PADI TEC 40 Training 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.

To enroll in the Tec 40 course, you must be:

  • A PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
  • A PADI Enriched Air Diver with at least 10 dives using enriched air deeper than 18 metres/60 feet
  • A PADI Deep Diver or proof of at least 10 dives to 30 metres/100 feet
  • At least 18 years old and have a minimum of 30 logged dives

You also need to have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply.

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

How long will it take? 2-3 days

What will I need?

  • PADI TEC crew pack
  • The TEC 40 course can be completed using recreational kit + a stage cylinder though a twinset/wing combination is recommended

Price: £300 Excluding the Manual’s and equipment, Twinsets can be hired from us.
