What does it mean to become a technical diver?
Technical scuba diving is not only extreme diving as it can be also a type of recreational diving. A Tec diver can stay longer underwater, and sometimes at deeper depths, with proper technical scuba gears and gases.
Everyone can literally be a technical diver even if it's just to stay a lot longer underwater.
A technical scuba diver may have the priviledge to dive deeper than 40 meters (130 feet) with the acquired skills and knowledge in technical diving. Tec divers also have the proper diving equipments and mixed gases in order for them to dive longer to achieve a greater depth.
The Tec diver is initially equipped with the knowledge about the risk and how to handle it in order to have a safe and fun tec dive. They are thaught and trained in switching between gases depending the decompression time and the depth.

Why a Tec Diver needs to carry all those tanks (cylinders)?
Yes they do, but...
If a Tec diver often carries many tanks (cylinders) underwater (no underwater it's not heavy at all), they even more often dive with just a double tanks or pair of tanks(cylinders).
You can swim fast too with many tanks(cylinders). During a technical diving course, you will learn some unique propulsion skills and will understand how easy it is to move and carry many tanks (cylinders) even against a high current.
On a classic, basic and non hypoxic configuration a tec diver have a set of twin tanks (cylinders) at the back and 1 to 2 sling tanks (cylinders) on the left side, familiaryly called deco (deco stand for decompression) tanks.
The back gas (twin tanks) is the bottom gas, the gas or mixed gas you use during your dive (like a recreational diver). The standard deco tanks are usually a 50 percent nitrox's tank and an O2 (100% oxygen) tank used to accelerate the decompression time which can be cut down to more than 50 percent.
For example if your decompression time using air as a deco gas is 1 hour, with a 50% nitrox and an O2 gas it can become as short as 25mn of decompression time only.
