PADI TEC 40 course

  • The course takes place at a location where it transforms the mindset of a recreational diver into a technical one.

  • The course is the first step towards becoming a fully-fledged technical diver and serves as a practical bridge between recreational diving and initial decompression dives in technical diving.

  • It is a fundamental technical course where you will enhance your skills and techniques that will be necessary for technical diving.

  • At this stage, it is still allowed to use partially recreational equipment, or you can already be in full technical gear.

  • It is also possible to complete the course in a sidemount configuration, which is becoming increasingly popular worldwide.

  • You will learn how to plan and execute decompression dives using an additional aluminum cylinder, known as a stage, which is mounted on your left side. It contains Nitrox 50% gas.

  • The course consists of four dives; the first dive can also be done in a pool, which is ideal for the winter season, while the rest are conducted in the spring/summer months.

  • During the course, you will become acquainted with programs for planning technical dives.

  • Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to dive to a depth of 40m with a maximum of 10 minutes of decompression.

  • This course is a prerequisite for the next course, the PADI TEC 45 program.


    Requirements for enrollment:

  • If you are interested in this course, you must be at least a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent).

  • PADI Nitrox Diver with a minimum of 10 logged dives using Nitrox to 18m (or equivalent).

  • PADI Deep Diver with a minimum of 10 logged dives to 30m (or equivalent).

  • At least 18 years old.
