The Tec 45 course

Tec 45 picks up where Tec 40 leaves off and takes your training as a Tec diver further and deeper.

What Will I Learn?

  • The skills and equipment and planning required to dive to a maximum of 45 metres
  • The knowledge to plan and execute single and repetitive decompression dives using a single stage cylinder of EANx or oxygen to accelerate or add conservatism to the decompression stops.
  • There would be no time limit to amount of decompression
  • Prepare for and respond to foreseeable technical diving emergencies
  • Master the basic skills and procedures you will need as you move into deeper technical  diving
