PADI TEC 45
To venture outside the world of recreational diving requires training and equipment beyond the scope of that learned in recreational scuba diving courses. The PADI Tec Deep program is split into five courses which lead you from entry level technical diving through to a no depth limits trimix certification.
The level of certification you wish to obtain is governed solely by your requirements. The Tec 45 course introduces recreational divers to the equipment and procedures needed to dive to 45 meters with unlimited decompression and the use of up to 100 per cent nitrox for accelerated decompression.
To enrol in the PADI Tec 45 course you need to:
- Be a minimum of 18 years of age.
- Be certified as a Tec 40 diver or provide a qualifying certification from another training organization. For the purposes of this level, a qualifying technical certification is one that qualifies the student to make decompression dives to 40 meters using air, nitrox, and oxygen using open circuit, double cylinder scuba equipment.
- Be certified as a PADI Rescue Diver or provide a qualifying certification from another training organization. For this course, a qualifying certification is proof of training in diver rescue. Students who meet this prerequisite through a qualifying certification must provide proof of training in CPR and First Aid within the previous two years.
- Have a minimum of 50 logged dives, of which at least 10 dives deeper than 30 meters
- Have a medical form signed by your physician within the last 12 months
Included in the course are all training, transport to the dive sites, and the following equipment rental: cylinder, wing and backplate, regulator and specialized equipment hire. Other equipment hires, boat/ferry fees (if applicable), accommodation, and eLearning are not included.
