Tec 40

Purpose:

PADI Tec 40 course introduces divers to limited decompression diving within accepted recreational depth limits. Although the student who clearly intends to continue through Tec 50 is encouraged to complete Tec 40 in complete tec diving gear, the limits of the Tec 40 qualification allow more flexibility. Therefore, to accommodate divers interested in very limited tec diving, the Tec 40 equipment requirements are only a bit beyond those of the standard recreational kit.

Tec Trimix Diver

Purpose:

For the extreme diver ready to further explore the world of technical deep diving, the gas of choice is trimix. The Tec Trimix Diver course takes you to the outer edges of
technical deep diving, and opens the door to pristine dive sites few divers – if any – ever see.

 

 

Prerequisites:

·  Certification as a PADI Rescue Diver or a qualifying certification in diver rescue and accident management from another organization

(Students who meet this through a qualifying non-PADI certification need to provide proof of CPR and first aid training within the previous two
years.)

·  Certification as a DSAT Tec Deep Diver or a qualifying certification in deep decompression diving using air/enriched air from another organization

(Students who qualify through a certification other than DSAT Tec Deep Diver must read the entire DSAT Tec Deep Diver Manual and complete the
Knowledge Reviews before beginning the Tec Trimix Diver course)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Duration:

This course is conducted over a period of 4-5 days.

 

 

 

 

Limits:

The Trimix Diver course is intended to extend the available depth range for technical divers who are already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air, and oxygen
for technical decompression dives to depths beyond 50 metres/165 feet in open water. The Trimix Diver course is intended for technical divers certified as DSAT Tec
Deep Divers (or with an equivalent qualifying certification from another training organization). The course extends their depth range capabilities by training them in
the use of trimix (a gas mix of helium, oxygen, and nitrogen).

 

 

 

 

Requirements:

Each diver will be required to have a complete set of personal dive equipment, including:

 

 

·  Diving cylinder with at least 80 cubic feet or 2 diving cylinders at least 80 cft back mount or sidemount (minimum size of 80 cf each, preferably larger)

·  Primary & secondary regulators

  • One with a seven foot hose for air sharing
  • One with an SPG

·  (2) Stage/decompression cylinders with regulator, SPG &amp staging kit – properly labeled

·  Back-up decompression cylinders as required

·  BC, back plate & harness (either dual bladder or dual wings, unless drysuit diving)

·  Depth gauge/computer and back-up depth gauge/computer

·  Timing device and backup timing device

·  Trimix decompression information (tables/trimix computer) and backup decompression information

·  Appropriate exposure protection (dry suit use requires prior technical dry suit diving experience)

·  Weight system (if needed)

·  Jon line (if needed for current diving environments)

·  Reel

·  Lift bag (100 lbs min)

·  Knife/cutting device and backup

·  Wrist slate
