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

have fun with the tec 40 course Technical diving is all about redondancy and safety, this will allow you to go deeper and stay longer underwater. You will use a set of twin tanks (2 cylinders) on your back, with a manifold between 2 separate valves and 2 first stages (one on each valve).
Once you will learn to dive with a setup of twin tanks (2 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 the valve (or the first stage) in a regular single tank setup (1 cylinder)... Will you shut down the unique valve on your tank, the unique valve which allow you to breath underwater?
In technical diving you have the possibility to shut down one valve and continue to breath from the other one, with the amount of gas of 2 tanks due to the manifold link, and you can even isolate completely the 2 tanks by closing the maniforld... What a peace in mind!

During the PADI tec 40 course, you will learn:

  • How to dive with a twin tank (2 cylinders).
  • Setting up with your technical diving gear and equipments.
  • Team diving techniques and emergency procedures (like manifold shut down, valve shut down...).
