If you're interested in technical diving, but haven't yet met the prerequisites for the PADI Tec 50 Diver course or PADI Tec 45 course, you can consider enrolling in the PADI Tec 40 course. It is the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver course and consists of the first four dives. Because you can do one of these dives in confined water (such as a swimming pool), many divers start the Tec 40 courses in the winter months, ready to continue in open water when spring arrives.
Since it's part of the course, your PADI Tec 40 course training credits toward the PADI Tec 45 and Tec 50 courses.
You can use existing recreational gear with a few ammendments, however it is an ideal time to move up to twin cylinders, either traditional back mount or sidemount configurations. You are well prepared then to move onto Tec-45 and 50 with the same rig. We have twin sets available to hire.
You'll use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak, which introduces you to
The pack includes a manual, dive planning checklists and dive planning slate. The optional Equipment Set-up and Key Skills video on DVD is a great tool to help you practice at home in between your tec diving adventures. You'll continue to use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak through Tec 50.
