Who Should Take This Course?
The Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving. It’s a great place to start because it’s the first subdivision of the full Tec Diver course and bridges the gap between no stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving. You gain experience and begin building the knowledge and skills you need to continue your tec diver training. You will qualify to make limited decompression dives to 40 metres/130 feet.
To enrol in the Tec 40 course, you must be:
Advanced Open Water Diver
Enriched Air/Nitrox diver with at least 10 dives using enriched air deeper than 18 metres/60 feet
Deep diver or proof of at least 10 dives to 30 metres/100 feet
At least 18 years old and have a minimum of 30 logged dives
You also need to have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply – ask your Tec Deep Instructor.
What will you learn?
The Tec 40 course consists of three knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions and four training dives. You’ll learn about:
Technical diving’s risks and responsibilities
Technical diving equipment, proper rigging and set up
Gas planning, oxygen limits and decompression planning
Team diving techniques and emergency procedures, such as dealing with free flows, manifold leaks and out of gas situations
How Can I Start Learning Now?
Contact Sea Dragon Charters and get your Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak which you can start reading right away. You'll continue to use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak through your Tec 45 and Tec 50 courses.
What Gear Will I Use?
You’ll start with your basic scuba diving equipment and add technical equipment, which essentially means you’ll begin to double up on gear. You may dive with backmounted or sidemounted cylinders. Your Tec Instructor may have you dive with EANx for additional conservatism.
