Technical Diving

Why take this course?

The Tec 45 course picks up where Tec 40 leaves off and takes your training as a tec diver further and deeper. Tec 45 qualifies divers to make extended no stop dives, and accelerated decompression dives to a maximum of 45m/145ft. Divers use air and any EANx mix and oxygen with a maximum of 2 gas mixtures.

You’ll learn to make gas switch, extended no-decompression dives using air and enriched air to 145 feet, prepare for and respond to foreseeable technical diving emergencies, and master the basic skills and procedures you’ll need as you move into deeper technical diving.
