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.
You must be 18 years old as at enrolment.
You should have the minimum qualification:
- PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
- PADI Enriched Air Diver with at least 10 dives
- PADI Deep Diver with at least 10 dives to 30 metres
- Medical statement signed by physician within 12 months
- At least 30 logged dives
What Will You Learn?
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
Make an appointment with us to drop by at Sunny Cove to collect your Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak that includes a PADI Tec Deep Diver Manual, which you can start reading right away. You can also get an Equipment Set-up and Key Skills video, which is a great tool to help you practice skills between your tec diving adventures.
You’ll continue to use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak through your Tec 45 and Tec 50 courses.
