READ THIS PART - I'm glad you found this - but its time we had an honest conversation. You aren't going to get the information you want about technical diving from a website, and I can't qualify you to see if you are ready to take the next step.
Let me do my best to answer some of your questions when it comes to technical diving, below you will find a list of classes we offer with no opportunity to sign up. If you are serious about technical diving, pick up the phone and call - or Email me to schedule a time to chat.
This short course is designed to let divers experience technical diving in confined water. Get introduced a few basic skills and procedures.
The PADI Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving. It's a great place to start because it's the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Diver course and bridges the gap between no stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving.
PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. You'll extend your depth limit to 145 feet and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives using a single stage/decompression cylinder.
The third part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program is Tec 50. As a Tec 50 diver, you show that you've developed competency as a tec diver and have the skills to dive to a maximum of 165 feet
The future of deep tec diving belongs to the CCR (closed circuit rebreather) and the Tec 40 CCR course is where it all starts
Tec 60 CCR Diver is the second level of technical diving training with Type T CCRs. By completing the Tec 60 CCR course, you extend your CCR diving adventures down to a maximum depth of 200 feet.
Wearing more than one tank has become increasingly popular for technical diving. With the Tec Sidemount Diver course you can apply what you learn to other TecRec courses.
The TDI Intro to Tech Course is an introductory course that expands on recreational training by improving dive planning methods, in-water skills, and streamlining existing gear configurations in a controlled and fun learning environment.
The TDI Advanced Nitrox Course qualifies divers to use enriched air nitrox from EAN 21 through EAN 100 percent within your current certification level to a maximum depth of 40 metres/130 feet during dives that do not require staged decompression.
The TDI Decompression Procedures Course prepares you for planned staged decompression diving. With a maximum operating depth of 150 feet, this course is your first step beyond the normal sport diving limits.
Using the latest technology in CCR’s can maximize your gas supply and provide an optimum breathing gas for any depth by maintaining a constant partial pressure of oxygen
This course provides the training required to competently blend nitrox gas. The objective of this course is to train candidates in the proper techniques, equipment requirements and hazards involved in blending nitrox gases for recreational scuba diving activities.
