PADI Tec 50 Diver

The Tec 50 course completes the basic level technical training before advancing on to your Trimix courses. It also completes your training as an entry-level tec diver, taking you past the limits of recreational diving.

You will make actual decompression dives as deep as 50 metres/165 feet, use enriched air nitrox and/or oxygen for decompression and use desk top decompression software to create custom dive tables and plan your dives, qualify to make technical decompression dives independently in teams of 2 or more.

The course will include classroom theory and equipment configuration and dives with two of your 50 metre dives being at Sipadan (*Subject to Sipadan Permit availability).

We will teach you how to execute planned decompression dives using decompression software with up to two gases to accelerate your decompression.

We will take you on two training dives and two accelerated decompression dives making this the most fun course out of all the PADI Tec courses. It also means you will be spending time towards practicing what you have learnt in the other courses.

The course will be spread over three days and consists of four dives.

  • Be a PADI Tec 45 Diver.
