The best PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course of the Marine Protected Area of Egadi.
PADI TEC 45
- Tec 45
The PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. You’ll extend your depth limit to 45 meters and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives using a single stage/decompression cylinder. It puts you in a complete tec diving rig. You’ll also make accelerated decompression dives using EANx or pure oxygen. This is a course where you’ll rise to the challenge and make the commitment to become a technical diver.
To enroll in the TEC 45 course, you must:
- Be a PADI Tec 40 diver
- Be a PADI Rescue Diver
- Have a minimum of 50 logged dives, with at least 12 dives on enriched air nitrox deeper than 18 metres and 6 dives deeper than 30 metres
- Be at least 18 years old
- Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months
Your Tec 45 training consists of three knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions and four open water dives. Building on what you learned in the Tec 40 course, you focus on the function and maintenance of tec diving equipment and associated issues. You continue fine-tuning gas planning and calculating accelerated decompression stops. Plus, you learn to think like a technical diver.
You’ll use full technical equipment, which includes wings and doubles plus an additional deco cylinder. Your PADI Tec Deep Instructor will explain the gear required for your tec diving adventures.
