Technical Scuba Diving courses: The PADI Tec 60 Closed Circuit Rebreather trimix.
If you want to go deeper with your CCR Rebreather you need to learn to dive with a trimix gas, as below 50 meters (165 feet) with air as a diluent it become dangerous (see Why do you need to take this course below).
As you go deeper you will also get more decompression stops, and you need to improve and learn how to decompress properly and handle multiple stage tanks (cylinders) as well to plan your bail out with these cylinders (tanks).
As you know already as a Tec 40 CCR Rebreather diver, the Rebreather has many advantages that open circuit do not have, thus in this course you will learn how to use these advantages with longer decompression dives as well as planning your bail out with, and, or using a buddy.
To take this course you need to be a Tec 40 CCR Rebreather diver or equivalent, have at least 150 logged dives and 50 hours diving a type "T" CCR Rebreather.
Where to learn the Tec 60 CCR Rebreather?
Our technical diving facilities are based in Mactan (Cebu region), because the international airport is within 20 mn from our headquarters in Mactan which is fully equiped with the latest technical diving technology.
But the most important is that, around Mactan island, we have the best diving spots to teach tec diving up to 100 - 120 meters (330 - 400 feet) of depth just in front of our headquarters, as well as having the best fun tec dive's sites all around.

Why do you need to take the PADI Tec 60 CCR Rebreather course?
The PADI Tec 60 CCR Rebreather course is the second level in tec diving closed circuit rebreather. In this course, you will be able to dive down to a maximum of 60 meters (200 feet) using a trimix as diluent.
You will learn that your PPN2 (Partial Pressure of Nitrogen) will increase more than an open circuit dive below 50 meters (165 feet). This is due to your PN2 that will grow faster because of the PO2 set point, between 1.2 - 1.3, is the same than an open circuit on air at 50 meters. Thus increasing the narcosis effect at an impressive rate if you go deeper with a diluent containing air.
Why going deeper will increase the narcosis effect faster on a rebreather than open circuit? Because below 50 meters of depth, your PO2 will stay the same (set-point), thus the percentage of nitrogen increase. A new risk occurs below 50 meters; it's impossible to flush your loop if the O2 excess your set-point as you go deeper.
The explanations above are one of the main reasons you need to learn how to dive with a trimix gas in your diluent to counter the nitrogen effect below 50 meters (165 feet) and be able to flush your loop between 50 and 60 meters (200 feet).
