Why do you need to take the PADI Tec 40 course?

have fun with the tec 40 course Technical diving is all about redundancy, safety, and much more. This will allow you to go deeper and stay longer underwater.

You will use a set of twin tanks (double cylinders) on your back, with a manifold between the two tanks (cylinders) to cut the link (in case of a leak on one side) and two first stages (one on each valve).
Once you will learn to dive with a setup of twin tanks (double cylinders), you won't go back to recreational diving!
Why? Because underwater it's a lot more comfortable than having a single tank but most important, you have twice the amount of gas to breath!

Even more important, imagine you got a sudden big leak on one valve (or the first stage) in a regular single tank setup (one cylinder)... Will you shut down the unique valve on your tank, the single valve which allows you to breathe underwater?
In technical diving you can close down one valve and continue to breathe from the other one, with the amount of gas of 2 tanks due to the manifold link, and you can even isolate the two tanks completely by closing the manifold... What peace of mind!

During the PADI Tec 40 course, you will learn:

During the class, you will learn safety drills, make four dives in open water as well as one dive in confined waters.

  • How to dive with a twin tank (double cylinders).
  • Setting up the technical diving gear and equipments.

  • Planning a limited decompression dive and dive your plan.
