Description

The PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program. You’ll extend your depth limit to 45 metres/145 feet and learn to plan and execute repetitive decompression dives using a single stage/decompression cylinder. It puts you in a complete tec diving rig, which can be either backmount or sidemount. You’ll also make accelerated decompression dives using EANx or pure oxygen. 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
  • Minimum 50 logged dives
  • Minimum 12 nitrox dives
  • Minimum 10 deep dives
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months
  • Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply.

The end of this class is where you can really go out and start to get some technical diving experience. You are rewarded for all of the hard work you have put into the last two classes. At this level you also start to really get involved with the tech diving community and get to experience all of those dive sites that have been just out of reach or get to spend more time on the ones you love.

Academic

Your Tec 45 training consists of three knowledge development sections, three practical application sessions and four open water dives. Building on what you learned in the Tec 40 course, you focus on the function and maintenance of tec diving equipment and associated issues. You continue fine-tuning gas planning and calculating accelerated decompression stops. Plus, you learn to think like a technical diver.

Equipment

You’ll use full technical equipment, which includes wings and doubles plus an additional deco cylinder, or you may use a technical sidemount configuration.
