The PADI Tec 40 course is the first part of the full PADI Deep Diver program, and is where you transition from no stop recreational scuba diving towards full technical deep decompression diving.
You start to build technical diving knowledge and skills, and gain technical diving experience. The PADI Tec 40 course qualifies you to make limited decompression dives to 40 metres/130 feet.
What will I learn?
The PADI Tec 40 course consists of three knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions, and four open water training dives.
You’ll learn about:
- Technical diving’s risks and responsibilities
- Technical diving equipment, correct 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)
