PADI TEC 65 TRIMIX
The PADI Tec 65 Trimix course introduces divers to the first stages of trimix diving enabling the diver to make trimix decompression dives that employ nitrox and oxygen for accelerated decompression using trimix with 18 per cent or more oxygen as bottom gas up to a depth of 65 meters. The course consists of self-study followed by five open water dives conducted over four days.
To enrol in the PADI Tec 65 Trimix you need to:
- Be a minimum of 18 years of age

Students who qualify through a qualifying certification other than PADI Tec Deep Diver must read the Tec Deep Diver manual and complete the knowledge reviews prior to beginning the course
