Why do you need to learn the PADI Tec 45?
With the PADI Tec 45, you will learn how to accelarate your decompression stops by carrying a sling tank (sided cylinder) at 50% oxygen or 100% O2.
The PADI Tec 45 certification will allow you to dive down to 45 meters (145 feet) of depth, and authorize you to do decompression dives with accelerated gases.
Once certified you will use a full Tec diving rig, which can be a backmount twin tank (twin cylinder) or sidemount, and have the knowledge to handle and dive with a sling tank (cylinder) to do decompression stops.
You will be able to use all kind of nitrox up to pure oxygen (O2) as an accelerated decompression gas instead of using air.
