Tec 40 Diver Course

PADi Tec 40 Diver course

The PADi DSAT Tec 40 course introduces divers to limited decompression diving within accepted recreational depth limits.

Although you should take this course in complete Technical diving equipment if you wish to continue on through the PADi Tec 45 and Tec 50, the limits of the PADi Tec 40 qualification allow for more flexibility.

Therefore, it is easy to accommodate divers interested in very limited technical diving since the Tec 40 equipment requirements are only a bit beyond the standard recreational kit.

If you're interested in technical diving, but haven't yet met the prerequisites for the PADi Tec 50 course, you can consider enrolling in the DSAT Tec 40. It is the first rung in the Tec Deep ladder, the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Deep course, consists of the first four dives. You will learn to use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with no more than 10 minutes of total decompression and not deeper than 40 metres/130 feet.
