that can be arranged on any other Wednesday evenings as well. The pool sessions are conducted over at Outram Secondary School.

Step 3 – OCEAN DIVES
When you are done with your theory and pool training, it is time to decide where you would want to go to complete your 4 required ocean dives.
Orpheus Dive offers many different packages catering to your budget and also your need for comfort and experience.
Local Diving Course – Designed for divers who wants to obtain their certification without leaving the country. The visibility around Singapore water is not the best in Asia, with an average underwater visibility of about 3 to 4 metres. The 4 required ocean dives are conducted over two seperate weekends on Sunday mornings.
Budget Tioman Trips – Designed for divers who wants to be trained by our experienced instructors but do not wish to have all the comfort and ease of diving. Please note, such packages requires almost a total 10 hours per way. The chalets in such packages are generally quad sharing (two twin sharing beds) in a “rustic” wooden chalets. DO NOT EXPECT ANY FORM OF SERVICES from the chalets in this package.
Bali Weekend Getaway – Designed for divers who can take 1.5 days off from work. Bali as a diving destination is renowned and the bungalows we used are designed for comfort for 2 divers. All we have gotten as reviews from divers are “Value for Money”, “Great Diving”, “Much better than the tiring Tioman Trips” and “Extreme luxurious trip at affordable prices”.
Liveaboard Diving from Singapore – For divers who want the comfort without taking off from work, another option we provide are liveaboard departing from Singapore. Whilst liveaboard is not as comfortable as our Bali trips, it is significantly much better than the budget Tioman trips as well.

PADI TECREC COURSES
Technical (tec) diving means going beyond recreational scuba diving limits. But, tec divers will tell you that it’s really about the challenge and adventure of exploring places that no one else has ever seen. Tec diving is not for everyone, but it does attract experienced divers who want to go beyond their current limits and are willing to accept the added risks, training, investment and commitment it demands. If this is you, then PADI TecRec courses are your ticket to extreme adventure.
