Course Description

The Tec 50 course completes your training as an entry-level tec diver, taking you past the limits of recreational diving and the third part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. 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 50 metres/165 feet. You know how to make extended, accelerated decompression stops using up to two gases. It’s not easy to reach this level and earning your Tec 50 certification opens the door to deeper diving expeditions.

What will I do?

During the Tec 50 course, you:

– Make actual decompression dives as deep as 50 metres/165 feet

– Use enriched air nitrox and/or oxygen for decompression

– Use desktop decompression software to create custom dive tables and plan your dives

– Qualify to make technical decompression dives independently

What scuba gear will I use?

You use technical scuba diving equipment

The Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak, which introduces you to tec diving lingo, emergency procedures, decompression and stage cylinder handling and gas planning. The pak includes a manual, dive planning checklist and dive planning slate. The optional Equipment Set-up and Key Skills video on DVD is a great tool to help you practice at home in between your tec diving adventures.
