PADI Technical Courses 

Experience the extreme side of diving and explore the depths and realms untouched by the majority of the worlds diving population?
If you think you have what it takes to become a DSAT technical diver, Aura dive resort is offering you following PADI Technical Diving courses.

This program is ideal for entry level divers or advanced divers curious about technical (tec) diving, but not sure about jumping into a course? Discover Tec is a short confined water experience that allows you to give technical diving a try. You get to wear all the extra tec diving gear and take it for a test dive. Your PADI Tec Instructor may introduce a few basic skills, such as primary to secondary regulator switch and gas shutdown procedures.

If you’re interested in tec diving and are a PADI Open Water Diver, at least 18 years old, and have a minimum of 10 logged dives, you qualify for Discover Tec.

During this experience our PADI Tec Instructor will explain the equipment you’ll use and go over basic tec diving procedures, such as the importance of diving in teams. You’ll get in the water, make gear adjustments, then simply explore and get a feel for the equipment.

_MG_2165Go beyond recreational diving limits and enter the realm of technical diving with the PADI Tec 40 diver course. The PADI Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving. Tec 40 is the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Diver course and bridges the gap between no stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving.

In this course you gain experience and begin building the knowledge and skills you need to continue your tec diver training. You will qualify to make limited decompression using one additional deco cylinder of up to EANx50. Depth is limited to 40 meters/130 feet.

To enroll in the Tec 40 course, you must be:

•   A PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
•   A PADI Enriched Air Diver with at least 10 dives using enriched air deeper than 18 meters/60 feet
•   A PADI Deep Diver or proof of at least 10 dives to 30 meters/100 feet
•   At least 18 years old and have a minimum of 30 logged dives

PADI Tec 40 course is the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Diver course. After successfully completing this course you may credit your PADI Tec 40 course training towards the PADI Tec 45 and Tec 50 courses.

_MG_2188The PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. You’ll extend your depth limit to 45 meters/145 feet and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives, making gas switch between air and enriched air (up to 100% oxygen) for conservatism or to accelerate decompression, with no time restrictions on the amount of decompression time you can build up.

Tec 45 puts you in a complete tec diving rig, which can be either backmount or sidemount. This is a course where you’ll rise to the challenge and make the commitment to become a technical diver.

To enroll in the Tec 45 course, you must:

•  Be a PADI Tec 40 diver
•  Be a PADI Rescue Diver
•  Have a min. of 50 logged dives, at least 12 dives on Nitrox deeper than 18 metres and 10 dives deeper than 30 metres

The Tec 50 course includes two knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions and four open water dives. A primary focus of this course is mission planning and execution. You also learn more about handling emergencies and how to think like a technical diver.

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 meters/165 feet, switch gas mixes up to 100% Oxygen to make . 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.

To enroll in the Tec 50 course, you must:

•  Be a PADI Tec 45 diver
•  Have a min. of 100 logged dives, with at least 20 dives on Nitrox deeper than 18 meters and 15 dives deeper than 30 meters
