PADI TecRec

PADI TecRec courses are the benchmarks of quality in the technical diving industry due to their in depth, but logical, training plans and the PADI educational materials that support them.

TecRec courses are instructionally valid and have a smooth, uninterrupted course flow that guides you from a new tec diver to one qualified to dive to the very edge of sport diving. Each level introduces you to new equipment and procedures to broaden your dive limits.

*All courses include full technical equipment but DO NOT include certification fees or student materials.
*All Tec Trimix courses are based on twin 12 ltrs, maximum 200 Bar.
Tec 40

Technical diving begins with the PADI Tec 40 course. One dive is in confined water. You will learn to use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with no more than 10 minutes of total decompression and not deeper than 40 metres and learn to use a single cylinder of decompression gas with up to 50 percent oxygen (EANx50) to add conservatism to the required decompression.

PREREQUISITES

  • Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or qualifying equivalent)

  • Be a PADI Enriched Air Diver (or qualifying equivalent)

  • Be a PADI Deep Diver (or qualifying equivalent – or show proof of at least 10 dives to 30 metres)

  • Minimum 30 logged dives, of which 10+ dives were made with enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres 

  • Have a medical form signed by your physician

Price…………………….€345.00

Tec 45

During this course you will learn the diving skills and planning needed to dive to a maximum of 45 metres, along with how to use the technical equipment confidently, you will also gain the knowledge required to plan and execute single repetitive decompressions dives using a single stage cylinder of EANx or oxygen to accelerate or add conservatism to the decompression stops. You will prepare for and response to foreseeable technical diving emergencies and master the basic skills and procedures you’ll need as you move into deeper technical diving.

PREREQUISITES

  • Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, Rescue Diver and Enriched Air Diver

  • Be a PADI Tec 40 Diver (or qualifying equivalent)

  • Minimum 50 logged dives, of which 12+ dives were made with enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres and 6 dives with or without EANx deeper than 30 metres

Price…………………….€495.00

Tec 50

The PADI Tec 40 and Tec 45 courses are great introductory courses to technical diving however it is the PADI Tec 50 course that takes you past the limits of recreational diving, completing your training as an entry level technical diver. You will make actual decompression dives as deep as 50 metres, use enriched air nitrox and/or oxygen for decompression, use desk top decompression software to create custom dive tables and plan your dives, qualifying you to make technical decompression dives independently.

PREQUISITES

  • Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, Rescue Diver and Enriched Air Diver (or qualifying equivalents)

  • Be a PADI Tec 45 Diver (or qualifying equivalent)

  • Minimum 100 logged dives of which 20+ dives were made with enriched air nitrox, 25 dives are deeper than 18 metres and 20 dives are deeper than 30 metres

TEC DISTINCTIVE TRIMIX SPECIALITY
This is an optional course which can be taught to PADI Tec 45 and Tec 50 qualified divers to enable them to use trimix with a minimum of 21% Oxygen and a maximum of 20% Helium to make dives within their current TecRec certification depth limit with a planned decompression not exceeding 20 minutes.

Tec 45…………………….€200.00

Tec 50……………………€230.00

TEC TRIMIX UPGRADE

*Make the leap from Tec 50 Trimix to Full Tec Trimix Diver with this upgrade.*

The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen). You will plan and execute dives using EANX and trimix blends, use decompression software to create custom dive tables and dive plans and make training dives as deep as 90 metres.

Tec Trimix Upgrade………………€900.00

TEC TRIMIX 65 
This course opens up the advantages of trimix to the diver and divers are qualified to make multi-stop decompression dives that employ EANx and oxygen for accelerated decompression and any trimix with an oxygen content of 18% or more. They can dive to a maximum depth of 65 metres. The PADI Tec Trimix 65 course is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 metres. This course is for Tec 50 divers (or those holding a qualifying certification from another training organization). The course extends  your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen). You will plan and execute at least five dives using EANx and trimix blends,  use decompression software to create custom dive tables and dive plans and make training dives as deep as 65 metres.

TEC TRIMIX DIVER 

For the extreme diver ready to further explore the world of technical deep diving, the gas of choice is trimix – a blend of oxygen, helium and nitrogen. The PADI Tec Trimix Diver course takes you to the outer edges of technical deep diving, opening the door to pristine dive sites few divers – if any – ever see. The PADI Tec Trimix Diver course is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 metres. Diving with trimix is the outer edge of tec diving – the maximum depth for using this technology has yet to be defined. This course is for Tec 50 or Tec Trimix 65 (or those holding a qualifying certification from another training organization). The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen). You will plan and execute between three to eight dives (depending upon whether you enter the course as a Tec 50 diver or Tec Trimix 65 diver) using EANX and trimix blends, use decompression software to create custom dive tables and dive plans and make training dives as deep as 90 metres.
