PADI Technical Diver Training
Kiwidivers Technical Diving Courses
If you want a one day experience with a technical instructor showing you what all the extra equipment is for and just how easy it is to dive in technical configuration then the Discover Tec experience may just be what you need to answer all those questions.
You will learn about the differences in technical equipment, how to choose the best equipment and configure it for technical diving. You will also learn some new safety drills to practice while diving in double cylinders.
You do not need to be a Tec Diver or Sidemount Diver to get started on the Tec Sidemount Diver course. It is a great way to get an introduction into Technical Diving and Sidemount Diving at the same time.
As the entry point into PADI technical courses the Tec 40 provides a transition from recreational to technical diving. Although the use of full tech gear (doubles and wings or Sidemount) is preferred, it does allow modified use of recreational gear in some situations, provided the diver has two separate regulators, with one of the first stages fitted with a long hose.
As the second module in the full PADI Tec Deep Diver course, the Tec 45 course builds on the skills you learned in Tec 40 and takes your training as a tec diver further and deeper. After successful completion of the DSAT Tec 45 course, you will be able to conduct gas-switch extended no-decompression dives, decompression dives, and accelerated decompression dives using air and enriched air to a depth of 45 meters.
The Tec 50 course covers Technical diving risks and responsibilities, technical equipment rigging, gas planning, team diving, technical pre-dive checks, specific tech diving hand signals, gas shut down drills, gas switching, long hose gas sharing, lift bag deployment, removal, and replacement of deco cylinders, equipment and gas failure procedures, handling technical diver emergencies and rescue drills, oxygen management, decompression computer software, executing decompression stops and dives.
