The PADI Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving. It’s a great place to start Tec Diver Marc ready to dive!because it’s the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Diver course. Tec 40 bridges the gap between no-stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving.

During the class, you’ll use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives, and use a single cylinder of decompression gas up to 50% Oxygen.

You’ll also gain experience and begin building the knowledge and skills you need to continue your tec diver training. You will learn about different gear configurations, and begin to assemble a tec kit setup. After the course, you will qualify to make limited decompression dives to 40 metres/130 feet, and explore new sites.
