Who Should Take This Course?
The Tec 45 course is the second part of the full Tec Deep Diver program. You’ll extend your depth limit to 45 meters/145 feet and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives using a single stage/decompression cylinder. It puts you in a complete tec diving rig, which can be either backmount or sidemount. 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 Tec 40 diver
Be a Rescue Diver
Have a minimum of 50 logged dives, with at least 12 dives on EANx deeper than 18 meters/60 feet and 10 dives deeper than 30 meters/100 feet
Be at least 18 years old
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?
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.
How Can I Start Learning Now?
Contact Sea Dragon Charters, and if you don’t already have one, pick up a Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak which you’ll use for self-study. You'll continue to use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak through your Tec 50 course.
What Gear Will I Use?
You’ll use full technical equipment, which includes wings and doubles plus an additional deco cylinder, or you may use a technical sidemount configuration. Your Tec Deep Instructor will explain the gear required for your tec diving adventures.
