All Tec Scuba Diving Courses

All our Technical scuba diving courses and Tec diving specialties.

Technical diving courses Below are listed all our tec diving courses, but before to jump to the scuba diving "dark side," you can give it a try!

You can dive fully geared with a technical diving gear on our special "Discover Tec" or "Intro to Tec Diving" programs, because after all, you do not know if you will like to become a technical diver.

Technical diving is not "hard," like many scuba divers thought, as a matter of fact having twin tanks on your back or side-mounted will put yourself in a safer position (horizontal) more naturally than a single tank.
But most important you will have an exceptional knowledge of diving, physiology, and physics than anyone else in the recreational diving domain won't have.

A tec diver does dive its dive tables. During a technical diving course, you will learn to do your decompression tables as you will be able to do decompression dives. A tech diver does not need a diving computer, just a bottom timer.

Overall tec diving allows you to go deeper, for example to visit a wreck at 80 meters (260 feet), and stay longer like 2 or 3 hours underwater if you want.
But your technical knowledge can be applied to your recreational diving like staying one hour at just 20 meters (100 feet), if you wish, carrying a poney like a little 5.7 liters' tank (AKA a S-40 cylinder) of fifty percent nitrox to clean up on the way back.

More About Tec Diving

Our Tec scuba diving courses, Tec classes and lessons.

Although we do have tec instructors from many different agencies, we mainly teach technical diving from the PADI diving agency. We are also a dive center partner with GUE (Global Underwater Explorers).

The PADI Discover Tec diving.

PADI has a program to discover the technical way of diving with this intro to tec. Suit up with a tec diving gear and take it to the test. Once you have tried the basics of technical diving, you will know if you want to go further in technical diving and going deeper or stay longer underwater. This is a unique experience.

The PADI tec 40 course

The PADI Tec 40 course.

Transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving and build up your knowledge and skills as you will get to gain experience in this adventure. The tec 40 course is the first level to take your first step into the world of technical diving. The tec 40 certification will allow you to dive down to 40 meters with a set of twin tanks (cylinders) and a sling tank (cylinder).

The PADI tec 45 course

The PADI Tec 45 course.

Take a step ahead in your technical diving as you take the Tec 45 course and enhance your knowledge and skills to go further with a new set of nitrox mix to use for deepening your adventure. During this course, as you improve your skills, you will also learn how to accelerate your decompression stops with different Nitrox.

The PADI Tec 50 course

The PADI Tec 50 course.

Go for more and obtain a recognition on gaining a high level of skills and knowledge as you take the Tec 50 diving course to learn to dive further and enjoy the adventure. This technical diving course is the equivalent of the "old" DSAT Tec Deep Diver where your back gas is air and learn to accelerate your decompression time with multiple deco tanks filled with nitrox up to 100% of oxygen.

The PADI tec trimix 65 course

The PADI Tec Trimix 65 course.

Go deeper with your technical scuba diving as you take the PADI Tec Trimix 65 and learn the advantages of using a trimix normoxic (a blend of helium, oxygen, and nitrogen breathable at the surface) during a 65 meters (210 feet) dive. As you go deeper, the nitrogen will give you narcosis, so to solve this problem we replace a portion of the nitrogen gas with some helium.

The PADI tec trimix diver course

The PADI Tec Trimix Diver course.

Take on the extreme technical diving course as you go down deeper than 90 meters (300 feet) and be part of the elite group who accomplishes this course. This trimix course will make you a "Full trimix" diver, diving with a hypoxic gas (trimix, heliox, triox). You will also dive with hyperoxic trimix gases to learn how to compensate "the counter diffusion" effects and so much more.

PADI tec sidemount diving course

The PADI Tec Sidemount diving course.

The PADI Tec Sidemount course will teach you on the proper sidemount configuration. You will learn to dive with four sling tanks (cylinders) side-mounted, where two tanks are your back gas, and two tanks are your deco gas. The course can take two or more days, depending if it's a transition between a tec diver who want to swith from a "classic" back-mount gear, or if you want to learn tec diving but directly with a sidemount scuba-gear.

The PADI Tec 40 CCR Rebreather course.

In the near future, the deep technical diving will be mostly made on a Closed Circuit Rebreather, as diving deep on open circuit is indeed cumbersome. All starts with the Tec 40 CCR (Closed Circuit Rebreather) course, to enter into the technical scuba diving realm. But nowadays the most uses of the different types of CCR (electronic / eCCr, and manual/ mCCR) are made by photographers because they do not produce bubbles which scare the fishes.

The PADI Tec 60 CCR Rebreather course.

The PADI Tec 60 CCR (Closed Circuit Rebreather) diver is the next logical step of tec diving with any type of CCRs (eCCRs or mCCRs). You will use a normoxic trimix or a normoxic heliox as a diluent (breathable on the surface). You will also learn multiple decompression stops for a maximum depth of 60 meters (200 feet) during the Tec 60 CCR course.

The PADI tec 100 CCR Rebreather course.

The final training in the PADI Tec Closed Circuit Rebreather is the Tec 100 CCR Rebreather Diver course. The training includes the use of hypoxic trimix or heliox as a diluent and as a bailout. You will learn to plan and dive hypoxic gases on any CCRs (eCCRs and mCCRs). The maximum depth during the Tec 100 CCR diver course is 100 meters (330 feet), but you already knew it by the name.
